Is Rapid7 InsightIDR the right choice to be used in SOC?


Is Rapid7 InsightIDR an efficient solution (to be used in SOC as an analysis tool) in comparison with other SIEM products, such as IBM QRadar, Splunk, and LogRhythm NextGen SIEM?

No, Navin, 

The use of SIEM products will focus a lot broader on managing all sources of target systems log integration and correlation, while InsightIDR will work best with existing Rapid7 solutions. 

Alternatively, several SIEM would have a plugin to integrate VA result into the repository, providing assets classification and prioritization based on the vulnerability result from Rapid7.

Of course. 

If you look at Gartner's 2020 Magic Quadrant for SIEM solutions, you will see that Rapid 7 is even ahead of LogRhythm. 

If you look at the 2021 Quadrant, you can see that some players, while are losing their ground in the leaders' Quadrant (like LogRhythm), Rapid 7 has maintained a position in the leaders' quadrant. 

Feel free to reach out to me for any support to help get you moving on this decision.
