Rapid7 Metasploit Primary Use Case
Principal security consultant at a computer software company with 201-500 employees
We are a solution provider and we offer a variety of services that include security and vulnerability management. Rapid7 Metasploit is one of the products that we use to identify vulnerabilities.
Specifically, Metasploit is for penetration testing. It uses models to check for exploitable vulnerabilities, and if one is detected then we would raise the importance of solving the problem. We normally operate Metasploit at the client site, which helps us to explore and assess the vulnerabilities directly in the environment.

I used the community edition. It's a very handy and powerful product. For a free product, the capabilities are absolutely astonishing.
I used Rapid7 Metasploit as a marketing solution. I was working as a security expert and whenever I would meet a client as a consultant or a freelancer, I would open my laptop and start using the software.
Rapid7 Metasploit is a standalone solution, intended to be used by one person, but it can be used by a few people in a team — maybe 10 people or less.View full review »
