What makes our vulnerability scanner better?

Real Risk Score

The standard 1-10 CVSS score results in thousands of “critical” vulnerabilities. Our vulnerability scanner's Real Risk Score provides more actionable insight. Taking into account vulnerability age, as well as public exploits/malware kits, our 1-1000 scale highlights the vulnerabilities most likely to be used in an attack, helping you prioritize truly critical issues. When used with our robust tagging system, you can even prioritize the systems most critical to your business, automatically.

Adaptive Security

“Passive scanning” is loaded with false positives and stale data from infrequent data dumps. With Nexpose Adaptive Security, you can automatically detect and assess new devices and new vulnerabilities the moment they access your network. Combined with Rapid7 Insight Agents and dynamic connections to VMware and AWS, Nexpose provides true live monitoring for your changing environment.


Most dashboards are static: a snapshot of your risk at a particular time, unclickable and instantly out of date. Nexpose Liveboards are always live and interactive. You can easily create custom cards and full dashboards for anyone, from CISO to sysadmin, and each card can be queried with simple language to investigate your security program’s progress.

Remediation Workflows and Reports

Help IT help you. With Nexpose remediation reports, show IT the 25 actions they can take right now to reduce the most risk. And with Remediation Workflows (beta), security teams can track remediation progress and reassign resources in real-time, providing continuous visibility into how well issues are being fixed.

Integration with Metasploit

The goal of any security product is to shore up your defenses in the event of an actual attack—what better way to test them than by simulating one? With Metasploit Pro, you can validate your vulnerability scanner results using an automated, closed loop process, ensuring you automatically prioritize the most important assets first: the ones that are easiest to breach.
