"Almost in excellence"

What do you like best?

The software is very intuitive and therefore easy to use, it should be noted that the RBAC in the console has incredible features. Its diversity of scanning capabilities, such as compliance, vulnerabilities, among others, are simply great.

What do you dislike?

Nexpose It has faults in the filtering system since in comparison with the competing programs it does not have good features, the allocation of tasks is not very good, which generates little confidence in the personnel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good software although it has details such as the lack of connection with factory applications or with suppliers since instead it creates connectors internally. Nexpose's dependence on integration and automation leaves a broad field for improvement. However, it is a practical tool and a good vulnerability management tool that would work properly for any company that requires a simple solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nexpose is used in the company as a departmental vulnerability scanner, the software is really intuitive and helps us greatly to manage the failures that may arise in the company. Although the level of reports it delivers is not the best its use in the company is crucial.

"Nexpose is almost there"

What do you like best?

Intuitive

End point agent deployment and management is easy

RBAC on the console is great

Scanning capabilities like specific vulnerabilities & compliance etc. are good

What do you dislike?

In comparison to Tenable SecurityCenter we saw it didn't exactly find the same vulnerabilities which we would assume it should have

We rely on a ticketing system and not our VM tool to assign tasks so wasn't too useful having that in there

Filtering capabilities aren't as good as its competitors

Recommendations to others considering the product

You may find some features missing or it is not working the way you want from time to time. It is great that Rapid7 open the products' API, and maybe they know their product is NOT perfect nor suit everyone's need. The API can allow you to do more advanced work like automation, but if the team who use or manage it does not has member proficient in scripting or SQL query, it maybe frustrated to just purely going through the GUI or wait the support for solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

NeXpose is well suited for company or team have member(s) with scripting and SQL skills.

What Vulnerability Scanner solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Functions with a new purpose"

What do you like best?

Good interface that is easy to use.

Queries against inventory are useful for everyone. In addition, the implementation and administration of endpoint agents.

What do you dislike?

The license could be a bit expensive.

Maybe the reports could be a bit more robust for a higher level.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has the ability to link almost anything through the Ruby API.

Ideal for small environments with easy use.

Fantasy tool with great value. You can count systems by type faster than any other inventory system.

We have a vulnerability scanner in the administration department. You can choose several options such as discovery, impact analysis, reports and risk ratings.

This platform also uses your finding in the inventory of software and service features and thus obtain a response of the incidents in case you need more in-depth information.

"Useful Risk Management Tool"

What do you like best?

I like that risk analytic reports can be generated from this system, We request these report from our cyber/tech rish team to where we can work to improve our risk and controls framework for certain products and reports.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the report is not at intuitive as I would like. if the person has no background in tech/cyber security and has no history of utilizing these report, it's hard for them to read and grasp an understanding of these reports. Wish these reports that the system generates can be more easily comprehensible or able to be customized.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest others considering Nexpose to test it out, what this software generates might not give the reports/information that the user is looking for or needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nexpose is helping our products team test the risk and controls framework with their reports showing us the risky and issue-prone areas in the risk and controls framework of our larger and more material products.

"A useful tool for endpoint security in large scale applications."

What do you like best?

Nexpose has a simple design, but deceptively simple. Underneath the nicely setup website, there are a myriad of different graphs, data sets, and endpoints to help you stay up to date on your asset security.

What do you dislike?

Leaning curve may be a little hard for new users. There can also be some identification issues with harmless programs like adblockers and dropbox.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

NexPose is an excellent tool for large scale security breach mitigation.

"Best Vuln Management tool"

What do you like best?

It is vendor agnostic and supports on prem and cloud installs easily

What do you dislike?

Nothing major about it. Just minor quirks of leftover items as the tool has developed. This is nothing that impairs performance or results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try and do a full POC. This is not the least expensive tool, but one that is backed with real support and works well in all environments.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Immediate understanding of our vulnerability posture. Eyes on all assets in the enterprise with an ability to put together a patch management program that works.

In house scanning provides valuable insights without ceding control
