A new press release reports, “Rapid7, Inc., a leading provider of analytics solutions for security and IT operations, today announced the evolution of the Rapid7 Insight platform with the availability of two new solutions: InsightVM, for vulnerability management, and InsightAppSec, for application security testing. Processing more than 50 billion events and monitoring millions of assets daily, the Insight platform is the first to unify solutions for vulnerability management, user behavior analytics (UBA), SIEM, IT log analytics, and application security. The cloud-based platform makes it possible for security and IT professionals to share data, research findings, and analytic-processing resources. The Rapid7 Insight platform significantly reduces the overall total cost of ownership inherent with on-premise, analytics-driven solutions, and automatically scales to meet the needs of users, helping to solve challenges presented by rapid data growth for both security and IT.”

The release goes on, “Rapid7’s Insight platform is built on nearly two decades of active research, a constantly expanding vulnerability and exploit database, Rapid7’s Metasploit, and learnings from thousands of penetration tests and the Company’s threat hunting team. This extensive, historical knowledge, combined with advanced analytics – including user behavior and exposure analytics, deception technologies, threat modeling, intelligence feeds, and machine learning – is then applied to customer data from network scans, logs, and endpoints. The Rapid7 Insight platform transforms this user data into answers by delivering actionable guidance for vulnerability management, incident detection, application security, and IT optimization.”
