According to World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2021, cyber threats continue to rank among global risks. With the pandemic accelerating technological adoption, it has exposed cyber vulnerabilities and security fault lines in countless organization, while at the same time exacerbated the tech inequalities within and between societies.

Hence, looking at the near future, it is highly critical to continue elevating cybersecurity as a strategic business issue. And just like any other strategic societal challenge, cybersecurity cannot be addressed in silos, but with a cohesive approach. And who better than Rapid7 can help organizations maintain an integrated approach to threat management in this increasingly threat-prone environment? As a company that believes security isn’t hypothetical but a reality for all organizations, Rapid7 is committed to helping organizations build security into the heart of their organization—all with groundbreaking solutions and top-notch security advisory services. Whether an organization is looking for a comprehensive security platform, an assessment to better understand its security posture, or something in between, Rapid7 is the go-to one-stop solution provider.

The Strong Suits

Insight Platform, the company’s cutting-edge antidote to cyber threats gives customers a broad spectrum of solutions for cloud security, vulnerability risk management, threat detection and response, and threat intelligence as well. The company’s best-in-class solutions combined with their strategic expertise and powerful platform give protectors everything they need to secure their environments with ease. Leveraging the interoperability that the Insight Platform advocates, an organization’s Security, IT, and DevOps team now can work in close ties to better application security, detection and response, external threat intelligence, orchestration and automation, and more.

Rapid7’s InsightIDR, one of Insight Platform’s core solutions acts as a client’s security center for incident detection and response, authentication monitoring, and endpoint visibility. The solution identifies unauthorized access from external and internal threats and highlights suspicious activity so you don’t have to weed through thousands of data streams.

The security industry is highly competitive. You need to attract the right talent to compete and the right culture to execute on the company’s vision

Aided with machine learning, advanced analysis, and out-of-the box detections curated by Rapid7’s global SOC team, InsightIDR helps clients to quickly sift through data to identify and respond to real threats, all within one interface.

On the other hand, InsightVM, another of Insight’s vital components,not only provides visibility into the vulnerabilities in your modern IT environment— including local, remote, cloud, containerized, and virtual infrastructure—but also clarity into how those vulnerabilities translate into business risk and which are most likely to be targeted by attackers. InsightVM is not a silver bullet. Instead, it provides the shared view and common language needed to align traditionally siloed teams and drive impact. It also supports a proactive approach to vulnerability management with tracking and metrics that create accountability for remediators, demonstrate impact across teams, and celebrate progress .

Reposing beneath InsightVM and InsightIDR is Rapid7’s InsightAppSec, a part of the company’s security suite that provides Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) for maturing application security professionals. The modern UI and intuitive workflows built on the Insight platform make InsightAppSec easy to deploy, manage, and run. With Scan applications hosted on closed networks with the optional on-premise engine, InsightAppSec is rich in technical detail, and can be integrated with Atlassian Jira that gives developers full visibility within their existing workflows. Even better, the Attack Replay feature of the solution lets developers test source code patches on their own to validate vulnerabilities.

The Advisory Proficiency

It is definitely not all high-grade technological offerings that compel a wide range of organizations to seek Rapid7’s help, but also its world-class security advisory services that set them apart from most of the available cyber security service providers. Rapid7’s Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment utilizes cybersecurity best practices and recognized cyber-frameworks to answer all the questions surrounding a client’s existing security program. The goal of the Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment is to provide a view of the client’s current security posture, an objective review of existing plans, and a guide to strategic planning.

It also helps organizations in developing tactical and strategic directions to further mature and strengthen your security program efforts.
The assessment emphasizes operational best practices for each control area, as well as the organizational effectiveness and maturity of internal policies and procedures.While the Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment is particularly valuable to medium and large businesses, organizations of all sizes can benefit from it.

Then again, for organizations lacking the right people, processes, and technology to develop and advance their security programs, Rapid7 has got them covered as well. By offering an assortment of full-service programs tailored to each client’s unique business needs, and risk, Rapid7 makes every possible effort to make their client’s security program relevant, actionable, and sustainable.

From creating vulnerability management programs to developing security policy, and everything in between—Rapid7 helps organizations create processes and collateral to run any facet of their security program. The Vulnerability Management Program Development offering is intended to help customers build strong vulnerability management practices that ultimately prevent the exploitation of security vulnerabilities that exist within their organization. By collaborating with our customers at each and every step, the Vulnerability Management Program Development offering is completely tailored to any organization regardless of its maturity or overall program needs.

Last but not least, Rapid7’s Merger & Acquisition (M&A) Security Assessment engagements are meant to provide organizations with a cost-efficient, high-value security review during the merger or acquisition process. The program captures an asset’s cybersecurity capability state pre-merger to aid in the final transaction. Often, this assessment identifies large gaps that when left unmanaged, put the entire asset at risk. After conducting the analysis, the team at Rapid7 delivers a report outlining major gaps and consultant observations to help companies move forward with their decisions. Post-merger, the M&A assessment can also be enhanced to provide a go-forward strategic plan, program maturity rating, or conduct a gap assessment.

Finally, with a team of experts who are passionate about advancing security through community-driven research, product development and more, Rapid7 is poised to create a more secure future for various organizations with its suite of solutions and services.All while providing a fully scalable, and efficient way to ace every kind of oncoming cyber threat, and get the right security outcomes based on the goals of an organization.
