Rapid7 InsightVM Valuable Features

Owner at a tech services company with 1-10 employees

I liked the dashboard on it. I could customize my dashboard with different widgets and different heat maps. I liked that. That was a feature I liked. If your manager had a different dashboard that they liked, and you tried to go into a meeting and they say, "Well, I think your numbers are wrong because my dashboard says this" Well, you couldn't rapidly say, "Here's the default dashboard for this for risk." Whereas, with Tenable, you could go through a dashboard just for risks, and say, "Hey, let's switch to this dashboard so we're seeing the same numbers without customization."

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 other most valuable feature is that we can integrate Rapid7 InsightVM with JIRA. If a vulnerability in our services or server is found, it directly connects with JIRA and will assign a ticket. We can then share that with our development team or infrastructure team. Within a team, we can share it and assign the ticket, and we can smoothly do the mitigation process.

Also, InsightVM has an image container that can be utilized via a CI/CD pipeline. We can directly integrate with building tools, and we can have vulnerability assessment throughout the development life cycle.

Rapid7's initiative Project Sonar digs out the vulnerabilities arising all over the world and sends feedback to the systems. They then immediately update their databases and begin mitigation processes.

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.

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.

There are a few main features that we are very happy with. Using Rapid7, we can install a scan engine, we can do our VPN connections, and we can conduct internal scans of remote sites. We prefer the web application. It's smarter and more accurate from an application perspective.

InsightVM's most valuable feature is risk scoring, a formula based on different vectors like the ease of exploitation and the availability of the machine. It can be customized according to the customer's needs - for example, if they have an asset that is more vulnerable, they can adjust the risk score according to their infrastructure. It also has a very robust dashboard system and good integration.
