Rapid7 InsightVM Valuable Features

IT Security Architect at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees

For us there are many integrations with things like the VMware NSX that are great, the reporting is really solid. I like the ability to set goals and SLAs for remediation. When a new vulnerability is found we can have an SLA associated with it automatically based on severity and some of those things. I like the integration with Cisco ISE for identity and doing automated containments and the like. But the biggest thing for me is the quality of the vulnerability scanning itself. The quality of the results and the timeliness, the speed with which they update with new checks for new vulnerabilities. That is the big thing for us.

I liked the dashboard on it. I could customize my dashboard with different widgets and different heat maps. I liked that. That was a feature I liked. If your manager had a different dashboard that they liked, and you tried to go into a meeting and they say, "Well, I think your numbers are wrong because my dashboard says this" Well, you couldn't rapidly say, "Here's the default dashboard for this for risk." Whereas, with Tenable, you could go through a dashboard just for risks, and say, "Hey, let's switch to this dashboard so we're seeing the same numbers without customization."

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. 

The solution has an excellent feature that scans for vulnerabilities that may affect the Windows operating system. It helps us avoid being affected by WannaCry or other malicious attacks of that nature. It's one of the most useful features that we have. We're able to see more vulnerabilities before they become an issue due to the fact that it's so protective. It's great at helping us avoid malware or ransomware.

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 escalate the dashboard to our top management.

The main functionality of identifying item endpoints that weren't properly patched or had vulnerabilities is the solution's most valuable feature.

When you connect any new device to the network, Rapid7 has the ability to detect the new device immediately. It can scan that device to detect if it has any vulnerability. 

It tells you what is vulnerable and what has been misconfigured. It also tells you what is the risk of that misconfiguration or lack of patches and how to resolve the problem.

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. It will extract all of the information, including the rating and vulnerabilities, in all of the applications that are present, on each of those machines. This is quite relevant because if you have many applications on one server then you don't know if they are individually patched, or not.

The dashboard is not difficult to manage.

We have put in some requests for enhancements and they are listening quite well. When there is something that we want to have enhanced then we can easily chat with the people at Rapid7. If it makes sense and another customer thinks that it makes sense then it will be built into the next release.

We are very satisfied with the reports, as they provide us with the information that is required for our management. You can perform the queries that you need.
