Boston, MA - April 12, 2012 - Rapid7, the leading provider of security risk intelligence solutions, today announced that it has opened a new office in Sydney, Australia to serve customers and partners in Australia, New Zealand and the surrounding region. In 2011, the Company experienced more than a 400% increase in revenue growth in this region over the previous year, paving the way for further investment to be made. Current local customers include information security consultancy Stratsec, medical equipment manufacturer and distributor ResMed, and the University of Adelaide.

"Australia and New Zealand are important regions for Rapid7 and having a local presence will enable us to better serve the growing market," said Mike Tuchen, CEO of Rapid7.
