Rapid7 Recognized as a Leader in Vulnerability Risk Management Report from Independent Research Firm

Report notes, "Rapid7 has already implemented what VRM will look like in the future" and gives Company Highest Scores in “Strategy” and “Current Offering” Categories

Boston, MA — March 14, 2018

Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ: RPD), a leading provider of analytics solutions for security and IT operations, today announced it has been recognized by Forrester Research, Inc. as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q1 2018 report. Among the vendors included in the report, Rapid7 received the highest scores in both the “Strategy” and “Current Offering” categories.

“Rapid7 has already implemented what VRM will look like in the future,” wrote Forrester report author Josh Zelonis. The report also states: “Rapid7 leverages the same agent for endpoint detection and response as well as VRM to ease deployment, management, and, most importantly, to marry all your endpoint data at the point of collection.”

“Vulnerability risk management requires more than identifying vulnerable systems,” the report continues. “While acquisition of vulnerability data is an essential part of helping security and risk professionals understand their security posture, it’s only one piece of the VRM process.”

Rapid7’s vulnerability management solution, Rapid7 InsightVM, helps companies collect, prioritize, and remediate security risks across their constantly changing modern infrastructure. Powered by the visibility, analytics, and automation capabilities offered across the Rapid7 Insight platform, InsightVM teams have visibility into their full ecosystem, use a universal agent shared across all Insight products, can integrate with both cloud and virtual services, and use analytics-driven live dashboards to prioritize activities based on business needs.

“The incredible complexity and dynamism of today’s corporate IT environments means that an organization’s attack surface can be constantly changing,” said Lee Weiner, chief product officer at Rapid7. “InsightVM provides actionable information that allows security teams to more quickly find, prioritize, and remediate vulnerabilities. It is gratifying to see this vision reflected in customer feedback and, I believe, in our position in the Forrester Wave, and it spurs us to continue delivering the new innovations that drive real value for users.”
