We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is that it provides a simple English recommendation on actions that you need to take once a vulnerability is discovered."
"The reporting features are good and there are many built-in reports that can be quickly configured."
"All of the features are great."
"Rapid7 Metasploit is a useful product."
"The most valuable feature for us is the support for testing Linux-based web server components."
"The solution is open source and has many small targetted penetration tests that have been written by many people that are useful. You can choose different subjects for the test, such as Oracle databases or Apache servers."
"The reporting on the solution is good."
"Building policies is not that easy. There are some things that are turned off by default, for example, displaying values."
"The interface could be improved by having sub-groups of tests, ultimately making the process of collecting tests faster."
"Rapid7 Metasploit can add a GUI feature because it is only available online."
"Better automation capabilities would be an improvement."
"The solution is not very scalable, it does not provide any automation to be able to scale it."
"At the time I was using it, the graphical user interface needed some improvements."
"The solution should improve the responsiveness of its live technical support."
"The great advantage with Rapid7 Metasploit, of course, is that it's free."
"There are two versions available, one of which is the Pro version, and the other is the free version."
IBM Guardium Vulnerability Assessment scans data infrastructures (databases, data warehouses and big data environments) to detect vulnerabilities, and suggests remedial actions. The solution identifies exposures such as missing patches, weak passwords, unauthorized changes and misconfigured privileges.
