Overall Satisfaction with Rapid7 NeXpose

This tool is being used across a subset of the organization; it is an intuitive vulnerability scanner with amazing support service and solves the purpose. However it has a few downsides when it comes to the level of reporting etc., we expect from a vulnerability management solution.
  • Intuitive
  • End point agent deployment and management is easy
  • RBAC on the console is great
  • Scanning capabilities like specific vulnerabilities & compliance etc. are good
  • In comparison to Tenable SecurityCenter we saw it didn't exactly find the same vulnerabilities which we would assume it should have
  • We rely on a ticketing system and not our VM tool to assign tasks so wasn't too useful having that in there
  • Filtering capabilities aren't as good as its competitors
  • 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
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.
All in all, it's a great vulnerability management platform and would work for most companies looking for a straightforward solution. We rely heavily on integration and automation and it has room for improvement there. We would like it to connect to applications out of the box or vendor supported rather than creating those connectors in-house.
