What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is the support for testing Linux-based web server components.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution allows us to offer additional services to our clients. Projects can vary, where one will include vulnerability testing and another may include penetration testing. One of the services that we provide is security during the… more »

What needs improvement?

Integration with popular vulnerability scanners would be a useful feature. Better automation capabilities would be an improvement. For example, if a project is moving from a development to a testing environment, then automation is crucial… more »

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

When we do application-level penetration testing, we employ some manual techniques. Metasploit is generally used at the infrastructure level. We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

For our needs, which is usually a dedicated environment for our customers, I cannot envision any significant improvements that need to be made. My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is that it works well as a component in a… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution automatically discovers vulnerabilities. We don't need to update or fine-tune the tool. It automatically handles that itself. The reporting on the solution is good.

What needs improvement?

The solution should be more user friendly. Right now, a user needs a certain level of technicality. The solution should improve the responsiveness of its live technical support.

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

The pricing of the solution is pretty good. That said, it would be good if there could be more of a discount. It would be better for us.

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

We did use different solutions previously. I know of a few other products the organization utilized before this product.

What other advice do I have?

I used the product previously. Now, I am more of a consultant. I'm not sure what version of the solution I'm currently using is. This product is fantastic. I prefer using it. I'd rate it seven out of ten. If it wasn't for the unpredictable… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable one is the integration between Nmap, the database and Metasploit. That saves a lot of time.

How has it helped my organization?

The search engine is actually pretty cool. It actually allows you to search the vulnerability very fast, and the big difference is that the exploit you see on Metasploit has been tested and imported, it's going to work and it is not going… more »

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

I use the open-source version, not the paid version of this product.

What other advice do I have?

It's not possible to do penetration testing without being very proficient in Metasploit. It's impossible.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Metasploit vs Tenable Nessus and Metasploit vs OpenVAS. These solutions were more general scanners, and not as precise as Metasploit.

What is most valuable?

* The option to generate phishing emails has proven to be very valuable in understanding the behavior of users. * It contains almost all the available exploits and payloads. * The in-built Wireshark is valuable in performing packet analysis. * It has different installation files for different OSs.

What needs improvement?

* The GUI version is not as effective as a command prompt. For general users, the PT using GUI could be improved. At the same, the track of a phishing emails were not accurate sometimes. Rapid7 could work on this further. * Metasploit cannot be installed on a machine with an antivirus. This could be improved. * There were times when it hung, then I had to restart the DB service. This leaves an… more »

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

It is expensive. Our license expired, and our company is not thinking to renew because of our budget.
