It's not everyday your company gets called "hot", but this week, BitSight was excited to learn we made the cut on NetworkWorld's list of "12 Hot Security Start-ups to Watch."
The article describes those on the list as companies who have seen "perceived security gaps" and have innovated to help solve issues around cloud, mobility and network security.
Here's what author Ellen Messmer had to say about us:
"BitSight Technologies has a simple proposition. It’s not uncommon for companies to want to try and evaluate the IT security of another business before entering into an e-commerce arrangement where networks may be interconnected in some way. BitSight, co-founded in 2011 by CTO Stephen Boyer and COO Nagarjuna Venna, has a security “rating” service to do this, though there are limits on how far it can go at this point. The BitSight approach, says vice president of marketing Sonali Shah, relies on an analysis of Internet traffic by BitSight sensors on the Internet to detect if the company’s IT assets, such as computers, server or network, have been commandeered by threats such as botnets or denial-of-service attacks."
