Metasploit
is the renowned Penetration testing framework created by H. D. Moore
in 2003, metasploit was created to hack into computer systems for
testing purpose. Metasploit can be used for following purposes:

  • Validate
    security risks as part of your vulnerability management program.
  • Safely
    simulate attacks on your network to uncover security issues.
  • Verify
    your defenses, security controls and mitigation efforts.
  • Measure
    the effectiveness of your security awareness program.
  • Audit password security
    beyond Windows and Linux logins.

Whereas,
Nessus is a proprietary comprehensive vulnerability scanner which is
