BitSight Achieves "Cool Vendor" Status in Gartner Report

Melissa Stevens | May 13, 2015

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activities here at BitSight! Between attending and speaking at RSA, participating in the latest Verizon DBIR report, preparing for our session at FS-ISAC, announcing our new partnership with AIG, and being featured as a vendor risk management solution in the Wall Street Journal, we were happy to see the second quarter off to such an exciting start. And then we got even more good news!

Today, BitSight is pleased to announce that we've been named a "Cool Vendor" in Gartner's latest Vendor Management Report. This report "highlights vendors that can potentially arm vendor management leaders with much-needed tools and services to support vendor risk management and improve performance visibility."

On why BitSight was chosen, analyst Gayla Sullivan said, "BitSight Technologies has rapidly emerged as the “standard” in vendor security ratings...BitSight is creating a new space in vendor risk management. The company is well on its way to being as widely recognized as a Moody’s or S&P ratings for the information security space." 

Since 2011, BitSight has been focused on generating the highest quality security ratings to enable risk managers to make better-informed decisions and mitigate security risks across their ecosystem more effectively and efficiently. Receiving this acknowledgement from Gartner is a tremendous honor for our team and is just another validation that we're making progress in our mission to transform the way companies evaluate risk and security performance.
