As the attack surface sprawls, under-resourced security teams have inherent disadvantages. Rapid7 InsightIDR enables resource constrained security teams to achieve sophisticated detection and response, with greater efficiency and efficacy. As a Challenger in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM, we’re proud to represent the huge number of security teams out there today that don’t have time to do it all, but are asked to do it anyway. Our goal is to keep your organization safe by finding and eliminating threats faster and more reliably.

Rapid7 maximizes your most precious resource: time

We are grateful to have a diverse collective of customers and partners around the world, of varying size and industry focus. These smart, agile, maturing teams want to advance their detection and response programs, but their organizations and the threats they face are moving faster than their capacity is growing. The constant that unites all of these teams: they never have enough time. Yet, we feel that despite a well-documented, industry-crushing skills gap, far too many traditional SIEMs and detection products continue to introduce additional noise and complexity for these teams. The result is long days, weekend work, far too many missed dinners / concerts / games, and (scariest of all) missed threats.

The best way to achieve successful detection and response is through a pragmatic and efficient approach. Threats are still a threat—whether or not you’ve had time to set up your complex traditional SIEM or the myriad of point detection solutions around it. Attackers don’t care if you’re ready. In fact, they’re counting on you not to be. Security teams need time and access to expertise to close this gap.

That’s where we believe Rapid7 can help.

Time-to-value and efficiency at every step

From inception, the guiding principle of InsightIDR has been to deliver sophisticated detection and response, in a more efficient and effective way, and here’s how:

  • A cloud-native foundation, SaaS delivery, and software-based collectors means it is faster to deploy, removes hardware burdens that bog teams down, and accelerates the time to actually get insights.
  • Intuitive interfaces, pre-built dashboards and reports, and a robust detections library means that teams are able to activate even the most junior analysts to deliver advanced analysis and threat detections right away.
  • And highly correlated investigation timelines, response recommendations (vetted by Rapid7’s MDR team), and pre-built automation workflows help you with one of the hardest parts of your job: responding to threats before significant damage occurs.

In short, we offer a SIEM that maturing teams can get real value from. Over the last seven years, we’ve struck a balance of adding a multitude of capabilities while never compromising our core tenet and commitment to providing you with productivity efficiency and delivering a better detection and response experience.

High-fidelity, expertly vetted detections

Leveraging a diverse mix of threat intelligence—including unique intel from Rapid7’s renowned open-source projects—the Rapid7 Threat Intelligence and Detections Engineering (TIDE) team curates emergent threat content from all corners of the threat landscape. Our TIDE team is constantly manicuring a library of both known and unknown threats to capture even the most evasive attacks. With this always-up-to-date library and native UEBA, EDR, NDR, deception technology, and cloud TDIR, InsightIDR customers can be confident that the entirety of their attack surface is covered. And because our global MDR team is leveraging the same threat library, you can be certain that alerts will be low noise, highly reliable, and primed for analysts to take action.

The future of detection & response

We believe that as the threat and attack landscape change at a rapid pace, the approaches to unifying data, detecting, and responding need to too. Reducing the noise and accelerating response outcomes is critical for security success - regardless of your security maturity. We also believe that for this reason, Gartner has named us a Challenger in the Magic Quadrant for SIEM – and we will continue to challenge the traditional as we focus on building the right outcomes for our customers. Find a complimentary copy of the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM here.

Just a few of those outcomes we are driving toward in the future:

  • More frictionless access to expertise to ensure analysts always know how to respond and can execute more quickly
  • Deepening our breadth of detections and endpoint coverage for modern, dynamic environments, so customers can continue to leverage InsightIDR as their single source of truth for detection and response
  • Making sure our MSSP partners and their customers are optimized to succeed by providing a more turnkey experience that enables these partners to tap into the scale and efficiency of InsightIDR

We are excited to share more on these initiatives soon. Thank you to our customers and partners for continuing to share your insights, ideas, pains, and future plans. You continue to fuel our innovation and validate that we are on the right track in addressing the needs of maturing security teams.
