Rapid7’s Incident Response group is being led by Wade Woolwine, who joined Rapid7 in November of 2014 as Manager of Strategic Services. Previously Woolwine worked as a Senior Manager of Managed Defence at FireEye, which is one of the leading firms in the industry or incident response.
“With the history of Rapid7 in Metapsloit and exploit development, we’re uniquely placed to influence an incident response process,” Woolwine told eWEEK. “So when we go into an organization and look at a breach, we’re taking a library of exploits with us.”
Rapid7 is actually launching two separate, but somewhat related programs as part of its Incident Response services group. One effort is pro-active, while the other is more reactive. The Incident Response Program Development service is the pro-active service that aims to help organization have the right structure in place for an incident detection and response program. Woolwine noted that the Incident Response Program Development service isn’t technology driven but is rather focused on a continuous improvement process.
