Exciting news from Australia!

Rapid7 has successfully completed an Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment to PROTECTED Level for several of our Insight Platform solutions.

What is IRAP?

An IRAP assessment is an independent assessment of the implementation, appropriateness, and effectiveness of a system’s security controls. Achieving IRAP PROTECTED status means Australian Government agencies requiring PROTECTED level controls can access our industry-leading, practitioner-first security solutions. Meeting this status further strengthens our position as a trusted partner for Australian government organizations seeking to enhance their cybersecurity posture.

Rapid7 is one of the only vendors to be IRAP-assessed across what we consider a consolidated cybersecurity operation. This places us in a unique position to supply services across federal, state, and local government in Australia. It provides our government customers with the confidence that we have the right governance and controls in place for our own business in order to deliver that service effectively for our customers, specifically covering:

  • Vulnerability management on traditional infrastructure
  • Endpoints
  • The secure implementation of web applications
  • Detection and response to alerts or threats
  • The ability to securely automate workflows

Why is being IRAP PROTECTED important?

Being IRAP-assessed demonstrates our commitment to providing secure and reliable information security services for Government Systems, Cloud Service Providers, Cloud Services, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Systems, and more widely to our Australian customers.

Importantly, it highlights how we take the shared responsibility model extremely seriously. It also shows we’re protecting our customers’ information and data across their traditional infrastructure and in the cloud.

Which solutions are approved?

Solutions assessed and approved for PROTECTED Level include InsightIDR (detection and response), InsightVM (vulnerability management), InsightAppSec (application security), and InsightConnect (orchestration and automation). These solutions provide a comprehensive security platform to help government agencies tackle the challenges of today's evolving cybersecurity landscape.

The successful completion of the IRAP assessment at the PROTECTED level demonstrates our commitment to supporting Australian government customers. It means they have access to a comprehensive security platform necessary to tackle the ever-evolving challenges of today's cybersecurity landscape.

As more government agencies migrate to hybrid cloud environments, we can help them better manage the growing complexity of identifying and securing the attack surface.

As attackers become increasingly sophisticated, better armed, and faster, the IRAP assessment is yet another string in our cybersecurity bow, showcasing our potential to support Australian Government agencies and more widely, our customers.
