"The powerful Metasploit"

What do you like best?

Metasploit is extremely powerful and versatile, from scanning to exploiting, to creating your own payloads it has everything you could possible need for a penetration test or vulnerability analysis of an environment. The pro version of metasploit is more user-friendly to people who do not prefer to use the command-line, which has everything in an easy to find area to execute. The command-line version is just as powerful, it just requires that you are familiar with the various switches and options with metasploit.

What do you dislike?

Theres not a lot to dislike with Metasploit, other than the cost and the potential for an exploit to cause an application to go down or restart. If you are not careful with the options running in Metasploit, you can accidentally cause a service, website, or application to go down or crash, so use with caution. The pro version has an easy to use GUI vs the free version thats on kali and other penetration operating systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always make sure you understand the options that are running to ensure that you don't accidentally cause a service/website/application to be unavailable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are utilizing Metasploit for our penetration tests as one of the tools we use for uncovering vulnerabilities and exploits in organizations environments. It is an extremely powerful and useful tool that can discover weaknesses in all environments. The ease of use with the pro version allows us to quickly train someone on how to use it, and start scanning a network so other members of the team can focus on exploit and vulnerability testing.

"Best Pentesting tool ever"

What do you like best?

It has tons of scripts built in the software out of the box and it has millions of scripts extra available in the web. The best tool for Pentesting ever made, integrated with kali linux but you need high computer knowledge to use it

What do you dislike?

I started using it like 2 years ago, it was little difficult for me at start but when you study and take little courses online and you can start pentesting your own gear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to get around hacking and pentestinng you should use this library without any doubts also if you are worried about your own stuff that could be vulnerable you should use this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Testing our infrastructure security in high levels and solved lots of vulnerabilities that could ruin our network.

Large volume of exploits and payloads. Plus it's open source.

Discovering vulnerabilities, keeping up with the increasing database of exploits. Also understanding how computer networking, IP/TCP can be manipulated to undertake a cyber attack.

What do you like best?

I love the idea of what it does. It is a real time simulation of attackers which is so necessary in any company that is growing/ established.

It is HARD. the learning curve is really big and not many employees will be able to successfully use it easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making sure our database is safe and clear of attackers and figuring out how we can better secure it if else.
