Rapid7 Launches Analytic Response for Advanced Threat Detection

New Managed Service Combines the Power of Threat Insight and Sophisticated Analytics to Detect and Respond to Most Critical Threats

BOSTON, Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ:RPD), a leading provider of security data and analytics solutions, today announced it has launched Rapid7 Analytic Response, a new, fully managed service that gives customers continuous threat detection by identifying known threats, certain unknown threats, and intruder movement from the endpoint to the cloud. The service part of Rapid7's Incident Detection and Response offerings combines threat insight with sophisticated user and attacker behavior analytics and is monitored and managed by Rapid7's world-class security analysts, with experience in hunting for dynamic threats and containing incidents to protect organizations. When a breach is identified with Analytic Response services, Rapid7 analysts pivot to incident response, providing security teams with detailed, easy-to-follow remediation steps tailored to the customer's environment.

"Security teams know they can't rely exclusively on preventative technologies to protect their IT environments, but continuous detection and near real-time incident response is outside the reach of most internal teams," said Nicholas J. Percoco, vice president of Global Services at Rapid7. "Our Analytic Response service and Incident Response team make mature incident detection and response accessible to nearly any company. We can help detect an attack across assets and act faster when a threat is validated and identified. We're positioned to help security teams reduce the time it takes to recognize and respond to an attacker from months to days or even hours."

As an extension of an organization's existing information security program, Analytic Response helps customers identify and respond to threats more accurately, efficiently, and cost effectively. When Rapid7's analysts detect an intrusion, they investigate the attacker's actions to determine what assets may have been compromised and provide detailed remediation steps tailored to each environment. Analytic Response helps validate each threat, meaning that customers no longer need to spend hours investigating numerous false alerts and can respond more confidently.

Analytic Response provides more comprehensive threat detection and response capabilities across the entire IT environment – on premise, mobile, and cloud. In addition to user behavior analytics, attacker analytics, and threat insight feeds, the service also integrates feeds from existing security infrastructure, giving Analytic Response even deeper visibility into dynamic threats across a customer's IT environment.

"The Analytic Response and Incident Response team at Rapid7 has an average of 15 years of experience in hunting for dynamic threats and has addressed, investigated, and remediated some of the world's most infamous breaches," said Wade Woolwine, manager of Incident Response and Analytic Response, Global Services at Rapid7. "We're providing a world-class, fully managed service, with a team and technology that can significantly help our customers by detecting most critical threats and having the resources in place to respond more quickly."

Based in the Washington, D.C. area, the Analytic Response team is led by Woolwine, who also manages Rapid7's Incident Response Services. The Rapid7 Security Operations Center (SOC) is state of the art, with multi-factor access control, 24/7 physical security monitoring, a dedicated on-site data center, and custom-built, proprietary technology.
