"SecurityScorecard’s vision is to make the world a safer place by helping organizations having a continuous 360-degree outside-in view of their cybersecurity posture.”

These awards follow a record-breaking 2019 for SecurityScorecard, which saw the company doubling its customer base and increasing international sales by 250% YoY. The $50 million series D round led by Riverwood Capital has helped solidify SecurityScorecard’s global expansion into Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa due to the company’s breadth of data and robust API integrations.

SecurityScorecard also recently unveiled significant updates to Atlas, the industry’s leading questionnaire and evidence exchange platform. The unique combination of SecurityScorecard Ratings paired with SecurityScorecard Atlas provides organizations with the transformational ability to get deeper risk insights faster. Atlas’ Smart Mapping Engine automatically aligns questionnaire responses with SecurityScorecard Ratings, giving organizations an instant 360° view of any vendor's cybersecurity risk and enabling them to validate the accuracy of responses. This streamlines the manual and tedious security questionnaire due diligence process.
