SecurityScorecard Recognized on CRN’s 2018 Security 100 List
New York, NY, March 21, 2018 – SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named SecuritySocrecard to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN’s Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.
In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
SecurityScorecard’s ecosystem risk management platform enables security professionals to continuously monitor their vendor’s and business partner’s cyberhealth to identify risks and vulnerabilities that could impact the business. With its easy to understand A-F ratings systems, SecurityScorecard provides instant visibility into the overall security posture of each vendor in your portfolio and gives you the ability drill down into issues and findings. The platform is designed to enable security professionals to collaborate to solve security issues, thereby making the entire ecosystem more secure.
“The core elements of today’s businesses, both large and small, depend upon robust and reliable cybersecurity solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Unprecedented streams of data, the sweeping transition to cloud computing, vast networks of wireless systems, the rapidly growing Internet of Things—all these advances necessitate increasingly complex and adaptive security measures. CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list recognizes top vendors that are meeting this extraordinary demand with the most innovative security technologies on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted.”
“We are honored to be included in this elite group of vendors,” said Bill Hogan, Chief Revenue Officer for SecurityScorecard. “Our solution gives security and risk management professionals unprecedented visibility into risks from third- and fourth- party business relationships. Our platform surfaces vulnerabilities that would have otherwise been missed and enables enterprises to work with their vendors to address cybersecurity issues. No other solution provides this level of detail combined with ease of use. That is a major reason why channel partners are finding tremendous success working with us to take this product to market.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.

Headquartered in the heart of New York City, SecurityScorecard's vision is to create a new language for measuring and communication security risk. The company was founded in late 2013 by Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy and Sam Kassoumeh, two former cybersecurity practitioners who had served, respectively, as Chief Information Security Officer and Head of Security and Compliance. With cloud solutions becoming an increasingly integral part of the security technology stack, Yampolskiy and Kassoumeh recognized the need to address third- and fourth-party risk as well as better understand the security capabilities of their business partners. Since its founding, the company has grown dramatically and now counts hundreds of leading brands as customers. SecurityScorecard is backed by leading venture capital investors including Sequoia Capital, GV, and Nokia Growth Partners among others. For more information, visithttp://www.securityscorecard.c....
