Rapid7 Nexpose is a Threat Exposure Management solution that dynamically collects data and analyses risk across vulnerabilities, configurations, and controls, from the endpoint to the cloud. Nexpose is engineered to enable IT security teams to identify, assess and respond to critical change as it happens with Adaptive Security. Users can more efficiently manage risk found in operating systems, third-party software, Web applications, browsers and databases all in one solution with over 68,000 vulnerabilities and 163,000 vulnerability checks. The unique integration with Rapid7’s Metasploit, RealRisk score, and contextual business intelligence make Nexpose a Threat Exposure Management solution that prioritises remediation and helps reduce risk. Its user interface, and smart analytics—such as the Top 25 Remediation report and custom reporting—allow security teams to communicate risk and remediation more effectively. Nexpose could be used to improve a company’s overall risk posture to better comply with regulations, including security requirements for PCI, CIS, HIPAA, HITECH Act, FISMA (including SCAP Compliance), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), and NERC CIP. Nexpose, as a core component of Rapid7’s Security Data and Analytics platform, promotes an active, analytics-driven approach to cyber security.
