Press Release: Rapid7 Named a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management

 
 
   Rapid7 positioned highest among Visionaries for ability to execute 
 
   BOSTON, Dec. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rapid7 (NASDAQ:RPD), a leading 
provider of analytics solutions for security and IT operations, today 
announced it has been named a Visionary in Gartner's 2017 Magic Quadrant 
for Security Information and Event Management. Among the vendors 
included in the Visionaries quadrant, Rapid7 is positioned the highest 
for its ability to execute. 
 
   "The SIEM market is mature and very competitive. We are in a broad 
adoption phase, in which multiple vendors can meet the basic 
requirements of a typical customer. The greatest area of unmet need is 
effective detection of targeted attacks and breaches. Organizations are 
failing at early breach detection, with more than 80% of breaches 
undetected by the breached organization. The situation can be improved 
with threat intelligence, behavior profiling and effective analytics," 
wrote Gartner report authors Kelly M. Kavanagh, Principal Research 
Analyst, Toby Bussa, Research Director. 
 
   Rapid7's primary SIEM solution https://www.rapid7.com/solutions/siem/ , 
InsightIDR https://www.rapid7.com/products/insightidr/ , is delivered 
through the Rapid7 Insight platform 
https://www.rapid7.com/products/insight-platform/  and provides log 
collection and management, threat detection rules and correlations, 
advanced analytics, user behavior analytics, machine learning, 
dashboards, case management, and workflow and reporting. The Rapid7 
Insight platform brings analytics to an array of IT challenges-without 
the burden of managing hardware or deciphering new data formats. 
 
   "SIEM vendors continue to increase their native support for behavior 
analysis capabilities as well as integrations with third-party 
technologies, and Gartner customers are increasingly expressing interest 
in developing use cases based on behavior," the report continued.

   "Five years ago, we made a bet that advanced analytics, user monitoring, 
and machine learning would be critical to effectively responding to 
modern cyber attacks. We believe this recognition by Gartner is 
confirmation of that vision," said Corey Thomas, President and CEO of 
Rapid7.

   "We are now focusing on solving automation and orchestration challenges 
for security and IT, most recently with the acquisition of Komand 
https://www.rapid7.com/about/press-releases/rapid7-acquires-security-orchestration-and-automation-company-komand/ 
and integration throughout our SIEM offering. We expect this acquisition 
to further enhance our market position by helping customers to reduce 
time to resolution when an incident occurs, maximize resources, and 
overcome ecosystem complexity," said Thomas. 
 
   In addition to its SIEM capabilities, the Rapid7 Insight platform 
delivers: 
 
 
   -- Vulnerability Management
