Rapid7 Integration Makes Forward Networks the Only Digital Twin that Provides End-to-End Security Posture Visibility

by Chiara Regale

There is no shortage of alerts concerning security vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, the deluge of data available is overwhelming and not specific enough to be actionable. We don’t think that’s very helpful, so we’ve integrated our platform with Rapid7 InsightVM to ensure that our customers have full visibility into their security posture, including endpoints, and that they know how to prioritize remediation.

The Forward Enterprise platform already collects detailed topology, configuration, and state information across the on-premises network. This information and our mathematical model is used to create a digital twin of the network capable of determining all possible traffic paths. Combining this data with the end-point security visibility and analytics of Rapid7 provides SecOps teams unprecedented visibility into their security posture and helps them prioritize vulnerability remediation with mathematical certainty: SecOps teams are now able to identify within seconds which end-host impacted by critical vulnerabilities can be accessed from the internet and which compromised end-hosts can access internal critical infrastructure.

Given the ever-worsening security talent shortage, SecOps teams cannot afford to waste a single second. There are many tools that evaluate device vulnerabilities, but without the knowledge of how that device is connected to the network, security teams only have a limited view of potential exposure. Often, they choose to focus on keeping devices up to date no matter what vulnerabilities are detected, or they focus on vulnerabilities without considering the exposure of individual systems and devices. With the Rapid7 integration, Forward Networks is the only company that can show an organization’s actual risk including on-premises, multi-cloud, and SD-WAN in an actionable single screen. This type of data presentation helps teams focus on the work that will most impact the network.

The Rapid7 integration is part of Forward Networks’ ongoing commitment to support security professionals with actionable data, so less time is spent reacting, and more time is spent enhancing the security posture.

The Rapid7 integration is included in standard Forward Enterprise licensing at no additional cost. Learn more about the security capabilities of Forward Enterprise at: www.forwardnetworks.com/security
