The most important aspect of the solution is that it rarely gives false positives, especially compared to other products. It provides very clear reports for our IT teams to look at.

NeXpose is a pretty good vulnerability scanner... There's a nice dashboard.

The most valuable feature is the site scanning, where we can provide a complete subnet and what it is we need to scan on those devices.

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.

The reporting is a little bit tricky because it can be difficult to exactly pinpoint some of the assets to filter them and generate a report.

It would be nice to have an additional feature that would provide reports on who has logged onto the console or who did what on the console.

The reporting has room for improvement. You cannot customize any report. If I need a specific requirement, I have to create a new report for it.

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.
