Foundstone Engineering Head Joins Rapid7

Rapid7 announced that Foundstone's director of engineering, Christopher Moore, has joined the company as the new vice president of engineering

BOSTON -- Rapid7, provider of the award-winning NeXpose enterprise vulnerability management solution, today announced that Foundstone’s director of engineering, Christopher Moore, has joined the company as the new vice president of engineering. A leading talent in the vulnerability assessment (VA) industry, Mr. Moore will be instrumental in developing Rapid7’s engineering team and creating more innovative techniques and methodologies to further its strong technical lead in the VA market.

As director of engineering at McAfee/Foundstone since 2001, Moore grew the Foundstone risk management development team from startup to a successful sale to McAfee and designed and developed the Foundstone vulnerability assessment product. His career spans 22 years in product development, including 15 years managing highly productive and motivated product groups at several leading technology companies.

“As the traditional VC-backed companies find it tough getting traction in this market and thus alter their focus, Rapid7 will gain an advantage by luring their core vulnerability assessment talent and customers” said Alan Matthews, president of Rapid7 LLC. “Chris is a gifted software architect with proven knowledge and expertise in evolving vulnerability assessment solutions, as well as broad experience building and leading strong, dynamic engineering organizations that drive product enhancements and provide first-class customer support. His contributions will be extremely valuable as we continue to enhance NeXpose to cover more systems and vulnerabilities, and increase our quality assurance and product planning to meet new customer demands.”
