Rapid7 and UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (CAP)

Helping you build (or buy) safer and more secure products

Software and hardware are—to state the obvious—vulnerable, and the goal of every security program is to identify, manage, and mitigate that risk. Of course, that can be easier said than done, so it’s important to find partners that you can trust.

Rapid7 has focused on using our research, community, and solutions to turn data into the answers needed to manage vulnerabilities across data centers, networks, applications, and endpoints. At the same time, for 120 years, UL has been recognized as an organization that brings clarity and empowers the responsible design, production, marketing, and purchase of the goods, solutions, and innovations of today and tomorrow. In today’s world of interconnected devices and people, that also means UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP).

UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program

UL CAP aims to create standardized, repeatable testing criteria for assessing software vulnerabilities.

How UL CAP and Rapid7 are keeping you safer and more secure

UL CAP aims to minimize cybersecurity risks by assessing software vulnerabilities and weaknesses, minimizing exploitation, addressing known malware, reviewing security controls, and increasing security awareness. UL CAP is for vendors looking for trusted support in assessing security risks while they continue to focus on product innovation; the result is safer, more secure products for purchasers of products who want to mitigate risks by sourcing products validated by a trusted third party.

UL CAP has deployed Rapid7 solutions in order to help identify security risks in a wide range of products and systems, including: industrial control systems, medical devices, automotives, HVAC, lighting, smart homes, appliances, alarm systems, fire systems, building automation, smart meters, network equipment, and consumer electronics. By using Rapid7 Nexpose, Metasploit, and AppSpider, UL CAP can reliably mitigate risk—regardless of the environment.


Prepare for UL CAP certification

Software security testing tools from Rapid7 are designated for use in the UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program. Device manufacturers and component suppliers can proactively prepare for UL CAP certification by using the same tools as UL.

Find out how Rapid7 can help your organization prepare for UL CAP certification using:

InsightVM and Nexpose | Vulnerability Management
Collect, monitor, and analyze vulnerabilities on your network in real-time, so you can act at the moment of impact.

Metasploit | Penetration Testing
Find your vulnerabilities with automated penetration tests powered by the world’s largest exploit database.

InsightAppSec | Application Security
Test today’s ever-evolving apps, and reduce risk by remediating earlier in the SDLC.
