New York, NY - April 05, 2019 – SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings, today released a new commissioned Forrester Consulting study quantifying the Total Economic Impact and benefits of the SecurityScorecard security ratings platform. The study found that SecurityScorecard allows risk professionals to communicate security posture to regulators, C-suites, and board members in a manner that is easily digestible and one that creates a security-centric organization.
By using its research to create a composite organization representative of the four customers interviewed, Forrester calculated both the quantifiable and unquantifiable benefits from using the SecurityScorecard security ratings platform. The study shows that a composite of these interviewed organizations experienced benefits of $7.8 million over three years versus costs of $1.8 million, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $6.0 million and an ROI of 325%.
“From self-assessment to vendor risk management to M&A, organizations around the world are realizing the very real cost and resource saving benefits of a comprehensive security ratings platform to measure security posture on a continuous basis,” said Sam Kassoumeh, Co-Founder & COO, SecurityScorecard. “The validation of the ROI of the platform is not new to our existing global customer-base, who rely on SecurityScorecard to not only keep a pulse on risk but communicate security posture throughout the entire organization. As we engage new prospects, we now have impressive metrics, including 325% ROI to cite in terms of cost-benefit and overall impact on the business.”
