Rapid7 Defines Next-Generation Analytics Platform for Security and IT Professionals
- Rapid7 Insight platform is the first cloud-based platform to combine vulnerability management, user behavior analytics-powered SIEM, IT log analytics, and application security data
- Evolved platform centralizes operational and security data from the network, endpoints, and the cloud to unify data, accelerate analysis, and reduce cost of ownership
Rapid7introduces two new solutions, on its platform: InsightVM, for live vulnerability and endpoint analytics, and InsightAppSec, for live web application security testing
The cloud-based platform makes it possible for security and IT professionals to share data, research findings, and analytic-processing resources. The Rapid7 Insight platform significantly reduces the overall total cost of ownership inherent with on-premise, analytics-driven solutions, and automatically scales to meet the needs of users, helping to solve challenges presented by rapid data growth for both security and IT.
“Unnecessary complexity is at the heart of many issues security and IT teams face today. Rapid7’s cloud-based, analytics-driven platform evolved because security and IT professionals need intuitive solutions that quickly and easily provide answers to reduce risk,” said
Rapid7’s Insight platform is built on nearly two decades of active research, a constantly expanding vulnerability and exploit database, Rapid7’s Metasploit, and learnings from thousands of penetration tests and the Company’s threat hunting team. This extensive, historical knowledge, combined with advanced analytics - including user behavior and exposure analytics, deception technologies, threat modeling, intelligence feeds, and machine learning - is then applied to customer data from network scans, logs, and endpoints. The Rapid7 Insight platform transforms this user data into answers by delivering actionable guidance for vulnerability management, incident detection, application security, and IT optimization.
“How many of us want more security stuff to install and manage?” asked
The Rapid7 Insight platform uses the same lightweight agent and data collectors across all of its security and IT solutions to gather machine data across logs, endpoint agents, and other sources. This simplified approach to data collection allows users to leverage the same data, collected once, to solve multiple, distinct challenges:
- Vulnerability management teams have greater visibility to better understand the risk posed to their environment, and the most impactful remediations;
- Incident responders are able to detect and respond to incidents in real time;
- IT operations teams are able to drive productivity, maintain uptime, and quickly resolve potential issues; and
- Application security teams are able to investigate vulnerabilities earlier in the development lifecycle.
Introducing Rapid7 InsightVM: advanced vulnerability management analytics and reporting
InsightVM builds on Rapid7’s award-winning, vulnerability management solution, Nexpose, now fully leveraging the power of the cloud to provide live answers to security professionals’ most critical questions. InsightVM’s live monitoring gathers continuous data, whether via agents or agentless, to provide security professionals with increased visibility into the risk posed by their entire network footprint, including cloud, virtual, and endpoints.
“Rapid7’s vulnerability management solution is the only technology I’ve ever used that gives me a full, actionable view of my environment, all the way to the endpoint,” said
InsightVM is designed to provide a fully available, scalable, and efficient way to collect vulnerability data and minimize risk. InsightVM automatically evaluates changes in users’ networks the moment they happen, allowing security professionals to better understand and quickly manage the risk posed to their organization.
Additionally, InsightVM now includes:
- Rapid7 Insight Agent: This lightweight agent gives customers visibility all the way to the endpoint while prioritizing only the most important issues based on Rapid7’s high-fidelity RealRisk score.
- Remediation Workflow: Allows security professionals to build custom filters for remediation tasks, automatically assign issues to the right people, integrate with existing ticketing solutions, and monitor to completion.
- InsightVM Liveboards: Designed to show management teams their most critical risks, and provide the deep intelligence to improve productivity by taking the guesswork out of identifying security trends and priorities.
