Rapid7 Named a Strong Performer in Security Analytics Report from Leading Independent Research Firm

Boston, MA — December 1, 2020

Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ: RPD), a leading provider of security analytics and automation, today announced it has been recognized by Forrester Research, Inc. as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Security Analytics, Q4 2020 report. The report also states that “ease of deployment and operation” were considered strengths based on customer feedback. 

Today’s security teams are facing the mounting challenges of a remote workforce, resource constraints, and an ever-expanding attack surface. Having access to an effective and efficient Security Information and Event Management Solution (SIEM) - like Rapid7’s InsightIDR - to accurately manage risk is becoming critical. 

“Traditional SIEM solutions have not evolved to reduce the rising complexity of today’s modern environments; in fact they’re often adding to it,” said Richard Perkett, senior vice president of detection and response at Rapid7. “InsightIDR is built to increase the effectiveness of security teams by zeroing in on real threats, providing greater environment visibility, and accelerating response time with automation. We believe our position as a Strong Performer in this year’s Forrester Wave validates the investments we’ve made in InsightIDR to truly meet the needs of our customers.”
