As your digital footprint expands, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain complete security visibility. From cloud storage instances to on-premise hardware to remote/home offices, your attack surface is growing larger and more complex by the day. Even with a well-designed security tech stack, you might not have a clear view of everything you need to see. To get a clear picture of your ecosystem and where cyber risk is concentrated, you need solutions that can deliver greater visibility to identify the gaps in your security programs and controls.
BitSight for Security Performance Management provides superior security visibility so you can understand the true size of your attack surface and maximize the effectiveness of your efforts to protect it. Through continuous monitoring, broad measurement, and detailed cybersecurity planning and forecasting, BitSight lets you make data-driven decisions on how to better manage your resources and protect your organization.
Your IT environment and expanding digital footprint present a number of critical challenges to security visibility.
BitSight for Security Performance Management shines a light on the gaps in security visibility. From giving critical context to SIEM to spotting control gaps in firewalls and identifying risky remote office networks, BitSight delivers greater visibility into your attack surface so you can take action to remediate issues.
BitSight for Security Performance Management provides a continuous, risk-based, outcome-driven approach to cybersecurity. By measuring, monitoring, and managing program performance, BitSight helps to drive accountability for security outcomes while enabling security leaders to make data-driven decisions on how to better manage resources and cybersecurity budgets.
BitSight solutions are based on BitSight Security Ratings, a dynamic and data-driven measurement of an organization’s cybersecurity performance. BitSight’s daily ratings range from 250 to 900 – higher ratings indicate more effective security practices – and are derived from objective, verifiable information. BitSight ratings enhance security visibility by measuring security performance on a wide range of data points related to compromised systems, security diligence, user behavior, and publicly disclosed data breaches.
With BitSight for Security Performance Management, security leaders and risk managers can:

Security visibility is the capability to clearly see all aspects of an organization’s digital footprint as well as the risks and vulnerabilities within it. Security visibility also includes the ability to view security controls and the gaps created by inadequate controls.
To improve security visibility, an organization requires solutions that can identify its entire digital footprint. This may include digital assets and activities that lie outside the firewall, shadow IT, cloud services, remote offices, and assets that may not be on current inventory. Additionally, security visibility solutions must provide tools for identifying vulnerabilities, risks, and threats within the organization’s digital ecosystem.
Security posture describes an organization’s approach to cybersecurity and the controls and practices it has adopted to address cyber risk and manage threats. Security posture is based on the strategies, controls, defenses, and security reporting that enable an organization to successfully prevent or recover from cyberattacks.
