Rapid7 Selected by SANS Community as Best Vulnerability Assessment Solution


Boston, MA — April 14, 2015

Rapid7, a leading provider of security data and analytics software and services, has been named Best Vulnerability Assessment provider by security professionals in the SANS Institute's Best of 2014 Awards, which were recently announced. Rapid7's Threat Exposure Management solutions provide information security teams with the capability to assess, prioritize, and more quickly mitigate risk across their environments, from endpoint to the cloud. As part of Rapid7’s comprehensive approach to Threat Exposure Management, its Nexpose product can analyze vulnerabilities, controls, and configurations to find the “who, what, and where” of IT security risk.

"To help customers make better risk management decisions, faster, we deliver a holistic approach to finding, assessing, and prioritizing the remediation of vulnerabilities, controls, and configurations across the modern network," said Lee Weiner, senior vice president of products and engineering at Rapid7. "We're honored that the SANS community feels so positively about our vulnerability management solutions and will continue to deliver innovations in Threat Exposure Management for our customers."

"Despite the growing number of breaches spotlighted in headline news, there are many organizations that are successfully avoiding or preventing breaches yet we never hear about these successes," said John Pescatore, director of Emerging Trends, SANS Institute. "The SANS Best of Awards was created to raise awareness of the solutions that organizations are using to successfully fend off attacks. By showcasing the solutions that are making a difference by reducing the business impact of cyberattacks in real world applications we believe we can help security professionals to reduce the number of successful intrusions."

The SANS Best of 2014 Awards celebrate security products that make a difference. The products were voted on by more than 650 security operations professionals and security managers from within the SANS community, all of whom are actual users of these products. The Awards are an extension of the SANS WhatWorks Program, which creates awareness of security programs and solutions that are actually being used to stop bad guys and improve security.

The Best of 2014 Award winners and honorable mentions will be recognized at the SANS 2015 training event, April 11-18, 2015 in Orlando, Fla.
