The Rapid7 employees have a complete and genuine love for their company and products. Every single one of them that I brought up a question to would give me a complete answer or find the person that could give me that answer.

The entire agenda for UNITED 2016 was very well rounded, and all of the topics were extremely relevant to our current security programs today. We would highly recommend that companies send multiple employees to this conference, and then send one employee to each one of the discussion tracks.

Understanding what Rapid7 does so I can utilize more of it for my organization. I also liked networking with other Rapid7 customers to get their feedback and experience on the Rapid7 products.

It was great to be able to benchmark our security program against others in the same industry. Additionally, it was nice to see what problems others in-industry are facing and to get some communication going on how to solve issues we're all facing.


The UNITED agenda will feature four information-rich talk tracks on the following topics:

Detect & Respond

Explore approaches and technologies for monitoring operational performance, detecting suspicious activity, and responding to critical events.

Assess & Remediate

Learn the strategies and techniques you need to measure and manage your network and application security risk, from identifying vulns, to prioritizing remediation and implementing changes.

Phish, Pwn, & Pivot

Learn technical tips and tricks from the experts on how to take a proactive and adversarial approach to protecting your network, systems, and teams from attackers.

Research & Collaborate

Gain insight into Rapid7's bleeding-edge research projects, learn how you can apply them in your own enterprise, and explore the open communities that make our security intelligence truly world class.
