Security Ratings

It all starts with a cybersecurity score.

We then provide you with the tools and intelligence you need to improve the cyberhealth of your entire ecosystem.

SecurityScorecard Ratings offer easy-to-read A-F ratings across ten groups of risk factors including DNS health, IP reputation, web application security, network security, leaked information, hacker chatter, endpoint security, and patching cadence. SecurityScorecard Ratings evaluate an organization’s cybersecurity risk using data-driven, objective, and continuously evolving metrics that provide visibility into any organization’s information security control weaknesses as well as potential vulnerabilities throughout the supply chain ecosystem.

Understand the cyberhealth of your ecosystem across 10 risk factor groups.

  • Network Security

    Network Security

    Examples of network security hacks include exploiting vulnerabilities such as open access points, insecure or misconfigured SSL certificates, or database vulnerabilities and security holes that can stem from the lack of proper security measures.
  • DNS Health

    DNS Health

    The SecurityScorecard platform measures multiple DNS configuration settings, such as OpenResolver configurations as well as the presence of recommended configurations such as DNSSEC, SPF, DKIM, and DMARC.
  • Patching Cadence

    Patching Cadence

    How diligently a company is patching its operating systems, services, applications, software, and hardware in a timely manner.
  • Endpoint Security

    Endpoint Security

    Endpoint security refers to the protection involved regarding an organization’s laptops, desktops, mobile devices, and all employee devices that access that company’s network.
  • IP Reputation

    IP Reputation

    The SecurityScorecard sinkhole system ingests millions of malware signals from commandeered Command and Control (C2) infrastructures from all over the world. The incoming infected IP addresses are then processed and attributed to corporate enterprises through our IP attribution algorithm. The quantity and duration of malware infections are used as the determining factor for these calculations, providing a data point for the overall assessment of an organization’s IP Reputation, along with other assessment techniques.
  • Web Application Security

    Web Application Security

    Examples of vulnerabilities detected include Cross-site Scripting (XSS) or an SQL injection attacks.
  • Cubit Score

    Cubit Score

    The Cubit Score factor is SecurityScorecard’s proprietary threat indicator that measures a collection of critical security and configuration issues related to exposed administrative portals.
  • Hacker Chatter

    Hacker Chatter

    The SecurityScorecard Hacker Chatter factor continuously collects communications from multiple streams of underground chatter, including hard-to-access or private hacker forums. Organizations and IPs that are discussed or targeted are identified.
  • Information Leak

    Information Leak

    SecurityScorecard identifies all sensitive information that is exposed as part of a data breach or leak, keylogger dumps, pastebin dumps, database dumps, and via other information repositories. SecurityScorecard maps the information back to the companies who own the data or associated email accounts that are connected to the leaked information, assessing the likelihood that an organization will succumb to a security incident due to the leaked information.
  • Social Engineering

    Social Engineering

    SecurityScorecard identifies a variety of factors related to social engineering, such as employees using their corporate account information for services, for example, social networks, service accounts, personal finance accounts, and marketing lists that can be exploited. In addition, employee dissatisfaction is monitored through publicly available data.
