Previous Solutions

We previously used Rapid 7. The product was not staying current with shifting trends, sales staff were pushy and management were arrogant.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was simple.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Negotiate for the pricing model that fits your budget. The vendor is willing to customize pricing.

Before choosing this product, we evaluated Rapid 7, Nessus.

Other Advice

Take your time and have each vendor set up an actual proof of concept, rather than just relying on a demo. Get your network and support staff engaged in the process early on because they will be instrumental in deployment and support. Know what you’re trying to accomplish.
