For the second year in a row, Rapid7 has been named a Visionary in the Gartner® 2022 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing. We believe we accomplished this by combining an industry-leading dynamic application security testing (DAST) solution with container and cloud security, security across the software development life cycle (SDLC), strategic partnerships, and a customer-centric approach that anticipates the needs of not just security teams but DevOps teams as well. All in a package that is easy to utilize and highly accurate.

We are proud of the approach we have taken to keeping applications and APIs safe and secure. We recognized early that while DAST is the bedrock of a strong application security program, it works best when combined with the core capabilities we have built into our platform that allow for teams across the company to work together, rather than be siloed and inefficient.

Workflows that actually work for your business

We offer support for developer stakeholders across the SDLC (pre- and post-production), actively moving left in the lifecycle, and ensuring that applications and APIs are secure throughout the development process. This means teams can work cross-functionally, saving time and resulting in stronger security protections baked into the applications themselves. Our Attack Replay feature allows developers to confirm a vulnerability on their own, without the need to run a scan, making it even easier to find and remediate risks at any point in the process.

“The product provides our developers with actionable solutions to security risks that was missed during development.”

A full-picture view of your environment

At Rapid7, we are very proud of our history of innovative, modern, and forward-thinking vulnerability management solutions. However, it takes more than that to secure modern web applications. InsightAppSec integrates with the Insight platform, giving you a full view of your production environment. We have made a series of strategic investments and partnerships to expand the level and competency of our Insight platform, including those with Snyk and Checkmarx, which ensure that InsightAppSec is prepared to cover every level of your attack surface from every angle.

Our focus on cloud-native applications, in particular, means we have the tools to protect the most cutting-edge applications and to help those transitioning into the cloud — all with the ease and confidence that comes from our customer-centric approach to application security.

"In my opinion InsightAppSec approaches DAST the optimal way, with a cloud-based interface and the ability to spin up on-premises engines to perform scans. This means we're not responsible for software updates, and the on-premises engines have an auto-update functionality that make them very low maintenance."

World-class DAST

At the heart of our capabilities is our world-class DAST. It's powerful, it's accurate, it's streamlined, and it's cloud-based. This allows for security teams to spin up scans quickly and easily. We frequently hear from customers that we provide the most reliable results. Our Universal Translator allows coverage and attacks to be developed in parallel and released to customers as they are available, and it lets users perform security testing for traditional applications and modern applications.

"Our experience with Rapid7 products has always been positive. InsightAppSec is a great solution for DAST scanning of web apps and API. It gives great results even in unauthenticated scans and has a great UI."

We are truly excited to be recognized as a Visionary in the latest Magic Quadrant, but we're more excited for the many plans we have to improve and grow our AppSec offerings. We have always sought to redefine what modern application security looks like and are grateful to our customers and partners for taking this exciting journey with us.
