SecurityScorecard Introduces HEID AI, Supercharges Breach Prediction by 80%

Built on the world’s largest risk and threat dataset, HEID AI finds critical cybersecurity issues before adversaries.

SAN FRANCISCO RSA CONFERENCE 2024 – May 6, 2024 – SecurityScorecard today announced that HEID AI is emerging out of beta. Built on the world’s largest risk and threat dataset, SecurityScorecard developed Highly Evolved Intelligence Defense (HEID) AI to unite the entire cybersecurity community and secure the digital ecosystem.

HEID AI delivers an unprecedented 80% increase in breach prediction accuracy with false positives under 1%, setting a new industry standard. In contrast to the rest of the industry, SecurityScorecard developed its breach prediction algorithm by using LLMs to analyze the root cause of 15,000 historical breaches. This innovation builds on SecurityScorecard’s already  industry-leading breach prediction.

Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CEO and Co-Founder, SecurityScorecard, stated: 

“SecurityScorecard was the first-to-market generative AI solution for security ratings, built as an AI-first company, and is used by 70% of the Fortune 500. No one in the industry can match our accuracy, depth of proprietary data, and outcomes.”

Complete security questionnaires in minutes

The challenges of supply chain cyber risk management are evident in the onboarding process of critical vendors: The average Fortune 500 company invests a staggering 2,000 hours annually in manual tasks – primarily filling out and managing security questionnaires. 

Recognizing the necessity for efficiency and accuracy, HEID AI introduces a human-first approach to LLMs, aimed at eliminating redundant manual tasks while improving business outcomes. HEID AI auto-fills security questionnaires within minutes, using previous responses to ensure consistency and accuracy. HEID AI grows more intelligent with each interaction, supporting diverse question types, including multi-select and percentages.

A risk-based approach to threat intelligence, investigation, and response

Over the past decade, SecurityScorecard curated the world’s largest risk and threat intelligence dataset and owns 99% of its data in-house to deliver unparalleled accuracy and speed. The SecurityScorecard platform goes beyond leading threat intelligence point solutions to deliver the future of cyber risk management. 

HEID AI harnesses SecurityScorecard’s extensive risk and threat intelligence dataset curated by world-class threat intelligence experts, which includes:

  • Threat activity monitoring: Tracks 4 billion IPs and domains scanned across 1,500 ports in 45 countries.
  • Detects sensitive data leakages: Monitors 7 billion leaked credentials and Personal Identifiable Information (PII) databases from dark web forums.
  • Advanced vulnerability intelligence: Adds 100 billion vulnerabilities and attributions published weekly, including active exploits.
  • Transparent and trusted security ratings: Combines ten years of crowdsourcing and historical data from real-world incidents for informed decision-making and benchmarking.
  • World’s largest malware DNS sinkhole: Analyzes 2 billion sinkhole malware requests daily, with honeypots in Russia, China, and other strategic locations that generate millions of events per day. 
  • Global scanning: Crawls 20 million websites using full browsers, simulating real users.
  • Scalable intelligence: Utilizes large language models to categorize risks across 100 categories, comprising over 75 million records.

Jason Ferrante, Vice President of Data Science, SecurityScorecard, added: 

“SecurityScorecard is an AI company as much as we are a cybersecurity company. We utilize AI across our entire platform, from data collection to scoring. With our in-house threat intelligence and access to data from all public attack surfaces, we leverage billions of signals to measure and validate security like no other. This is why our breach correlation outperforms the competition.”
