Boston, MA – December 6, 2016 – Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ: RPD), a leading provider of data analytics solutions for IT and security professionals, today announced it was named Most Valuable Partner of the Year by the Intel Security Innovation Alliance; Rapid7 was also a finalist for Most Innovative Partner of the Year. The winners were announced at the Intel Security Innovation Alliance Developers Conference, which takes place in conjunction with the Intel Security FOCUS conference. Rapid7 was selected for creating new product integrations that provide greater security against new, sophisticated security threats, and cyber attacks.
On November 3, Rapid7 announced that its live vulnerability management solution, Nexpose, is fully integrated and compatible with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) and McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL). By integrating Nexpose to both McAfee ePO and McAfee DXL, mutual customers now have always-on vulnerability management, visibility into their endpoints and entire IT environments, and the ability to prioritize remediation to maximize impact. The integrations will help organizations break down communication barriers between IT and security teams to collaboratively reduce the risk of a breach.
“The integrated solutions provided by Intel Security and Rapid7 allow customers to streamline their IT and security programs, and can lead to decreased costs for interoperability and increased protection throughout the entire threat defense lifecycle,” said D.J. Long, head of the Intel Security Innovation Alliance. "Rapid7 is a strong contributor to the growing Intel Security Innovation Alliance ecosystem, and we have been consistently impressed with their vision and commitment to delivering innovative solutions that make a difference for our customers.”
“We are honored to accept this award from the Intel Security team and believe deeply in the mission our teams have set out to achieve together,” said Lee Weiner, chief product officer at Rapid7. “Together, we are working to create solutions that deliver actionable results, effectively integrate across common platforms, and improve organizations’ security posture. Intel Security is creating common ground for its partners and helping the industry better meet customer needs."
Through Nexpose integrations with both McAfee ePO and McAfee DXL, mutual customers will have extended visibility into each asset on their network, increasing the ability to manage risk with automated responses to threats, including malicious file infections. Nexpose provides live vulnerability monitoring, allowing customers to automatically collect data and analyze network exposure as it changes. Using this data, Nexpose prioritizes risk based on customer environments and attacker behavior, and then streamlines remediation by aligning IT and security workflows.
Additional integrations with Nexpose include McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) and McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE). Rapid7 is also undertaking additional integrations with key Intel Security technologies to further invest in its strategic partnership.
Rapid7 joined the Intel Security Innovation Alliance in July 2016 and has worked closely with the Intel Security team to accelerate the adoption of security technology and services, helping organizations navigate today’s dynamic IT and security landscapes.
