SecurityScorecard Wins 2016’s Most Valuable Product Award from Computer Technology Review
NEW YORK, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityScorecard, the most accurate cybersecurity rating and continuous monitoring platform, received a coveted Most Valuable Product (MVP) award in the "Security" category for 2016 from Computer Technology Review for ThreatMarket™, a cloud-based vulnerability search engine that collects and correlates terabytes of security-risk indicators from around the world.
Computer Technology Review's MVP awards identify the most innovative cybersecurity solution providers creating front-line technologies to address threats and vulnerabilities.
"In security management and forensics, knowledge is truly power. What used to take weeks or months to research now take seconds or minutes with ThreatMarket™," said Sam Kassoumeh, COO and Co-Founder of SecurityScorecard. "We're proud to receive this award in recognition of our commitment to preventing data breaches and innovations in the security ratings arena."
ThreatMarket™ is a global cybersecurity intelligence solution that combines incident response, threat intelligence, reconnaissance, forensics, and vulnerability tracking into a single platform with critical risk factors not available anywhere else. Its simple user interface enables instant data mining and detection of vulnerabilities for any organization. With ThreatMarket™, a security analyst can globally search for infrastructure vulnerability issues with specific hardware and software products, domains, IP addresses, ports, leaked credentials, malware sources, typos squats, improper server configurations, and much more. ThreatMarket™ supplies the data that drives the SecurityScorecard security ratings product to benchmark companies' security posture to one another.
By surveying every publicly viewable IP address and their endpoints, ThreatMarket™ analyzes the entire internet. It utilizes sensors to crawl CMS's, anonymous posting services, and hacker chatter forums in addition to custom built sinkhole infrastructures that track malware infections across the world and capture related data. An advanced collection and strategically deployed honeypots (intentionally insecure systems created to monitor various types of attacks), add to the massive amount of vulnerability and attack vector information collected. Combined, ThreatMarket™ provides a unique outside-in perspective that non-intrusively uncovers millions of vulnerability data points on every organization across the entire internet.
"SecurityScorecard's ThreatMarket™ data engine - which is able to collect more than 30 million daily security risk signals from the entire Internet - did more than just pique the interest of our editorial panel; it thoroughly impressed us," said Kim Kay, editor-in-chief of Computer Technology Review. "One of the things that sets apart ThreatMarket™ is its ability to yield a notable breadth of critical data points in a totally automated tool."
ThreatMarket™ will be generally available summer 2016. For more information on ThreatMarket™, visit: https://securityscorecard.com/ThreatMarket™/
