I would recommend having the distributor help you to explain how this software works and to help with the details. I would rate it at an eight out of ten.

My advice would be to just use it. As a whole, it's a pretty good product. I don't have any problem with it. If they had the audit reporting then I would rate it a ten out of ten, but as it is now, I would rate this solution a nine out of then.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to begin by clearly identifying infrastructure and the most critical assets. This tool will give you good visibility into the network and the assets, but it is only the starting point. It is really the input for the process that you have in place to follow up and patch the assets. Simply knowing that they are vulnerable is not good enough, so the right process has to be put into place before it will work effectively. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

It's important to take the time to have a full understanding of how schemes are scheduled, how sites and asset groups are set up and make sure it's done upfront. It's a big help. If you remove an old site and recreate it with small differences you lose some of the data associated with the old site. Getting the organization sorted from the beginning would be the biggest piece of advice. It's very important to know what your environment is made up of. People often leave companies without documenting things and there's a lot that not everybody knows about because it was in the back of someone's mind. We now have a great repository of information on what's active on our network, what's installed on it, how all of those systems are interacting, and really having that visibility is great. One of the big lessons we were able to get value from immediately was really just having good visibility of what's in our environment. It's a very solid product, reporting is great, it's reliable. We have a lot of faith in the results it gives us. At least once a week, I get a notification with some great new features that they've added that I didn't really even know I wanted, but now I have it and can't imagine life without it. The product is cloud-based, but with an on-prem portion, but it all auto-updates. The actual scanning engine and all of that is on-prem for us. It's a SaaS solution, it's not one where we are running our own servers. It's provided as a service for us on the cloud. The on-premises stuff that we're running is just virtual machines on our VMware environment. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

I would recommend the product. The product is very good. I would rate the product between a nine and a nine point five (out of 10).

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 the scan, perform the reporting, generate the reports, and send it to the central console. I would suggest that customers acquire this solution. In addition to management, we are subscribed to the security dispense team and the company emergency dispense team. We always receive the bulletins, so we are always aware of the vulnerabilities. I appreciate this solution. All of the features that are included are enough for me. This is an excellent solution and I would rate it a ten out of ten.

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.
