What is most valuable?

The reporting on the solution is very good. You can choose between pulling a full report or a brief report if you like. It will show, in each section, if it passed or failed. If you utilize the full report, you'll get an explanation as to why it passed or failed as well, for example, each PCI DSS… more»

What needs improvement?

There are some reports that are not so good. They could provide scanning or compliance on some of them. The solution is too slow. It could take a full day to scan. Competitors are much faster.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use a different solution, but we wanted to try this product and so far we really like it.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I personally prefer the on-premises version over the cloud version. I'd recommend the solution, but only the on-premises deployment model as it's very portable and can reside on your workstation. You can use it to provide reports without having to be… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the reporting, which is compliant with international standards. This solution will notify us about different RPGs, including the critical ones, and can report on risk or measure risk. Once we have this… more»

What needs improvement?

This price of this solution is a little bit expensive. The average cost is still good for us because our budget is more open to security solutions. We need twenty-four-hour security because we are a bank.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used Nessus in the past, and the performance of Rapid7 is better.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is a leader in the industry. The reporting is really important for us. We are certified and we are compliant. We needed both AppSpider and Nexpose to complete for our requirements. It also has another useful module called… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before choosing this solution.

What is most valuable?

Rapid7 AppSpider is good at managing different applications. It uses applets and generates reports to cover the PCA/GDPR compliance requirements.

How has it helped my organization?

The identification mechanism can enhance each scan through consideration options. These can be enhanced in terms of identifications and the parameters.

What needs improvement?

Implementing Rapid7 AppSpider requires scanning and self-identification mechanisms. You can add different types of authentication to each scan.

What other advice do I have?

All aspects of Rapid7 AppSpider are good. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this product an eight.

What do you think of Rapid7 AppSpider?

What is most valuable?

I like the ability the product has to detect vulnerabilities quickly, when it has been released in our environment, then displaying them to us.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product needs to be able to scale for large companies, like ours. We have millions of IP addresses that need to be scanned, and the scalability is not great.

What other advice do I have?

It has good features.
