The BitSight Security Ratings platform
BitSight offers the most widely adopted Security Ratings solution in the world, changing the way that companies address cyber risk. BitSight’s Security Ratings offer a data-driven, dynamic measurement of an organization’ s cybersecurity performance. Ratings help organizations monitor and improve cyber hygiene, and offer the external verification security teams need to improve cloud security posture management.
BitSight Security Ratings range from 250 to 900, with larger numbers equating to stronger security posture. Ratings are issued daily and are based on objective, externally verifiable data collected from 120+ sources. This information reveals an organization’s security performance on 23 key risk vectors in four major categories: compromised systems, security diligence, user behavior, and publicly disclosed breaches. Calculated with a proprietary algorithm, BitSight ratings have been proven to correlate to breach – the lower the security rating, the more likely the rated entity will succumb to a data breach.
In addition to an overall view of security posture, BitSight Security Ratings illuminate security performance on specific risk vectors and can identify vulnerabilities in on-premises and cloud infrastructure. With BitSight, security teams get a daily verification of their security posture in the cloud.
BitSight solutions for cloud security posture management
In addition to Security Ratings, the BitSight platform offers several solutions that can improve cloud security posture management.
BitSight Attack Surface Analytics
BitSight provides continuous visibility into digital ecosystems and increasingly complex attack surfaces. BitSight Attack Surface Analytics uncovers risk hidden across digital assets in the cloud, different geographies and subsidiaries, and remote workforces. A centralized dashboard shows the location of all digital assets broken down by cloud provider and business unit, along with the corresponding cyber risk associated with each asset. BitSight also uncovers instances of shadow IT and assesses them for risk so they can be brought into line with corporate security policies.
Executive Reporting with BitSight
BitSight Executive Reports drive more informative and productive conversations about cyber risk with company decision-makers. By making security performance more accessible and easier to understand, BitSight helps security teams communicate risk, identify gaps, and justify investments on security programs. Security teams can leverage more than a dozen readily available reports with cyber security policy examples, or create custom reports on the fly.
BitSight for Third-Party Risk Management
In addition to security performance within an organization, BitSight can expose risk within cloud services and third and fourth-party vendors. BitSight enables security teams to perform cybersecurity risk assessments on vendors, potential vendors, and the cloud services they rely on.
Why monitor cloud security with BitSight?
BitSight was founded in 2011 and today is the world’s leading Security Rating service. Seven of the top 10 largest cyber insurers, 25% of Fortune 500 companies, and 20% of the world’s governments rely on BitSight to manage cyber risk.
BitSight Security Ratings help organizations make faster, more strategic decisions about cybersecurity policy and third-party risk management. By enabling more complete security visibility into cloud assets and evaluating how well the organization’s attack surface is protected from cybersecurity threats, BitSight helps organizations streamline the cloud security posture management process, managing risk more efficiently and effectively.
