Speed and quality of vulnerability scanning translates to reliable and timely results

What is our primary use case?

We have a few primary use cases. The main one is looking at the visibility of devices that are on our network to keep track of things as they come and go, we're looking for known vulnerabilities whether it's the operating system, network devices, mobile devices, and the like. When we find the vulnerabilities we remediate them, so it's also our job to verify that remediations have been successful. In addition, we are now beginning to get involved in setting security baselines and configuring baselines and using InsightVM to audit those configurations. We're scanning about 6,000 devices. There… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "There are many integrations with things like the VMware NSX that are great, the reporting is really solid."
  • "Some difficulties with the online reporting and lack of integrations."

What other advice do I have?

It's important to take the time to have a full understanding of how schemes are scheduled, how sites and asset groups are set up and make sure it's done upfront. It's a big help. If you remove an old site and recreate it with small differences you lose some of the data associated with the old site. Getting the organization sorted from the beginning would be the biggest piece of advice. It's very important to know what your environment is made up of. People often leave companies without documenting things and there's a lot that not everybody knows about because it was in the back of someone's…

Increases network visibility and vulnerability awareness with zero false positives

What is our primary use case?

The product of ImmuniWeb that I have used the most, for me and for my clients, is On-Demand. The WAPT and MAPT On-Demand delivers in less time, with greater detail and multiple values added, a lot more versus locally-sourced first-level Ethical Hacking. For my clients, Discovery is useful. This allows you to quickly and effectively inventory the whole external surface, with a score of risks and continuous monitoring. The Discovery Corporate Pro delivers what is known as brand monitoring, which is of great value for companies that usually need to mitigate data leaks, impersonation of domains… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the SLA of Zero false-positives, less time of service development, validation of unlimited patched vulnerabilities, and several others."
  • "A great idea would be to support using Discovery on the internal network, allowing delivery of all the features of the current Discovery to internal network resources."

Great vulnerability detection and pretty stable, but an expensive option

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to test web applications regularly.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is able to detect a wide range of vulnerabilities. It's better at it than other products."
  • "Lately, we've seen more false negatives."

What other advice do I have?

While we generally like WebINspect, if a client has a smaller budget, we might suggest Acunetix simply because it is cheaper. However, if a customer's priority was better scanning for their application, we would suggest WebInspect. We like to give our clients options and choices. We prefer to provide them with options that meet their needs and address their pain points. Overall, I would rate the solution seven out of ten. If the price was a bit better, I would rate them higher.
