Description

This host is multi-homed, meaning it has multiple active network interfaces with different IP addresses. Multi-homed hosts can provide unauthorized entry points into your organization's network, bypassing the firewall and any other perimiter protections that may be in place.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
