As applications increasingly move to virtualized environments, the need for security solutions that examine virtual applications continues to grow.
Security vendor Rapid7 is aiming to help solve the virtual security challenge with a new version of its Nexpose vulnerability management solution. Nexpose 5 integrates scanning of both physical and virtual environments to help identify and mitigate potential security risks.
“With virtualization the security posture today can change at the click of a button,” Tas Giakouminakis, co-founder and CTO of Rapid7 told InternetNews.com. “So what we’ve built into Nexpose 5 is the concept of continuous discovery.”
