Utilizing an ever-growing database of  exploits, you can safely simulate real-world attacks on your network to train your security team to spot  and stop the real thing. 

AppSpider- Lets you collect all the information needed to test all the apps so that you aren’t left with  gaping application risks. Our dynamic application security testing (DAST) solution crawls to the deepest,  darkest corners of even the most modern and complex apps to effectively test for risk and get you the  insight you need to remediate faster.

With AppSpider on your side (or, rather, all of your sides), you’ll be  able to scan all the apps today and always be ready for whatever comes next.

Nexpose – Vulnerabilities pop up every day. You need constant intelligence to discover them, locate them,  prioritize them for your business, and confirm your exposure has been reduced. Nexpose, Rapid7’s on premises option for vulnerability management software, monitors exposures in real-time and adapts to  new threats with fresh data, ensuring you can always act at the moment of impact.
