AWS Config

It's really good if your infrastructure services is all in AWS, that means everything could be audited and monitored using AWS config. You also can create alarms to notify you or your team about any changes on your AWS resources which is very useful to prevent abuse if you have a fairly large team. It's also very useful whenever some third party wants to audit your AWS resources, if you have a fairly comprehensive AWS config configured, the auditing process will be easy since they only need to look at your AWS config setup.

Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose)

For highly detailed reports of vulnerabilities in an environment, Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose) is top-notch. The data is easily manipulated to get the results you are looking for. Setting up groups for active scans on a schedule has been a great help as well as the ad-hoc reports for any new vulns being reported.

Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose)

  • Being a vulnerability scanner tool, its purpose is to scan the systems to find the vulnerabilities. We can define the assets like IP address for the scans and it also allows to either schedule the scan at a preferred time or start the scan immediately. Upon completion of the scan, this tool can result provide the details like host type, OS information, hardware address, along with the vulnerabilities.
  • Rapid7 Nexpose has a list of templates to perform the scan. Once the templates are defined then the scans are performed accordingly.
  • It also contains an option to add credentials/authentication using passwords, usernames, private keys to perform the credential-based scans which I think is a great feature.

Cons

AWS Config

  • It's only AWS, no third party.
  • Not the most intuitive interface, but with a little getting used to it is OK.

  • Frequent updates and console lockups.
  • A lot of issues with scans running long out of nowhere, causing resource issues for the next scans.

Would rate lower for other workloads but for AWS workloads its simple to set up, cost effective and customisable. Primary use case is compliance from a governance perspective.

Based on 4 answers
I gave it a seven due to the functionality and general ease of use after the initial setup headaches, but compared to Qualys, Rapid7 Nexpose falls short on features and ease of use. Their support drags this rating down a point as well. I have gone weeks with no update on semi-critical issues and typically have to make call after call to get a semi-coherent response.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Config

I do not know or have used any other product in AWS cloud space that matches what AWS Config provides. We have some custom built monitoring and governance, however that is there because AWS Config does not provide it currently.

For reporting, dashboard, content creation etc. Tenable SecurityCenter is the clear winner with over-the-top capabilities in their application. On the agents side this one was easier to implement and way easier to manage.

Return on Investment

AWS Config

  • A "Big Fish" company that is more concerned about the security of their data came aboard with us more easily since they trust us with the AWS config setup
  • Less time to debug or finding out issue on infrastructure whenever it happens
  • Easy and fast to roll back whenever changes that caused issues happen

  • After spending 2 years configuring, tuning, troubleshooting, and ultimately having nothing but regrets, we migrated away from the tool and accepted the loss.
  • Support had a variety of opinions, none of them consistent. No best practices. Lots of secret tricks known by support, none documented or shared until after problems are found.
  • Consulting services are available to come out and do a health check of your deployment, for a fee.
