This ControlsInsight release provides better user management and visual improvements to the Web interface.


Have users access ControlsInsight without accessing Nexpose


Allow key members of your security team to access ControlsInsight without giving them administrative access to Nexpose. If you are a Nexpose Global Administrator, you can create accounts with the role ControlsInsight User. With this role users can get the critical controls assessment and trends information they need as well as the ability to create reports, without accessing sensitive administrative operations in Nexpose. This improves the overall security of Nexpose and ControlsInsight and simplifies navigation for users who do not need to access Nexpose. To create a ControlsInsight User role:

  1. Go to the Nexpose Administration page.
  2. Click the Create link for Users.
  3. In the User Configuration panel, enter credentials and other information for the new account.
  4. Click the Roles link in the left navigation bar. Then, on the Roles page, select ControlsInsight from the drop-down list.
  5. Complete the account configuration as desired and click Save.

Enjoy improvements to the interface and reports


A number of improvements make the Web interface and reports easier to use:

  • The Status tab on the Threats panel and the Executive Report now display your defense grade as a factor of 10, so that you can determine quickly your margin for improving your defense against threats.
  • ControlsInsight now displays a message when no assets are selected, so that you can quickly take action to select assets for your assessment.
  • The details page for each asset now includes the most recent scan date, allowing you to determine how fresh and timely the assessment is.
  • You can now quickly see how many assets are included in your assessment by viewing the number on the Assets tab of the Threats panel.
  • For the Controls page of the Management panel, the browser navigation bar matches the page title for better clarity.
  • Single-digit numerals at the top of the Executive Report are no longer preceded with zeroes, making them easier to read.
