• Rapid7 earns spot on UK Government Digital Marketplace

        • Rapid7, Inc. has announced that its cloud delivered security solutions have been added to the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) registry, and are now accessible to public sector organisations.

          According to the Information Commissioner's Office Data Security Incidents Trends, healthcare suffers more data breaches than any other sector in the UK, with 184 breaches reported in the final quarter of 2015 alone. The second most breached sector was local government, which reported 43 breaches in the same quarter.

          CCS’s G-Cloud framework is designed to help ease procurement with the use of cloud computing for all sections and departments of the UK government and includes a series of framework agreements with a wide range of suppliers. Its procurement arrangements can be used by central government departments and organisations across the public sector including local government, health, education, not-for-profit and devolved administrations.

          Rob Attree, EMEA Director of Sales at Rapid7 said, “we are thrilled that eight of our products and services have been accepted into the G-Cloud framework, a fully EU compliant system. This arrangement will provide government and public sector bodies with direct access to Rapid7’s leading security and IT products and services to enable them to achieve their cybersecurity goals.”

          Rapid7 solutions are designed to accelerate insight into security and IT operations, giving customers live information around vulnerabilities and user behaviours. The Company focuses on giving IT and security professionals the power to act at the moment of impact to detect, deter, and investigate threats and incidents. Rapid7 now provides a range of SaaS solutions and specialist security services to the UK public sector, including InsightIDR, Managed Web Application Security, Managed Vulnerability Management, Managed Detection and Response (Analytic Response), Cyber Security Maturity Assessment, CREST-certified Penetration Testing, and Security Awareness Training.
