With an effective dashboard, it gives us visibility into people using VPNs

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is looking for people who are using Tor, or VPNs generally, and the only way we can see that is if they log in and then they log in in a foreign country right away, which means they're jumping on to the "escalator".

Pros and Cons

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

    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 contract. It's a service for one to three years. Backing out of it is pretty much impossible. I rate it at eight out of 10. It just works. We haven't had any trouble with it. We've had good support. What's not to like? But it's an eight because the software that can be purchased is not the ultimate software. It's hard to give anybody a 10.

    It scans my production servers, checks their patching levels, and reports on their security. But, the community edition only supports paid domain registrations (so no free emails, such as gmail.com).

    What other advice do I have?

    Nexpose is one of the best solution on the market with very good development. One of it's key features was the On-Premise installation and Community Edition. Also it integrates flawless with Metasploit.
