Rapid7 InsightIDR product overview
Rapid7 InsightIDR is a security center for incident detection and response, authentication monitoring, and endpoint visibility. As part of Rapid7’s Insight Platform, it identifies unauthorized access from external and internal threats and highlights suspicious activity so IT teams don’t have to weed through thousands of data streams.
InsightIDR unifies SIEM, UEBA, ABA, and EDR capabilities with the organization’s existing network and security stack to provide real-time visibility and incident detection across the network and cloud services. The solution eliminates writing and tuning rules, retracing user activity, and managing clusters. It shows the answers hidden in user activity, logs, and endpoints. It also enables organizations to share data between security, IT, and DevOps teams.
The platform collects data from across the environment, empowering teams to manage vulnerabilities, monitor for malicious behavior, investigate and shut down attacks, and automate operations.
Pros of Rapid7 InsightIDR
- InsightIDR delivers contextualized data for unified visibility across multiple assets, allowing users to understand risk, no matter the complexity of the footprint.
- The solution’s detections help businesses spot critical threats early in the attack chain. Additionally, its guided, one-click automation extinguishes threats before attackers can succeed.
Cons of Rapid7 InsightIDR
- According to users, the platform’s reporting feature needs improvement.
Breakdown of core features
Security information and event management (SIEM)
Users can analyze the most complex data and find insights faster with InsightIDR’s cloud-native data lake, diverse log collection capabilities, custom log parsing, and flexible search and reporting. The software correlates numerous daily events directly to the users and assets behind them. It highlights risks across the organization and prioritizes where to search.
Endpoint detection and response (EDR)
InsightIDR takes a detection-first approach that drives reliable endpoint threat detection and finds attacks early. The platform captures critical data and adds relevant context to alerts. Security teams have endpoint coverage they can trust and act on.
Network traffic analysis (NTA)
The platform’s Network Sensor unlocks critical network visibility and detection coverage alongside data. With the lightweight sensor in place, users can recognize suspicious activity on the network. InsightIDR’s curated intrusion detection system (IDS) zeros in on real threats. For strong forensics and investigations, users can access additional network metadata to understand the full scope of activity.
User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA)
InsightIDR continuously baselines normal user activity beyond defined indicators of compromise. Its correlated user data offers rich context for other attacker alerts to accelerate investigations and response. The UEBA feature connects activity across the network to specific users and continuously baselines healthy user activity in the organization to discover anomalies quickly.
