BOSTON, April 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ: RPD), a leading provider of security analytics and automation, today announced it has been recognized as a Visionary by Gartner for the second consecutive year in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing.
Modern application security is becoming more complex and challenging due to remote and distributed DevOps environments. Today, application security requires strong cross-functional collaboration between security, software development, and operations teams, as well as the ability to quickly scale and provide timely insights into the current state of activities.
“There is a growing desire for an application security portfolio that seamlessly facilitates the collaboration and visibility required to protect modern application environments,” said Cindy Stanton, senior vice president, vulnerability risk management at Rapid7. “At Rapid7, our goal is to deliver innovative experiences that keep businesses secure, and we’re honored to once again be recognized by Gartner for our completeness of vision and ability to execute.”
Rapid7’s best-in-class application security portfolio integrates with its broader security operations platform to seamlessly generate application security insights for key stakeholders across the software delivery lifecycle (SDLC) in order to quickly remediate vulnerabilities and reduce risk. This provides a holistic view into infrastructures – both cloud and traditional, as well as applications and APIs.
Rapid7 is well known for its expanding portfolio of solutions that deliver on modern application security requirements. This portfolio includes application monitoring and protection capabilities through its tCell RASP and Next Generation WAF services as well as Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) scanning, workload protection and cloud security posture management.
