We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature for us is the different types of reporting it provides.
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.
The predictive prioritization features are pretty good. They do a lot of research and we trust the research that they do internally. They have knowledge of what's going on with many companies, where we only get a view into what's going on here. So the ability to get best practices out of them as part of this solution, is valuable to us.
Tenable also helps us to focus resources on the vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited. And since it is continuously updated, it allows us to reevaluate quickly if there are new vulnerabilities found...
This solution has a much lower rate of false positives compared to competing products.
One of the most valuable features is their distributed scan model for allotting engines to work together as a pool and handle multiple scans at once, across multiple environments. Automatic scanning distribution is a distinguishing feature of their toolset.
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.
This solution integrates with another module in Metasploit, that doesn't exist in the other solutions. It is subscribed to on our roadmap, but we chose to implement both Nexppose and AppSpider.
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.
There's a lot of information being streamed out of the reports. What would be nice, and maybe we just haven't found it, would be more of an executive-type view. We still expect it to collect all this information, but we would like a feature that would allow us to show it to an executive or a director or someone like that and give them some type of high-level overview but not get into the nitty-gritty.
The vulnerability scan does not work correctly until the access privileges are set by the system administrator.
It's good at creating information, it's good creating dashboards, it's good at creating reports, but if you want to take that reporting metadata and put it into another tool, that is a little bit lacking.
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
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 price of the solution is less than the competitors.
I do not have experience with the pricing of the solution.
We're a Fortune 500 company... our licensing costs [are] in the seven figures.
Costing is pretty reasonable compared to the competition.
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.
