"HD Moore is the CSO at Rapid7 and Chief Architect of Metasploit, an open-source penetration testing platform. HD founded the Metasploit Project with the goal of becoming a public resource for exploit code research and development. Rapid7 acquired Metasploit in late 2009. In this interview HD Moore talks about the transition to Rapid7, offers details on the development and different versions of Metasploit and discusses upcoming features.

"What was it like bringing a rather famous open source product with a dedicated user-base like Metasploit into a corporate environment with Rapid7?

"The presence of Rapid7 behind the Metasploit Project has dramatically increased the acceptance of our software within corporate environments. A little-known fact is that customers of our commercial products also receive partial support for the open source product as part of our standard contract. This provides a level of commercial support that was not available previously."
