New Capabilities Enable Security Teams to Prescriptively Improve Cyber Health Through Issue Remediation Roadmap
NEW YORK and LONDON, Sept. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings, announced today the general availability of Score Planner™ and Scorecard Event Log™. Both solutions, released to customers on September 3rd, build upon SecurityScorecard's leading risk analytics capabilities and are designed to help enterprises develop a clear path to improve and report on their cybersecurity posture.
- Score Planner enables companies to run interactive "what if" sessions to determine the most effective remediation paths, i.e. how much their scores will improve if certain issues are remediated.
- Scorecard Event Log enables transparency around score changes by showing a clear record of what has impacted the score in the past. Because it tracks issue-level detail, Scorecard Event Log enhances the platform's compliance mapping and audit capabilities.
"Legacy security ratings vendors don't have the automation capabilities that are critical for security professionals to adequately gauge the cyber health of their ecosystem," said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, co-founder & CEO of SecurityScorecard. "With Score Planner and Scorecard Event Log companies can now easily control their score improvements and provide transparent, prescriptive, and actionable advice to their vendor and partner communities. The competition is nowhere close to this."
With this release, SecurityScorecard also bolstered its intelligence and automation capabilities, making it possible for enterprise security and risk management professionals to instantly understand the security posture of any organization in a matter of minutes.
"We are seeing more and more customers abandon their legacy security ratings provider due to lack of responsiveness both in the remediation and resolution process, heavy-handed sales tactics, and a lack of innovation," said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, co-founder & CEO of SecurityScorecard. "We have built a friction-free process to help our customers and their business partners improve their cybersecurity posture. That includes providing free access to any company for their own scorecard, access to a live human to work through any remediation and resolution issues, and releasing new, innovative, and impactful capabilities that generate a significant return on security investment."
