Hardware Requirements

  • For an existing Site Coordinator, we recommend assigning an additional 4 GB RAM before configuring Rapid7 InsightVM.

    • 4 Core CPU
    • 8 GB RAM
    • 50 GB disk storage

Configure Rapid7 InsightVM



Some steps while configuring Rapid7 InsightVM are needed to be performed by the SAFE support team. Please get in touch with the SAFE support team to assist you.

On Site Coordinator

  1. Ensure you have the latest install-site-coordinator.sh script present on Site Coordinator. This step is not required if it is a fresh Site Coordinator installation.
    For an already existing Site Coordinator setup, download the script from the SAFE instance. SAFE_URL is the SAFE dashboard’s URL.
    curl -o install-site-coordinator.sh https://<SAFE_URL>/download-scripts/install-site-coordinator.sh
    Tenable SC
  2. For fresh installation of InsightVM connector image version <version>, execute the following command.
    sh install-site-coordinator.sh --connector:insightvm
    The script will prompt for inputs, and answering them will help you configure InsightVM - Rapid7 assessment
    The below screenshot provides an example of the installation.

Upgrade InsightVM - Rapid7 integration

If there is a new update available for an existing Rapid7 InsightVM, the integration can be upgraded to the new version by executing the following command.

sh install-site-coordinator.sh --connector:insightvm  --update

View results of InsightVM - Rapid7 Assessments

After a successful sync, SAFE automatically imports the Rapid7 assets in SAFE. These assets can be viewed in SAFE as per the vertical corresponding to their asset type under the Technology > Inside-out page. Any asset where mapping to the asset type is not found, the asset will still be added under the OTHERS vertical.
