Metasploit Pro is a straightforward and complete penetration testing solution especially designed for users who need to reduce the risk of a data breach.
It helps them to simulate attacks on their network in a secure environment, validate vulnerabilities, check the security controls and mitigation efforts, as well as manage and organize phishing exposure.
An intuitive and streamlined web-based interface
Once the installation process is finished, Metasploit Pro will open a new window into your default web browser from where you can eliminate false positives from third-party vulnerability scanners and conduct penetration tests through a simple interface.
User-friendly wizards are also available that guide you throughout the entire process of auditing web applications or exploiting vulnerabilities effortlessly.

By accessing the ‘Quick PenTest’ option you are able to configure a test that automatically gathers all the necessary information concerning the target network, launches attacks against the targets and builds a full-detailed report for further analysis.
After specifying the project name and the target addresses, you can easily navigate through tabs such as ‘Configure Scan’, ‘Run Exploits’ and ‘Generate Report’ to set up all the options according to your needs. The application will immediately verify which vulnerabilities really put your data at risk and quickly prioritize all the high-risk threats that need your attention.
