Mastering Nexpose and Metasploit: A Lab-Based Approach to Mastery provides tactics on how to perform penetration tests and vulnerability management using the power of Nexpose and Metasploit together, leveraging their strengths to provide readers with the most complete arsenal of hacking and pen testing tools. The book will help users meet their information security and compliance needs.

Metasploit has rapidly become a go-to tool for hackers, pen testers, and InfoSec professionals, and Metasploit's integration with Nexpose has introduced new synergies that enable both products to be used more effectively together than on their own. When used together, Nexpose and Metasploit will help identify any weaknesses in systems or networks.

The author demonstrates how to get the most out of Nexpose and Metasploit, teaching how to install, update, and configure the software, then moving on to advanced techniques. Users will create the lab environment using configured lab machines and links to trial software that complete the lab experience.
