Rapid7, a Boston-based provider of vulnerability management and penetration testing solutions, today launched NeXpose® 2011 Summer Release, the latest update of the company’s vulnerability management solution, adding support for private cloud deployments based on its multi-tenant architecture, along with other enhancements.

Rapid7NeXpose 2011 Summer Release Brings:

Expanded Deployment Flexibility – With the introduction of multi-tenancy, organizations can deploy NeXpose in a variety of ways, including options for software, appliances, virtual appliances, managed services, laptops and private clouds. Penetration testers can mix and match any of the deployment options, for example, to support security assessments in the field with mobile laptops while leveraging virtual appliances for centralized security assessments of data centers. MSSPs can leverage NeXpose’s multi-tenant architecture to maintain silos of information among its various clients while achieving economies of scale of shared infrastructure.

• Enhanced Scalability, Performance and Availability – Based on NeXpose’s Next Generation Database Architecture, the latest release adds dynamic scan pooling. Without requiring any manual intervention, the pool of available engines that can be leveraged for vulnerability scanning, now dynamically adjusts scan jobs to provide greater efficiency, scanning performance and reliability. Additionally, by pooling connections, page load times, reporting times and memory requirements are significantly reduced.

• Ease-of-Integration and Expanded API Management – Enhanced enterprise support with enriched integration and API management capabilities. Already supporting more than 25 pre-built connectors to SIEM, GRC, IDS/IPS, network topology, penetration testing and other security solution categories, NeXpose’s XML-based open API has been extended to support large enterprises and MSSPs, enabling easier configuration of NeXpose to integrate with third-party systems.

• Improved Administrative Capabilities – Improved administrative capabilities bring more flexible permissions, enhanced reporting and improved workflow support for vulnerability exceptions. With additional pre-defined roles and more than 15 new permissions, end-users can customize permission levels and select who receives access to systems and controls.

Available now, NeXpose 2011 Summer Release supported platforms include Windows Server 2003, VMware ESXi 4, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Windows 2008 and Windows 7.
