Rapid7 Brings Security Orchestration and Automation Capabilities to its Insight Platform
Automate to Accelerate
As security teams continue to evolve, adapt, and innovate at a rapid rate, the struggle to balance increasing workloads with limited resources, complex ecosystems, and rising threats has never been greater. Orchestration and automation help these teams improve their security posture and create efficiency without sacrificing control of important security and IT processes.
“Technology is being deployed faster than organizations can secure it, and that has placed an enormous burden on security teams that are often understaffed and overwhelmed by the sheer volume of manual work that needs to get done,” said

Implementing InsightConnect’s orchestration and automation workflows makes it simple for organizations to connect tools, streamline processes, and accelerate daily security operations — no code required. Built with security, IT, and development in mind, InsightConnect has a wealth of potential use cases and benefits, all depending on the technologies, processes, and people you want to connect. Examples include:
- Seamless connection to existing security, IT, and development tools — Connect your already-deployed solutions using our library of more than 200 plugins, or import your own.
- Simplified vulnerability remediation — Orchestrate a vulnerability patching process from notification to remediation to ensure critical issues are being addressed before the moment of impact.
- Threat detection, containment, and response — Contain threats by connecting threat detection processes to containments actions. Respond to threats faster by automating enrichment tasks to identify suspicious malware, domains, and other indicators of attack.
- Automation for IT teams — Automate the process of creating and populating service desk tickets with the relevant information needed for the IT team to take action on vulnerabilities, threats, and misconfigurations.
