    451 Research - Rapid7 adds search capabilities with acquisition of Logentries

    Many security analytic vendors are dependent on information collected in SIEM repositories. Rapid7 actually scans for vulnerability and configuration information that is not commonly reported to SIEMs by security providers. We think this gives Rapid7 clearer visibility into the customer’s infrastructure and provides an advantage over many competing behavioral analytic firms that rely on other products reporting relevant data.

    The 451 Group: Metasploit Pro for the enterprise

    Recently leading analyst firm The 451 Group published a report titled "Rapid7 presents penetration testing to the enterprise with Metasploit Pro release". Covering the Metasploit Pro release, The 451 Group made a number of market observations:

    • “We like the teaming features of Metasploit Pro and suspect that the ability to collaboratively work on testing projects will likely be an attractive enticement for large organizations with disparate follow-the-sun testing teams.”
    • “…there are obvious benefits to combining both Metasploit Pro and the company's flagship Nexpose vulnerability management product…”
    • “…vendors like Core and Immunity might see the penetration-testing space become very crowded, very quickly.”
