Rapid7 Named a Strong Performer in Managed Detection and Response Report




March 24, 2021- Rapid7, Inc., a leading provider of security analytics and automation, today announced it has been positioned as a Strong Performer in "The Forrester Wave™: Managed Detection and Response Providers, Q1 2021," a report published by Forrester Research Inc. Rapid7 was among the 15 service providers evaluated, with Forrester evaluating each vendor using 19 criteria in the categories of current offering, strategy, and market presence.


“As a lean security team, it’s impossible for us to stretch our resources across a 24-hour span,” said Brad Smith, cybersecurity and engineering lead at Resimac Group. “Utilizing Rapid7’s MDR services enables us to focus on the goals of the business rather than having to manage and plough through notifications, alerts, and problems found by security tools. We really value the team’s expertise and ability to prioritize particular styles of threats.”


Rapid7's Threat Intelligence team also identified that 96% of all validated incidents include end-user compromise, making it even more difficult to differentiate between the attacker and the employee. As a result, many are turning to managed detection and response services to identify these advanced attacks and help them execute successful security programs.


Rapid7 offers a best-in-class Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service, powered by its market-leading SIEM, InsightIDR, that enables teams of all sizes and experience levels to strengthen their security posture, stay ahead of emerging threats, and stop attackers. Customers gain access to Rapid7’s experts and technology to extend their team with the resources and clear guidance needed to drive security operations and transparency within their organizations.


“Security teams need real collaboration and partnership now more than ever to manage threats and stop attacks within their environment,” said Richard Perkett, senior vice president of detection and response at Rapid7. “We’re thrilled by this recognition from Forrester and believe that it validates our mission to provide our customers with the best possible expertise and direction so that they can focus on advancing their security programs.”
