What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is the different types of reporting it provides. For example, the compliance reporting, compliance with the international standard in which we are certified and compliant. This is important for us to… more»

What needs improvement?

We need to scan and identify the different RPGs, the critical ones and the major ones that can generate risk or a measure of risk. We generate the reporting from the system and relay the report to our internal developers. We have our… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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.

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

In this current company, they were using Qualys and I convinced the management to change to Rapid 7. After every event, we are required to automize with information control tools like Sandbox, IPS, and vulnerability management. All of those… more»

What other advice do I have?

Rapid 7 is a leading solution that has been implemented in many companies. In Nexpose you have the console and the app assistant for Rapid 7. The design can be implemented in all of the segments of the network to scan, perform the scale of… more»

What is most valuable?

NeXpose is a pretty good vulnerability scanner, good enough. There's a nice dashboard and it's a pretty cool SIEM.

How has it helped my organization?

We really didn't have any visibility at all and now we do. It's like night and day.

What needs improvement?

We could always have a cheaper price, but other than that it's pretty good stuff. Also, if they’d expand their product line, that would be good, and they are doing so, but they're not done yet.

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

Last year got a new person in the position of information security officer, and he brought the news with him. We went with NeXpose because we wanted to get as many products as we could from the same… more»

What other advice do I have?

Take a test drive. If you don't test drive it, how do you know you're going to like it or if it even works. Would you buy a car without test driving it? Absolutely not. In this case, it’s a sales… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We started with SentinelOne, we looked at CrowdStrike, we looked at Red Canary. The funny thing was, Red Canary was just remarketing CrowdStrike, or something like that. It got to a point where I… more»

How has it helped my organization?

When it comes to the automation, we use the plug-ins that are compatible with the dimensions. Once the builder is done, we run the test cases. Then it is installed onto the server and we run the test cases on the server after the installation.

What needs improvement?

It gives false positives at times, and this a problem. It causes problems with reporting. In addition, I did not find plug-ins for a Rapid7 InsightVM. It would be much more informational to run it through directly, so once the app is installed, once the software is installed on that particular… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I was not involved with the purchase of the product. This is dealt with by our sales team.

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

I previously used Tenable Nessus and Nessus Scan. Insight VM vs Tenable Nessus is a more user-friendly product.

What needs improvement?

There are not enough templates, and the reporting is weak with this solution. It would be great if there were more templates for the analytical reports, such as patch management reports. At present, these do not exist. In addition, there… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is cheaper than other products on the market.

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

I have previously used Qualys, and I find the Rapid7 is a bit limited in terms of reporting.

What other advice do I have?

Users need to customize the policy compliance in order to optimize usage.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Rapid7 vs Tenable Nessus.

What is most valuable?

The feature that we find most valuable is the granularity. You can view your assets however makes the most sense to your business. We found that we could isolate systems easily via tagging and site setup.

How has it helped my organization?

Rapid7 InsightVM has given us a practical view of the vulnerabilities present in our organization. Not only does it verify the vulnerability, but scores it against the skill level of an attacker.

What needs improvement?

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.
