Rapid7 InsightVM has given us a practical view of the vulnerabilities present in our organization.It is stable and scalable.This solution is much more user-friendly than past solutions I have used.NeXpose is a pretty good vulnerability scanner... There's a nice dashboard.

What is useful to me is being able to fulfill very customized scanning policies. In the clinical environment, because of vendor control, we can't perform credential-vulnerability scanning. And network scans, which I've done before, can cause a lot of impact. Being able to create very customized policies to be able to routinely scan and audit our clinical networks, while simultaneously not causing impact, is important to us.I think that this is a good solution for evaluating vulnerability in the network.We really love the Security Center dashboard. It basically performs vulnerability scanning and then outputs a vulnerability data.The most valuable feature of the product is the Assurance Report Card, which gives us an overview of the security poster in just a simple glance.Initial setup was pretty straightforward.It basically reviews our threat landscape vulnerability.

A definite improvement would be to make it easier to run ad-hoc scans without needing to assign the asset to a site or group.There are not enough templates, and the reporting is weak with this solution.This solution creates false-positives which can cause issues with reporting.

If I want to have a very low-managed scan policy, it's a lot of work to create something which is very basic. If I use a tool like Nmap, all I have to do is download it, install it, type in the command, and it's good to go. In Security Center, I have to go through a lot of work to create a policy that's very basic.The web application scanning area can be improved.A good plugin editor would be a good additional option for the Security Center.In terms of configuration, there is some level of flexibility that we are not able to achieve.At times we have had the typical bugs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price of the solution is less than the competitors.I do not have experience with the pricing of the solution.

The pricing is more than Nexpose.The licensing costs for this solution are approximately $100,000 US, and I think that covers everything.We're able to save because we don't have to employ more staff members to help wit ht he scheduling of the scans, running the reports or sending them out to the systems owners. That alone is a big ROI for us.It is slightly more expensive than other solutions in the same sphere.
