Rapid7 Buys Security Orchestration and Automation Firm Komand

Rapid7 has acquired Komand with plans to integrate its orchestration and automation technology into the Insights platform.

Rapid7 has acquired Komand, a security orchestration and automation company, to address the need for automation as security threats increase and environments become more complex, the organization reported today.

Komand's technology will be integrated into the Rapid7 Insight platform, which will be expanded to orchestrate and automate across security and IT operations. This is intended to help security teams struggling with resources to automatically detect and respond to risks with fewer people.

Some sample use cases for the automation and orchestration tech include malware investigation and containment, chat operations for addressing routine questions, and risk remediation and patching.

"The complexity of today’s security and IT ecosystems have put security and IT operations teams at a significant disadvantage when they need to respond quickly," said Lee Weiner, chief product officer at Rapid7, in a statement. "By developing contextualized automation technology, we’ll be able to cut back the time it takes to respond to an incident—when minutes can mean the difference between a minor issue and significant compromise or loss."

Rapid7's Evolution
I'm curious how this will affect the evolution of Rapid7.  From the beginning I liked this team because of their hands-on and aggressive work ethic.  Over time we've seen a more formal and systematic process emerging but I have a hard time picturing Komand in the Rapid7 wheelhouse.  Will be interesting to watch unfold.  Deral Heiland is one of my favorite industry speakers and Rapid7 is definitely an industry moving.  They don't do anything without a solid purpose so congrats on the acquisition.
