SecurityScorecard today announced that it has more than 1 million companies rated in its platform, giving organizations instantly available, full scorecards, including for small and medium size businesses worldwide -- more quickly and more intelligently than any solution on the market.
Elevated Value for SecurityScorecard Customers Across the Market
Groundbreaking Change, Built on New Turbocharged Architecture
Enabling nearly five times more organizations to be scored than other comparative solutions allow today, SecurityScorecard’s Bluepipe Data Processing Engine, released in September, has enabled SecurityScorecard to break the bounds of traditional hand curation and deliver a dynamic scalable solution that moves at the pace of the internet’s changes to score an increasing swath of companies, at least daily.
“We provide viable up-to-date information, and we do it with architecture that’s built to scale and truly provide continuous monitoring. The logic of hand curation being a more accurate solution goes out the window when you look at the dynamic nature of the internet. The internet evolves, hackers evolve in the tech they use, and anything human-driven is not going to scale to the performance parameters demanded by the market today,” Jasson Casey, CTO of SecurityScorecard.
This methodology trumps any human-driven solution on the market today, as it encompasses 5-10x more companies rated than any other provider in the industry.
“The latest cybersecurity job report predicts a 3.2 million cyber deficit by 2021. Companies cannot rely on human validation as a viable solution to scale in assessing cyber risk across the entire ecosystem, which may include hundreds of thousands of vendors,” said Sam Kassoumeh, Co-Founder and COO of SecurityScorecard. “Through the milestone of reaching 1 million companies rated, SecurityScorecard is doubling down on its ability to provide risk visibility to all types of businesses globally, with contextual insights from the company’s deep historical data set.”
This announcement marks the moment at which organizations can add and score new companies in minutes, not days. Insurance companies, vendor risk managers, and any other evaluator of cybersecurity risk can now, for the first time at this scale, reap the benefits of more company ratings being instantly available, with the knowledge that the scoring is deeply founded in technology focused on scaling dynamically and providing holistic, meaningful insights.

With hackers finding new ways to attack third-parties in hopes of infecting a larger organization, the third-party ecosystem is more fragile than ever before.
