Given the global environment of increasing cyber attacks and leaks, gaining a view of the risks presented to your organization is no longer just nice to have, but a must to stay competitive. Investors and the board are questioning executives about how they are supporting the business’s cybersecurity practices and hygiene, creating top-down pressure on security managers to demonstrate how they are performing, and what the current and potential financial risks are to the organization.

Security ratings are a tool your organization can rely on to proactively reduce risk throughout your attack surface, using expansive data-scanning technology to provide an outside-in view of your organization's security posture, along with your third party business ecosystem. Instead of taking a guesswork approach to your cybersecurity controls, security ratings provide a data-backed view of your cyber performance.

By summarizing data in real-time, ratings are a trusted way to make impactful security performance decisions.
