We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution is expensive, but it's fine for us as we have an open budget for security solutions. Protection and having the system secured is more important."
"The license is IP based. How many IPs you are using to scan is the amount of the license you have to buy. The number of users doesn't matter; many users can use it or only person. It depends on the culture of the organization."
"Our licensing costs are somewhere around $40,000 annually. There are no additional fees."
"The licensing is asset-based and very straightforward."
"Its price is too high. My only concern or issue with Rapid7 is its pricing."
"Comparing the price with the value that we receive, I am not happy with it."
"The license is annual and this is the optimal approach when it comes to most software."
"In some cases, we procure the licenses. In some cases, the customers directly buy the license from Rapid7."
