Rapid7 Achieves AWS Security Competency Status

May 7, 2019

BOSTON, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ: RPD), a leading provider of security analytics and automation, today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency status for its flagship vulnerability management solution, InsightVM. This designation recognizes that Rapid7 has demonstrated proven technology and deep expertise that helps customers achieve their cloud security goals.

Achieving the AWS Security Competency differentiates Rapid7 as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that offers specialized software designed to help organizations adopt, develop and deploy complex security projects on AWS. To receive the designation, APN partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

Cloud adoption presents numerous benefits, including speed of development and cost savings. However, it also requires organizations to transform their business and assess how to advance to the cloud securely. Rapid7’s flagship vulnerability management product, InsightVM, is designed to address this by providing visibility, security analytics, orchestration, and automation to help organizations prioritize and remediate where there is the greatest risk across their hybrid and cloud environments.

“It’s no longer if, but when, organizations move all or parts of their business to the cloud,” said Lee Weiner, Chief Product Officer at Rapid7. “With that, organizations must change the way they approach security, ensuring their vulnerability management programs evolve as well. To address this, we are leveraging the power of AWS and Rapid7′s vulnerability management capabilities to provide visibility across modern networks, prioritize risk using attacker analytics and contain and mitigate threats.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify consulting and technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
