LogRhythm and Rapid7 announced API-level integrations of the LogRhythm SIEM 2.0 platform with both the Rapid7 Nexpose vulnerability management product and the Rapid7 Metasploit Pro penetration testing solution.

By integrating LogRhythm’s big data security analytics platform with Rapid7’s award-winning unified risk assessment capabilities, the companies together offer common customers real-time cyber threat protection through up-to-date situational awareness and enterprise security intelligence.

LogRhythm and Rapid7 customers benefit from greater visibility and enhanced threat detection across their IT networks by correlating comprehensive vulnerability data and focused penetration testing data from Rapid7 with other enterprise machine data using LogRhythm’s multidimensional behavioral analytics capabilities.

The integration also enables joint customers to identify security threats and exposures associated with malware and advanced persistent threats and to enhance risk-based prioritization of threats based on the most up-to-date vulnerability data. LogRhythm also enables customers to launch targeted Rapid7 vulnerability scans of their environments from within the LogRhythm console using LogRhythm’s SmartResponse capability.

“Organizations need greater visibility into the information security exposures that leave their most critical assets vulnerable to active threats,” said Lee Weiner, senior VP of products & engineering at Rapid7. “Our integration with LogRhythm enables accurate and advanced correlation and prioritization of security incidents. Leveraging Rapid7’s vulnerability management and penetration testing capabilities reduces overall security and business risk for our customers.”

Rapid7 today serves more than 2,400 customers in more than 65 countries and LogRhythm currently has more than 1,500 customers worldwide.
