Rapid7 recognised as a leader in vulnerability risk management report from independent research firm

Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ: RPD), a leading provider of analytics solutions for security and IT operations, today announced it has been recognised by Forrester Research, Inc. as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q1 2018 report. Among the vendors included in the report, Rapid7 received the highest scores in both the ‘Strategy’ and ‘Current Offering’ categories.

“Rapid7 has already implemented what VRM will look like in the future,” wrote Forrester report author Josh Zelonis. The report also states: “Rapid7 leverages the same agent for endpoint detection and response as well as VRM to ease deployment, management, and, most importantly, to marry all your endpoint data at the point of collection.”

“Vulnerability risk management requires more than identifying vulnerable systems,” the report continues. “While acquisition of vulnerability data is an essential part of helping security and risk professionals understand their security posture, it’s only one piece of the VRM process.”

Rapid7’s vulnerability management solution, Rapid7 InsightVM, helps companies collect, prioritise, and remediate security risks across their constantly changing modern infrastructure. Powered by the visibility, analytics, and automation capabilities offered across the Rapid7 Insight platform, InsightVM teams have visibility into their full ecosystem, use a universal agent shared across all Insight products, can integrate with both cloud and virtual services, and use analytics-driven live dashboards to prioritise activities based on business needs.
