Our Story

Several years ago, I was the CISO at a rapidly growing e-commerce retailer GILT Groupe.I invested budget in a variety of security tools, intrusion detection systems, and traditional vulnerability scanners to protect information within our company, and felt confident I was doing a thorough job protecting the company. But I often wondered if our third party partners and vendors were as diligent in their security processes? How could I know?

The methods available to me to monitor and measure their security were the equivalent of doing inventory with a pencil and paper in the age of RFIDs. One-time penetration tests or paper-based surveys vendors filled out did not do it for me. There had to be a better way.

But I found there wasn’t. And that was the genesis of SecurityScorecard™ grading service. Always-on and easy to use, it gives you unmatched intelligence and insight into the security risk levels of your system and those of your partners on a continuous basis.
So you always know.
