Rapid7 Nexpose Community Edition - Free Vulnerability Scanner


It proactively supports the entire vulnerability management lifecycle, including discovery, detection, verification, risk classification, impact analysis, reporting and mitigation.

Nexpose Community Edition Features

Data breaches are growing at an alarming rate. Your attack surface is constantly changing, the adversary is becoming more nimble than your security teams, and your board wants to know what you are doing about it. Nexpose gives you the confidence you need to understand your attack surface, focus on what matters, and create better security outcomes.

  • Real Risk Score – The standard 1-10 CVSS score results in thousands of “critical” vulnerabilities.
  • Adaptive Security – With Adaptive Security, you can automatically detect and assess new devices and new vulnerabilities the moment they access your network.
  • Policy Assessment – Hardening your systems is just as important as finding and fixing vulnerabilities.
  • Remediation Reporting – Help IT help you. With Nexpose remediation reports, show IT the 25 actions they can take right now to reduce the most risk.
  • Integration with Metasploit – With Metasploit Pro, you can validate your vulnerability scanner results using an automated, closed-loop process.
  • Powerful Reporting – Do you know where you should invest energy and budget?
  • Compliance Requirements – Stay compliant with PCI DSS, NERC CIP, FISMA (USGCB/FDCC), HIPAA/HITECH, Top 20 CSC, DISA STIGS, and CIS standards.

Apparently, the enterprise on-premise version is really powerful and comes highly recommended, especially with the integration to Metasploit which can actually validate vulnerabilities and compliance scanning which I’ve personally found to be a pain in the arse (PCI DSS especially).
