TraceSecurity and Rapid7 Partner to Add Value for Shared Customer Base

Relationship Delivers Seamless Integration between TraceCSO and Nexpose Vulnerability Management Software

Baton Rouge, LA – TraceSecurity, a pioneer in cloud-based IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) management solutions, and Rapid7, a leading provider of security analytics software and services, today announced an integration partnership that teams the market-leading strengths of each company and enables mutual customers to leverage Rapid7's vulnerability management data when deploying their information security and compliance programs using TraceSecurity's TraceCSO.

"Vulnerability management is core to an organization's information security and compliance practice," said Garrett Bekker, senior security analyst for 451 Research. "While the identification, classification, remediation, and mitigation of vulnerabilities is itself important, the ability to leverage this information across other critical information security functions, such as risk assessments and IT audits, can help provide a more holistic view of an organization's risk and compliance profile."

"Seamless integration of Nexpose, the 2014 SC award winner for Best Vulnerability Management Solution, into TraceCSO allows the TraceCSO customer base to best leverage their existing technology investment," said Ryan Castle, VP of technology for TraceSecurity. "This partnership with Rapid7 demonstrates the value of having all of the moving parts of an information security and compliance program working together to provide a single view of an organization's risk and compliance profile."

"Vulnerability management is a critical part of understanding your security posture. For a more complete picture, vulnerability data should sit within the context of a holistic information security program," said Buck Watia, senior director of business development at Rapid7. "This integration helps us support our customers. It enables Nexpose customers to import scan results directly into TraceSecurity's IT GRC solution and then leverage them as part of their overall information security program."

TraceCSO allows organizations of any size, industry or security skill set to implement and internally manage a comprehensive information security and compliance program.  TraceCSO identifies and prioritizes risk to an organization's information – including network vulnerabilities – and identifies, implements and audits security controls.  To help organizations stay current with the latest regulatory mandates specific to their industry, TraceCSO leverages a global database of hundreds of authorities and more than 75,000 regulations and citations.

While TraceCSO is equipped with its own vulnerability management capabilities, this partnership enables Nexpose customers to leverage TraceCSO's centralized interface and integrate those scan results with other critical areas of the organization's information security and compliance program, such as risk, vendor or third party, audit, training and compliance management.
