"When you connect any new device to the network, Rapid7 has the ability to detect the new device immediately. It can scan that device to detect if it has any vulnerability. It tells you what is vulnerable and what has been misconfigured. It also tells you what is the risk of that misconfiguration or lack of patches and how to resolve the problem."
"We are very satisfied with the reports, as they provide us with the information that is required for our management."
"I have been in contact with technical support and they are not bad."
"The reports in Rapid7 InsightVM are useful when compared to competitors."
"The product is scalable."
"It's very scalable."
"It's a relevant management tool."
"The solution is good because it has a lot of options."
"The most valuable features of Tenable SC are the reports and the dashboards."
"Tenable SC is good for reporting and alerting. The filtering feature is also very valuable. Its integration with multiple vendors is quite good. It can be integrated with SIEM solutions and PAM solutions such as Thycotic, which is very helpful."
"The solution is one of the most, if not the most, stable product available."
"The usability is really good. It's very easy to use and a good platform. It is scalable and very stable. The technical support is fine and the setup is super easy."
"The feature we've liked most recently was being able to take the YARA rules from FireEye and put them into Tenable's scan for the most recent SolarWinds exploit. That was really useful."
"I find Tenable SC to be a very scalable product."
"We use Tenable to scan all of our environments and plugins for vulnerabilities. Tenable helps us discover network vulnerabilities to threats and piracy."
"Their overall cost of service is pretty good."
"The product does not have the capability to do dynamic scanning of non-web applications."
"There are end-user needs and expectations that are being overlooked in the development that could be addressed by appointing a customer advisory board."
"The reporting could be better."
"The solution could improve by being more secure."
"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."
"We'd like the agent to cover more compliance issues."
"I would say that it improved our visibility, but it left things open."
"Rapid7 InsightVM could be easier to use for those who are using it for the first time."
"Tenable SC can improve by making it easier to create complicated reports and have more effectiveness in the remediation area for comparison between the scans."
"Tenable SC could improve by making the creation of the initial reports easier that correspond to our network."
"The biggest issue I have with the solution is when I'm using the scanning it picks up the original DNS of that device. That means, before we image it and actually change the DNS to something within our company structure, it'll just be random numbers and letters and Tenable will stick to that DNS for a long time."
"For downloading reports, we have to go to the scan and then we have to go to the reports and download the Excel or CSV or PDF. I think these menus and clicks can be minimized."
"Tenable's reporting engine needs improvement. It needs to be more efficient and add more features."
"Current web page needs improvement, slows down processes."
"I think the vendor training provided for Tenable.sc could be a lower price. It's quite expensive for the training."
"There is not much room for improvement. However, there should be a guide that describes the step-by-step procedures for doing tasks. Otherwise, training is required from a senior guy to a junior guy."
