Four Questions to Consider Asking Your Security Ratings Partner

BitSight was recently named a Leader in The Forrester New WaveTM: Cybersecurity Risk Rating Solutions, Q1 2021. As the creator and largest vendor by market presence in the category, we were honored to be recognized and to be the only vendor recognized for having differentiated product roadmap and go-to- market strategy.

For the report, Forrester evaluated seven cybersecurity risk rating solutions to appraise their efficacy and ability to address current market needs. Forrester offers the market important questions to consider when evaluating a Security Ratings provider. While we would encourage you to read the full report, this short analysis shares BitSight’s perspectives on these critical issues.

We believe there are four things you should consider when choosing a security rating partner:

  • Is the rating independently verified to accurately reflect risk?
  • What data is included in the rating and how accurate is it?
  • How transparent is the ratings algorithm and the dispute resolution process?
  • How will a ratings provider fit into my ecosystem and how will it continue to evolve?
