From March 14 to 15, we hosted our hugely successful EMEA Partner Summit 2019 in beautiful Portugal, meeting with over 85 partners from over 27 countries all around Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The sun shone, the drinks flowed, and the conversations were in full swing throughout the week as Rapid7’s leadership and product management teams connected with colleagues and peers to discuss how we can securely advance together in 2019 and beyond.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our partners. With EMEA being a 100% channel-focused area for Rapid7, we rely on our partners to not only help us scale and grow, but also to be our eyes and ears on the ground, helping us to support customers, spread the Rapid7 message, and provide technical expertise in their local territories. We were therefore so thrilled that so many of our EMEA partners were able to attend this event and found the experience to be rewarding.

“The partner summit has been truly valuable, and it was also great to meet with the Rapid7 team,” said the director of Caveo Systems, UK. “Learning about the vision, product roadmaps, and the shared experience from other partners truly asserts our belief and confidence on building our business with Rapid7.”

“Compliments to the Rapid7 team,” added the marketing manager of LC Systems, Switzerland. “We felt like we’re together as one big family.”
