Rapid7 Recognized for Excellence in Customer Service and Innovation

Rapid7, a leading provider of IT security data and analytics software and services, is pleased to announce it was selected as a Reader Trust award winner in the Best Vulnerability Management Solution category at the 2014 SC Awards. Rapid7 was also presented with a Silver Stevie® Award in the Frontline Customer Service Team of the Year – Technology Industries – Computer Software category in the eighth annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

For the SC Award, Rapid7 Nexpose was selected from a group of finalists representing the best the information security industry has to offer. Hundreds of vendors and service providers entered the Reader Trust Award category. Nexpose was selected as the winner by a panel representing a cross-section of SC Magazine readership, which is comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets, including financial services, health care, government, retail, education and other sectors.

The SC Awards, now in its 17th year, is recognized as the most prestigious mark of achievement for information-technology (IT) security professionals and products. The annual awards showcase the best solutions, services and professionals working to fend off the myriad security threats in today’s corporate world.

“After being narrowed down to a select group of finalists, our judges poured over the entries to thoroughly compare each product against its peers,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “Rapid7 Nexpose was selected as the winner for its ability to best meet the needs of its customers.”

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top sales awards, contact center awards, and customer service awards. More than 1,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 129 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges. More than 260 executives around the world participated in the judging process for the 2014 awards, to determine the Finalists and then the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements.

“Entries to the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service have almost doubled over the past few years,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Not only have we seen a dramatic increase in the number of entries; but the judges have also seen a remarkable rise in the quality of the nominations submitted overall. We congratulate all of this year’s Stevie winners for their outstanding work.”

“We’re thrilled to receive these honors,” said Lee Weiner, Senior Vice President of Products and Engineering at Rapid7. “It’s exciting to see that our company-wide commitment to providing innovative solutions for security’s complex challenges has paid off. The SC Magazine award validates all the hard work Rapid7 has put into making Nexpose an awesome product that helps organizations actively manage IT security risk. This, coupled with the Stevie award, underscores the tremendous value we place on helping our customers solve real-world security challenges.”

In addition to the SC Magazine and Stevie Award wins, Rapid7 also received the Vulnerability Management Market Penetration Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan earlier this year. The Frost & Sullivan award recognized Rapid7 as the fastest growing company in the vulnerability management space.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
"My role is working with customers, helping them go through this digital transformation.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
