Avast CloudCare

Avast CloudCare is very competitively priced for a cloud-managed product. Its management console is excellent, easy to use, and easy to manage resources and policies. There is a good overview of all alerts and issues with clients, and it is easy to apply changes to multiple devices at the same time. It is also easy to split assets into groups and manage the group, whether it is just a specific policy or a particular setting or exception is needed.

Metasploit

It is easy to use with sufficient documentation on how to use the tools for end users or newbies. Experienced testers will find it easy to customise and configure the test cases. Just wished that I could have taken up a course on using this tool in my study days so that I could had explored more and improved my familiarity with the tool, unlike when working where access and time to explore the other features of the tool is limited

  • Scanning our network for new or existing vulnerable systems.
  • Automation of manual tests and exploits to allow what used to be days of effort to be squeezed into hours.
  • Metasploit has become an integral part in our validation of new systems before their inclusion in our production network.

It is an incredibly easy framework to use. We can have new testers come in and immediately start using Metasploit. Also it allows advanced users to customize modules so that the inexperienced testers can use the modules without having all the technical knowledge behind the actual exploit

Super easy to use! Like I said in my prior ratings, this is perfect for newer testers to come right in and start testing. The more experienced testers can even write modules for the more advanced findings so that the newer testers are able to use the modules to accurately test the said findings. This is why it scales so well!

The support at Avast CloudCare is excellent; the guys are professional and know their product very well. They have helped us (in the latter years of us using the product), on multiple occasions, especially when an upgrade goes wrong. Community support is not as high, but that is to be expected, as other products are much more popular and have much better adoption. All in all, although being an average Antivirus solution, the management console is excellent, and the support the company offers is excellent too.

It is very easy to use. Just about any tester of any level of experience can use it, which makes me more confident on network tests. Experiences testers can also write modules fairly easy to let the more inexperienced once replicate their findings. Like I have said in my prior reviews, it is super scaleable for the whole team and modules can be written on the fly so that newer testers can replication senior tester results.

I do not have many key insights regarding implementation of Metasploit, but it would be nice if the package was more friendly to other OS's outside of Debian and Ubuntu. When we install on Ubuntu and Debain (like a kali OS) it is incredibly simple. But if we install it on something such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux or FreeBSD, then we have a lot of issues getting it up and going.

Alternatives Considered

Avast CloudCare

When the product was initially deployed in our organization, it was a stable, dependable, and easy to use Antivirus protection. However, the newer versions, under Avast CloudCare management, had significantly reduced the detection rates, turning it into not as great a product as it once was. This lead me to look into alternatives, and eventually, we decided to replace the product with Sophos Intercept X, with EDR. It is a much more expensive product; however, the features are much better, and the added functionality of, for example, web filtering saves costs elsewhere, so works out only a bit more expensive.

Metasploit

You can configure and develop your own versions of exploits that are suitable for your business. The free version is very useful and the Rapid7 website has a lot of info to help you understand the exploits. Nessus just lets you identify the vulnerabilities but Metasploit lets you attack with vectors.

Return on Investment

Avast CloudCare

  • Below average protection.
  • On the flip-side it is cheap.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Metasploit

  • We have been able to weed out false positives with a more manual vetting of scanned vulnerabilities.
  • Our teams have become more well versed in penetration testing with Metasploit to understand the vulnerabilities potentially present.
