Description

ISAPI filters and extensions are used to modify or enhance the functionality provided by IIS. Some versions of IIS enable unnecessary filters and extensions by default, and these services have been shown to be historically insecure. It is considered good security practice to remove unneeded components, especially those with a poor track record.

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.
