We performed a comparison between Rapid7 InsightVM and Skybox Security Suite based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Vulnerability Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Out of all the features, the one item that has been most valuable is the fact that Wiz puts into context all the pieces that create an issue, and applies a particular risk evaluation that helps us prioritize when we need to address a misconfiguration, vulnerability, or any issue that would put our environment into risk."
"When it comes to the process, installation is very easy and does not take long."
"I liked the dashboard on it. I could customize my dashboard with different widgets and different heat maps."
"The discovery and prioritization of vulnerabilities."
"The solution is good because it has a lot of options."
"The risk score that they provide makes it easier to find out the biggest risks. It helped the security officers to understand where the biggest risks are so that they can act on them. They can instruct their IT teams to give them a higher priority and mitigate them."
"One of the most valuable features is it's graphical dashboard feature. It is quite easy to manage the widgets, and we can customize those according to our queries."
"The assessment is most valuable."
"The performance is good."
"It's very supportive and very user-friendly."
"The most valuable feature is firewall management."
"The most impressive feature is optimization and clean-up."
"The performance could be good because we chose it at the time, but it is too complex for us to appreciate its performance because we lack the necessary skills."
"The most valuable features of Skybox Security Suite are all the modules that are provided, such as vulnerability assessments and network, and firewall assessments."
"It shows me a client's or an organization's entire network. I can see everything."
"It has a good policy management feature and can provide customers with good quality outputs."
"The features that I have found most valuable with Skybox Security Suite, and this is because I work on the security side, are the firewall assurance, the change manager and the vulnerability control. These three features are the most impressive from Skybox Security."
"We wish there were a way, beyond providing visibility and automated remediation, to wait on a given remediation, due to a critical aspect, such as the cost associated with a particular upgrade... We would like to see preventive controls that can be applied through Wiz to protect against vulnerabilities that we're not going to be able to remediate immediately."
"In order to be able to properly test the solution and make a decision, I would like to receive the test license code instantly and eliminate the wait time."
"The reporting is very bad when you compare it with other vulnerability assessment tools."
"I would say that it improved our visibility, but it left things open."
"There was functionality present previously, however, currently, we can't integrate directly with Jira Service Desk - only the cloud version."
"InsightVM is getting a little stale and is in danger of falling behind its competitors."
"In terms of improvements, its price could be better. Our main issue with Rapid7 is that it is too expensive. You can only sell it to enterprise accounts. In terms of new features, Rapid7 came up with a product called InsightIDR a couple of years ago, which is a good SIEM solution. We expect that Rapid7 will work on some sort of integration between InsightVM and InsightIDR, where vulnerability or anomaly detected by InsightVM can be reported in InsightIDR in some sort of real-time. Rapid7 doesn't patch. For example, if you have a vulnerability, some products can scan and also do the patching, but Rapid7 does not do the patching. It would be nice if it can also patch."
"The integration with other solutions like JIRA could be better. Perhaps there could be some additional updates in the next phase that could integrate with it, so then you can proceed with the VT much easier."
"They are not satisfied with the complexity of the solution and the price."
"Skybox should improve their UX features by making them easier to use."
"The cloud site could be better. They should provide some use cases to help users."
"Skybox Security Suite can improve the change management module. It is the one part of the tool that is used with the firewall devices and you have a change management module that is used to record changes of all firewalls in the company. It's not compatible with all brands, this is where they can improve the solution."
"The initial setup with Skybox Security is hard. You need one or two strong security engineers on your team."
"Modifications and the deletion of existing policies are currently unavailable."
"There are multiple dashboards but no custom dashboard. It would be good to include a custom dashboard so that we can actually choose which field and what kinds of things we want to look at."
"The price is costly, and I hope they can reduce the cost."
