Rapid7 Debuts Incident Response Technology

A key metric across myriad security reports in any given year is the time it takes for an organization to contain a breach. Security vendor Rapid7 today launched a new product called InsightIDR (incident detection and response) that aims to help organizations quickly identify potential breaches and then remediate them.

The InsightIDR platform makes use of technology gained in Rapid7's $68 million acquisition of data search vendor Logentries in October 2015. With Logentries, Rapid7 gained technology to quickly search and understand data.

"We look at behaviors that we know attackers have, as well as heuristical models, based on anomalies in assets," Lee Weiner, senior vice president, products and engineering at Rapid7, told eWEEK. "We also allow organizations to set traps and we ship InsightIDR with honeypots that are easy to deploy.”
