Digital risk protection (DRP) solutions can be powerful tools for addressing cyber risk and ensuring cybersecurity protection. Digital risk protection tools use threat intelligence to identify vulnerabilities such as open ports, stolen credentials, and other security issues. Yet, because DRP solutions don’t always focus on long-term performance management, they can be inadequate at helping organizations to improve their overall security posture.
BitSight for Security Performance Management offers tools that can complement other digital risk protection solutions. By helping security leaders better understand performance over time, BitSight makes it easier to allocate limited resources to the areas of greatest need, take steps to improve overall security posture, and achieve measurable risk reduction.
Digital risk protection is a set of solutions and services that defend an organization from threats to its digital footprint and attack surface. Digital risk protection extends from the mitigation of potential phishing attempts to dark web capabilities and everything in between.
Digital risk protection tools enable security analysts and threat researchers to:
The challenge of digital risk protection solutions is that these tools for reducing exposure and driving remediation don’t focus on the strategic end of the security spectrum. Digital risk protection tools tend to focus on short-term exposure mitigation rather than proactive, long-term performance management context, developing cybersecurity standards, and implementing cybersecurity best practices.
BitSight offers a solution that can complement or replace traditional digital risk protection tools. BitSight for Security Performance Management offers a more comprehensive approach to managing risk. With BitSight, security leaders can better track their performance over time, determine how to best allocate limited resources, and make risk-based decisions about information security requirements.
BitSight for Security Performance Management uses BitSight Security Ratings to provide the additional context and visibility security leaders need to make more informed decisions. With BitSight, organizations can:
