"The solution offers a simplified approach to vulnerability
verification and penetration testing, enabling organizations of any
size to begin the process of understanding and addressing their
security posture without the need for deep technical knowledge.
"Cyber criminals are successful in breaching networks of
enterprises and government agencies every day, creating huge
security concerns and compliance issues. Penetration testing is a
critical step in assessing the risk posture of the IT
infrastructure by complementing vulnerability scans to identify
gaps, verify known vulnerabilities for prioritization and decrease
false positives, and ensure proper remediation.
"Metasploit Community makes security assessments more accessible
to individual and commercial users through an intuitive interface
that offers simplified network discovery and vulnerability
verification for specific exploits. This increases the
effectiveness of vulnerability scanners such as Nexpose to provide
true security risk intelligence."
