The primary use case of this solution is for vulnerability management. We have monthly scans and reporting. The results are in QRadar, which is our SIEM.

We use Rapid7 for our vulnerability assessment. It scans the network, identifies all of the assets that are present, and then identifies all of the vulnerabilities due to non-patching those systems. Based on that, we can generate reports and make sure that those applications or servers are patched on both the operating system and application level.

We have a few primary use cases. The main one is looking at the visibility of devices that are on our network to keep track of things as they come and go, we're looking for known vulnerabilities whether it's the operating system, network devices, mobile devices, and the like. When we find the vulnerabilities we remediate them, so it's also our job to verify that remediations have been successful. In addition, we are now beginning to get involved in setting security baselines and configuring baselines and using InsightVM to audit those configurations. We're scanning about 6,000 devices. There are about 4,000 users in our environment, they are all IT staff. We also have technical leads from our user services, which is our workstation support, mobile devices, laptops, etc. We've got our infrastructure office which is servers and cloud administration, the IT security group, which is myself, and then our network support team and network administrators as well. It means our IT leadership gets some definite value from the reporting there. The CTO, his assistant, and all the IT managers receive their information from there as well. We have one person working in maintenance, and that's not a full-time position.

The primary use case of this solution is for critical business applications for the web. We have also implemented it to identify when we are changing and an older system like the application client-server, the server two, the network equipment like switch routers, and security solutions.

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".
