Overall Satisfaction with Metasploit

Metasploit Pro is currently being used by the IT security department only and is one of the best tools we've ever used.
  • It's extremely intuitive. When I started off in the security field this tool helped me learn a lot.
  • Metasploit, I believe has the largest exploit database with new additions everyday and implementation is really fast.
  • I along with a lot of security professionals I know, consider Metasploit to be the most valued tool in any penetration tester's arsenal.
  • There is a H-U-G-E community and the support is immense, any issues you have can be addressed there. Doesn't matter if you're a newbie or a seasoned penetration tester, everyone is welcome.
  • Have encountered issues with updating especially after moving from BackTrack to Kali.
  • Sometimes it gets a little buggy, but that's a rare occurrence.
  • You get the best tool there is and considering the positive impact it has on security risk awareness and risk measurement for the company, it is well worth the investment.
  • Negative impact - NONE.
I've used a variety of tools and by far the hands down winner has to be Metasploit, I have had absolutely no trouble with this tool and has been my best friend since I first laid my hands on it. There are a lot of tools out there I have used but the first one that comes to mind the second you hear "Penetration Testing" is Metasploit. I've successfully used it for risk analysis/assessments, validating vulnerabilities and red team-ing in test environments to assess the impact of the exploits. It's just faster, better, intuitive and extremely useful. All in all, I see myself using this tool for years to come and recommend it to every aspiring security professional.
Metasploit is well suited for all information security professionals and penetration testers. I have had the opportunity of meeting with a lot of security professionals over the past year and each and every one of them has recommended this tool. According to me, if you know what you're doing this tool is never "less appropriate" for the job.
