This Rapid7 NeXpose release includes improved coverage for Windows environments, enhanced vulnerability checking, and richer PCI reporting.


Improved fingerprinting for Windows

  • NeXpose fingerprinting has been improved for Windows XP 64-bit environments.


Enhanced vulnerability checking for Red Hat, Solaris, and Oracle environments

  • The NeXpose vulnerability and patch checking coverage has been increased to provide greater detection, precision, and accuracy in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Solaris, and Oracle environments.


Richer PCI reporting

  • The PCI Audit report now provides a PCI "pass" or "fail" score for every vulnerability discovered during the scanning process. PCI scores provide insight into how secure an environment is based on PCI DSS criteria. Having PCI scores in the report improves the visibility of this important security information, so it can be more easily used in remediation planning. This further reduces the time required to determine which vulnerabilities present the greatest challenges to meeting PCI compliance.
