Rapid7 named Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave

Rapid7 announced that it is positioned as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave: Cloud Workload Security, Q1 2022, published by Forrester Research, Inc. Most notably, the report shows Rapid7 as the top-ranked solution in the Current Offering category.

In this Forrester evaluation, Rapid7 received the highest possible scores in the criteria of cloud security posture management (CSPM), Infrastructure as Code (IaC) security, orchestration platform, and runtime, which Rapid7 believes emphasizes the current offering’s overall strength and ease of use. In the Strategy category of the report, Rapid7 also received the highest possible scores in the cloud workload protection (CWP) plans and container protection plans criteria.

“We believe Forrester’s recognition of Rapid7 highlights our combination of market-leading CSPM, container protection, and shift-left capabilities alongside a highly differentiated CWP strategy,” said Lee Weiner, SVP, Cloud Security and Chief Innovation Officer at Rapid7. “In our opinion, these stand-out capabilities are what make Rapid7 a strong performer and enable our customers to accelerate their business strategies through secure adoption of cloud technologies.”

Enterprises are increasingly using the cloud to drive innovation and digital transformation. However, the scale, complexity, and rate of change in cloud environments, combined with a lack of unified visibility into the various cloud services being used, often forces security teams to choose between slowing the pace of innovation or taking on massive amounts of unmanaged risk.
