SecurityScorecard

OVERVIEW

SecurityScorecard is the global leader in cybersecurity ratings and the only service with over 1.5 million companies continuously rated. SecurityScorecard Ratings offer easy-to-understand A-F ratings across ten key risk factor groups including DNS Health, IP Reputation, Application Security, Network Security, Information Leak, Hacker Chatter, Endpoint Security, and Patching Cadence. SecurityScorecard evaluates an organization’s cybersecurity posture using data-driven, objective, and continuously updated metrics. Ratings provide visibility into any organization’s information security program outcomes as well as potential vulnerabilities throughout the supply chain ecosystem.

Founded in 2013 by security and risk experts Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy and Sam Kassoumeh, SecurityScorecard’s patented rating technology is used by over 1,000 organizations for enterprise cyber risk management, third-party risk management, board reporting and cyber insurance underwriting—making all organizations more resilient by allowing them to easily find and fix cybersecurity risks across their externally facing digital footprint.
