Rapid7 Expands Relationship with AWS


Rapid7 has announced that InsightIDR integrates with AWS AppFabric, announced by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

As organisations continue to use an increasing number of software as a service (SaaS) applications in their network infrastructure, security professionals must secure these apps with limited visibility into their usage data.

This lack of visibility, primarily due to disparate methods of generating and storing data as well as inconsistent data formats, creates blind spots in security teams’ monitoring capabilities and limits their ability to detect malicious behaviour.

“Adoption of SaaS applications is an ongoing process that comes with its own set of security challenges, but lack of visibility shouldn’t be one of them,” said Jeremiah Dewey, senior vice president, managed services and detection & response technology, Rapid7. InsightIDR’s immediate support of AWS AppFabric gives Rapid7 customers a clear picture of the activity among their new and existing SaaS apps.”

AWS AppFabric leverages the Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OCSF) to normalise the data it ingests.

Dewey stated, “Rapid7 is a founding member of the OCSF standard and already supports the ingestion of AWS CloudTrail logs in the OCSF format. Rapid7 is excited to see the continued adoption of OCSF and strongly believes that continued adoption of the standard will result in a stronger security posture for individual organisations and the global business community as a whole.”
