The last use case is for customers that want to use the features of Metasploit, for phishing detection. We give awareness about phishing on their email accounts in the organization.

We mainly use Rapid7 Metasploit for the network penetration testing activities. We have used the payload during our penetration testing activities.

We have Rapid7 Metasploit installed on our Kali Linux system and we use it for penetration testing.

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.

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.

The pricing of the solution is pretty good. That said, it would be good if there could be more of a discount. It would be better for us.

There are two versions available, one of which is the Pro version, and the other is the free version. In the four years that we've been using this solution, we've only used the free version. We haven't had any reason to use the Pro Version.

Integration with popular vulnerability scanners would be a useful feature. Better automation capabilities would be an improvement. For example, if a project is moving from a development to a testing environment, then automation is crucial. We are using Jenkins, JIRA, and other tools for SecOps and DevOps. If somebody is storing code or a project in SVN then it needs to be fully automated. We need the ability for the scanner to run, then have Checkmarx scan them, then exploit the vulnerabilities if any are found.

The solution should be more user friendly. Right now, a user needs a certain level of technicality. The solution should improve the responsiveness of its live technical support.
