Visibility: Get a complete view of your assets and security threats

With more and more managed and unmanaged assets on your network, getting a complete view of your IT infrastructure is no small task. Nexpose provides transparency of your devices and virtual assets to create a single view of your network that is shared among all stakeholders. It also enables you to understand which threats put your organization at the greatest risk and how those connect to your environment.

With Rapid7 you can:

  • Scan your IPv4 and IPv6 environments to discover your physical and virtual assets. Nexpose even discovers risk associated with IPv6 devices that may be enabled by default on your IPv4 environments.
  • Always know what assets you have, no matter their status.
  • Inventory and group assets into a variety of logical organizational categories. What happens when new assets are added or deleted? No problem. Your asset groups automatically and dynamically update.
  • Scan for current and emerging threats—including vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and the impact of malware – and see how they connect to your environment.
  • Enable stakeholders to manage just the assets they own and only see what matters to them.

Management: Create insight into the effectiveness of your vulnerability management program

Once Nexpose has discovered assets in your environment and scanned these for vulnerabilities, it then prioritizes these threats that need your attention right away based on threat-driven risk-scoring methods. The automated reporting and action plans will leave you confident about managing your threats on your network. Thanks to valuable metrics and the trending reports, you can clearly see how well you are tracking against key risk thresholds that you’ve established.

With Rapid7 solutions, you'll be able to:

  • Prioritize threats based on potential risk, so you can address what's most dangerous first.
  • Assess the potential risks identified by Nexpose scans and cross-check with available exploits and malware kits.
  • Validate vulnerabilities and their risk based on what’s actually exploitable in your environment.
  • Keep track of your security program effectiveness with powerful executive and trending reports.
  • Measure and streamline your internal security operations for optimal effectiveness.
  • Prioritize your resources by impact on your specific environment and threat landscape.
  • Develop a clear plan and route of the most impactful actions.

Action: Fix security issues

Now that you know what’s important, work with the rest of your organization to fix the issues. Nexpose will help you determine which vulnerabilities should be patched and in which cases it makes more sense to look at compensating controls.

Nexpose’s clear remediation reports tell you not only what you need to fix but also the effort required. You can easily make your recommendations for IT more relevant by drilling down into the specific vulnerabilities that only matter to each asset owner, saving them time to fix security issues more efficiently. Make your security operations even more impactful by validating your security risk with Metasploit.
