If 2020 was the year of adjusting to new ways of working, 2021 is the year of driving efficiency and transparency across all business operations. As organizations depend on more tools across all business units, automation is the key to ensuring operational efficiency. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2025, more than 50% of the G2000 will have a dedicated automation group, up from less than 10% in 2020, which culminates in agility and cost efficiencies. We have this in mind as we partner with the tools customers use to build apps and integrations in the SecurityScorecard Platform.
Last year, SecurityScorecard introduced Rule Builder, enabling IT and security teams to automate key workflows so they can save time and focus on the most critical aspects of their job. Now in the spirit of saving our customers time and driving efficiency, we’re excited to introduce our Jira and Slack apps, expanding the ways customers can use our Rule Builder in our platform.
SecurityScorecard is proud to offer the leading ecosystem for cybersecurity ratings with over 25 integrations with industry solutions across multiple categories — including vendor risk management tools, GRC platforms, IT service management, SIEMs, and more. Our new SecurityScorecard Apps bring customers the ability to build custom workflows from SecurityScorecard into other tools they work in.
Customers experience multiple benefits of using our integrations and apps. Bringing Ratings and Atlas questionnaire data into their existing tools extends the value of their tech stack by saving time through integrated workflows and creating a 360° view of risk. Here are the 3 most common benefits that we see from customers using our Jira and Slack Apps.
The Slack app for SecurityScorecard enables you to work more productively and ensure that your team never misses a change on a Scorecard. This app extends the power of our Rule Builder with the ability to set up notifications in a designated Slack channel based on Scorecard changes and events. When your chosen event is triggered, you will receive a Slack message in your designated channel with more details on the event and a link to SecurityScorecard, enabling easy investigation.
Here are some of the Slack notifications that our customers use:
Security and IT teams who spend time creating and solving tickets in Jira gain immediate benefits with our Jira App. This app gives users the ability to set up automatic ticket creation and assignment in Jira based on Scorecard changes and events. When the designated event is triggered, a Jira ticket will be created, including more details on the event and a link to SecurityScorecard.
Here are examples of some automations that our customers benefit from:
SecurityScorecard’s easy-to-understand A to F security ratings make it easy to collaborate across teams and communicate cybersecurity in a common language. Our Jira and Slack apps help customers enhance cross-team collaboration by meeting teams where they work.
Here are some ways our customers leverage our Apps to enhance cross-team collaboration:
Incorporating automation and creating workflows across your full tech stack is increasingly a priority as cybersecurity and third-party risk management are put under a microscope. On average, security teams deploy 47 different solutions. Yet, one-third of security professionals identify a lack of security tools and non-integration of security tools as major roadblocks. SecurityScorecard empowers teams to work more collaboratively and efficiently by meeting them in the tools they work. Integrating security tools and workflows is key to driving a more productive workforce and reducing the manpower needed to complete key tasks.
