Faster Remediation of Security Vulnerabilities with Rapid7 InsightVM, Nexpose and Puppet Remediate™
Puppet Remediate Request a demo 

For many organizations, the vulnerability management process between InfoSec and IT Ops teams can be a long, painful and inefficient process. Sophisticated scanning tools are used by InfoSec to identify vulnerabilities. IT Ops then receives a spreadsheet of vulnerabilities, and must manually try to determine what resources are affected, prioritize resources to fix, then remediate them.
This leads to delays and negatively impacts the ability to reduce vulnerabilities present in your systems, leaving your organization exposed to potential risks for longer than necessary and the potential for hefty financial losses.

The Rapid7 InsightVM (or Nexpose) integration with Puppet Remediate enables IT organizations to address vulnerabilities faster. InfoSec runs scans with Rapid7, but instead of manually exporting the results into spreadsheets and emailing them, IT Ops can access read-only live scan data automatically in Puppet Remediate. IT Ops can quickly filter, prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities in a standardized, trackable, and easily auditable way.

Simply put, Rapid7 finds the vulnerabilities, and Puppet remediates them.


Rapid7 InsightVM

InsightVM, Rapid7’s leading vulnerability risk management solution, enables you to gain clarity into the risk across your ecosystem, extend security’s influence across traditionally siloed teams, and see shared progress. InsightVM, powered by the Insight cloud, gives you visibility into not only the risk in your local, remote, cloud, containerized, and virtual infrastructure, but also which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in the wild and how that risk translates to business impact. With this deeper understanding of risk, you can remediate more effectively and track and report on the progress most impactful to your organization.

Rapid7 Nexpose

Nexpose is Rapid7’s on-premises option for vulnerability risk management. Nexpose monitors exposures in real time and adapts to new threats with fresh data, ensuring you can always act before the moment of impact.

Puppet Remediate

Puppet Remediate helps reduce security risks and your organization’s exposure to data breaches by eliminating manual handovers in the vulnerability management process, from scan to find and fix vulnerabilities. It enables you to reduce the number of vulnerabilities present on your infrastructure and the time spent remediating them.

Integration Benefits

The integration of Puppet Remediate with Rapid7 InsightVM or Nexpose vulnerability management data
provides customers with the following benefits:

  • Reduce security risk and exposure to data breaches
  • Eliminate manual data handovers in the vulnerability management process
  • Reduce the number of vulnerabilities present on your infrastructure
  • Reduce the time spent remediating vulnerabilities

How It Works

  1. Rapid7 discovers assets and their vulnerabilities
  2. Puppet Remediate pulls read-only scanning data automatically from Rapid7
  3. The Puppet Remediate dashboard displays a summary of vulnerabilities affecting your infrastructure
  4. In Puppet Remediate, filter by infrastructure impacted or by vulnerability for risk-based prioritization
  5. Fix vulnerable packages with agentless tasks
    • Manage packages and services, or run arbitrary shell commands
    • Automate remediation by uploading existing scripts or adding modules from Puppet Forge
  6. Rapid7 then reports on the success or failure of remediation, confirmed by next scan
