Rapid7 acquires NetFort

Rapid7 has acquired NetFort, a company that provides end-to-end network traffic visibility and analytics across cloud, virtual and physical networks. Rapid7 plans to bring NetFort’s network monitoring, visibility and analytics capabilities into its Insight cloud to help customers securely advance.

Rapid7's Insight cloud delivers a unique combination of network visibility, security analytics, orchestration and automation used by organizations to manage risk, detect and stop attacks, and orchestrate security operations across their modern networks. The Insight cloud processes billions of events and monitors millions of assets daily, collecting and analyzing data from the endpoint to the cloud.

Bringing NetFort’s network monitoring, traffic visibility and analytics capabilities into the Insight cloud will allow Rapid7 to consolidate even more data and analytics into a single platform for security and IT professionals. This will improve their ability to detect attacks, investigate incidents and gain increased visibility into devices that pose a risk to organizations.

“We were immediately impressed by NetFort’s technology and the deep network protocol expertise inherent across the team,” said Lee Weiner, Chief Product Officer at Rapid7. “By bringing NetFort’s network data and analytics to our own platform, we enhance security analysts’ capability to unearth risk, detect attacks, and investigate incidents more effectively.”

“We are delighted to join Rapid7 and believe this is a testament to the capabilities of our people and our technology,” said John Brosnan, Chief Executive Officer at NetFort. “Rapid7 will help us apply our network data insights across their cloud-based platform to improve the security posture of our customers.”
