Making security scans faster isn’t always about having faster hardware, it’s also about having faster software too.
This week, security vendor Rapid7 released NeXpose 4.11, the latest version of its security vulnerability management solution. The new release includes an updated PostgreSQL 9.0 database which helps to speed up operations.
“In addition to upgrading the database version, we’ve also done some additional optimization through database partitioning and query optimization and testing,” Richard Li, senior director of product management at Rapid7 told InternetNews.com Li said. “As a result we’ve seen certain operations execute up to 10x faster than before.”
