Mimecast announces the availability of Mimecast for Rapid7 InsightIDR

Mimecast today announced the availability of Mimecast for Rapid7 InsightIDR. Building on the successful Mimecast for Rapid7 InsightConnect integration, which more than 100 organizations currently leverage, this new integration is engineered to allow joint customers to ingest log data from Mimecast directly into InsightIDR to achieve a more comprehensive view of their security environments. Organizations will be able to detect, respond to, and remediate incidents faster and strengthen cyber resilience as a result.

To stay ahead of advanced threats, it is critical that email security data is communicating with other data sources, such as endpoint devices, internal network traffic, and web activity. Through this API integration, joint customers achieve greater visibility and centralized response, helping to lead to more efficient detection and response. Attacker behaviour is constantly evolving, and unifying security data through integrations like Mimecast for Rapid7 InsightIDR helps organizations stay one step ahead.

“Email holds massive amounts of data and, when leveraged the right way, it can be a huge advantage to an organization’s security defense and response,” said Jules Martin, vice president of business development at Mimecast. “The amount of data needing to be processed can be overwhelming for teams lacking resources. Our Integration with Rapid7 InsightIDR is designed to allow joint customers to tap into their current security investments so they can reap the benefits of a connected security ecosystem. By harnessing the data via an open API, the integration is engineered to log relevant information to create actionable alerts for security teams. The result helps lead to faster response times and stronger cyber resilience.”
