How Rapid7 helps security teams reduce vulnerabilities

As companies move to the cloud, we take a look at Rapid7 and how it is helping businesses improve cloud security to reduce vulnerabilities

Rapid7 is a provider of security data and analytics solutions enabling organisations to implement an active approach to cybersecurity. 

The company's IT security solutions deliver visibility and insight that help to make informed decisions, create credible action plans, and monitor progress. They simplify compliance and risk management by uniquely combining contextual threat analysis with fast, comprehensive data collection across your users, assets, services, and networks, whether on-premise, mobile, or cloud-based.

The Rapid7 Insight Platform collects data from across your environment, making it easy for teams to manage vulnerabilities, monitor for malicious behaviour, investigate and shut down attacks, and automate operations.

 

Improving cloud security with new capabilities 

The company has recently announced new layered context capabilities within the company’s InsightCloudSec offering, the company’s fully-integrated Cloud-Native Security Platform (CNSP). 

InsightCloudSec enables organisations to improve their cloud security through continuous security and compliance. With the addition of layered context functionality, security teams are provided a consolidated, unified, and real-time view of risk signals, including misconfigurations and public exposure, across their environment.

As security teams struggle to keep up with the adoption of cloud technologies within their organisations, they often end up stitching together multiple point solutions. This leaves teams with limited understanding of risk in their cloud including services, hosts, containers and serverless environments. As a result, the reduction and management of risks found in cloud security becomes extremely difficult and time consuming. Rapid7’s addition of layered context provides organisations with a consolidated, resource-oriented view of the most critical risks in their environment, enabling them to more effectively prioritise and remediate issues.

"Security teams face growing challenges as cloud adoption increases in speed and complexity. In order to enable secure adoption of cloud technologies, security teams need the right context and visibility around their security data. With layered context, security teams are provided a unified, contextualised view of their risk in a single place, ultimately enabling companies to accelerate and innovate at scale,” said Lee Weiner, chief innovation officer at Rapid7.
