Metasploit: Network Discovery & Imports

Scan your network or import third-party reports

Scan your network with Rapid7 Metasploit's built-in discovery feature or import more than a dozen third-party formats to discover what's on the network prior to your penetration test.

Run a discovery scan from Metasploit

Kickoff one of two types of scans from within Metasploit

  • Launch an advanced nmap scan with our secret sauce of parameters and additional fingerprinting techniques.
  • Start a Nexpose vulnerability scan from within Metasploit that delivers the results back to the Metasploit console.

Import data directly from Nexpose and over a dozen file formats

Connect a Nexpose scan engine with Metasploit to import vulnerability scanning results directly or import one of the following file formats:
