“Cyber attacks on our nation’s supply chains, critical infrastructure, and online digital citizen services, are more prevalent than ever and are impacting functions like power, water, transportation and even medical services,” said Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy, co-founder and CEO, SecurityScorecard. “Our partnership with Carahsoft and its resellers will allow public sector customers to use our platform to gain visibility into critical supply chain risks, monitor third-parties’ cybersecurity postures, and reduce the threat of attacks.”
SecurityScorecard helps public sector leaders make informed vendor and cybersecurity prioritization decisions. SecurityScorecard’s real-time visibility of an organization’s threat landscape gives decision-makers unprecedented understanding of threats to the organization and its larger supply chain. Security ratings also provide regulators with unprecedented, instantaneous company-level data for the industries they regulate.
Offered to the public sector through Carahsoft and its reseller partners, the platform includes an intuitive scoring system for many of the security measures required by regulators to help the government assess function and protect public supply chains and critical infrastructure.
“As the public sector’s ecosystem continues to grow, so does the risk of being targeted by cyber attacks,” said Rich Maigue, Sales Director who leads the SecurityScorecard team at Carahsoft. “Partnering with SecurityScorecard provides our resellers and their customers with the visibility and intelligence needed to fortify security measures, reduce cyber risks, and secure the supply chain beyond the traditional perimeter.”
