Rapid7 Nexpose

Being a vulnerability scanning tool, Rapid7 Nexpose is very well suited to perform vulnerability scans and document the scan results. Rapid7 Nexpose is well suited if someone wants to perform the credential/authentication scan for assets like public IP addresses. However, I think it is not appropriate when accurate scan results are required because of the number of false positives it provides.

SecurityCenter is definitely the juggernaut of the industry. You don't see many shops that are not using Nessus and or SecurityCenter. As a pen tester, I do not judge shops that use Nessus as a catch all, as there are a lot of things you can get hyper focused on and a tool like this helps you see things you may have missed.

Cons

Rapid7 Nexpose

  • Devices found and scanned are never removed. Removal must be done manually with no option for automation.
  • The database can be fragile. Ours quietly corrupted and progressively degraded until we had to restore and lose 6 months of data. Still didn't fix it and had to be rebuilt again losing all data.
  • Workflow for delegating remediation is supposed to be helpful, but can also become cumbersome.
  • Scheduling can become a nightmare if not monitored closely. We found jobs had failed to run because the server had gone offline. When the server came online, it did not try to run missed jobs. Running missed jobs all at once can overload the server, but searching for and launching a large number of missed jobs manually is a pain.

  • Tenable could make it easier to report on missing reg key.
  • Tenable can also make it easier to report on os level patches vs application patches.

I think Rapid7 Nexpose is a very good vulnerability scanner compared to other vulnerability scanners in the market, although it lacks some accuracy and there is always room for improvement.

Alternatives Considered

Rapid7 Nexpose

Tenable has a more refined look for the reporting that it provides as a result of scanning events, but Nexpose seems to have a better ability to help quantify risk and help prioritize the work needed to get the quickest security result for the team and the company. The Nessus Passive Vulnerability Scanner is a highly desireable tool but can be supplanted with some thought and coding.

Tenable.sc (formerly SecurityCenter)

We selected Tenable because is one of the best solution at the moment. Tenable is a powerful tool that we use for validation of our patching methodology. This is very helpful if you are only patching what the vendor deems as critical and then with this external validation you now have a new source for what is important. The user interface is clean and easy to navigate. Low false positives rapid signature release frequent product enhancement and updates.

Return on Investment

Rapid7 Nexpose

  • Discovery scanning was thorough and it could find almost everything other network devices could see
  • Vulnerability scanning needs more support for newer vulnerabilities as dwell time increases risk
  • Great customer support

  • ROI from Tenable suite of products has been well worth its cost.
  • Their pricing model has changed and they charge higher than their competitors but for the usage we have currently it serves us well.
  • Customization might not be what was expected but I believe we are using the tool to the fullest.
