Description

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-audacity
  • suse-upgrade-audacity-lang

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.
