An award-winning and fun organization, Rapid 7 has been a dedicated leader in the vulnerability and IT security industry since 2000. Their mission is to develop simple, innovative solutions for security’s complex challenges. Founders, Alan Matthews, Tas Giakouminakis and Chad Loder were executives of a software company, but even early on they recognized the unique challenges customers face in the IT security industry. Launching their own business (based in Midtown, New York) they fondly named their company after their New York Rapid Transit system commuter train: 7. Rapid 7’s name directly correlates to their dedication to responding to customer’s needs, evolving IT environments and emerging threats, so they can help move them forward.
This year alone Rapid 7 has been awarded the Global Vulnerability Management Market Penetration Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan and the Silver Stevie Award for Best Frontline Customer Service Team (Technology Industries) by Stevie Awards.
