Case Study: TriNet

The Client

TriNet is a cloud-based human resources (HR) solutions provider that enables small and medium-sized organizations (SMB) to focus on their core business without needing to have their own internal HR department.

The Challenge

With 300,000 users and 10,000 clients TriNet needed a simple solution that would continuously monitor the security posture of their third party vendors, of which the overwhelming majority of are in the cloud. The attack surface of organizations have widened in the last several year with the use of more cloud-based solutions, an increase in connected devices and employee-owned devices.

The Solution

TriNet uses SecurityScorecard’s rapid, accurate security rating platform to gain immediate visibility into the risks lurking in third party environments. Whether it is the patching cadence of partners, their Endpoint Security Score, the number of malware infections, or the number of company mentions on hacker chatter forums, SecurityScorecard grades TriNet’s partners across the entire security landscape.

The Results

Trinet now has a more direct way to measure its own security maturity against its vendors and partners—and executives have a window into security risk in a context they can understand. TriNet can better gauge and track real world security risk with all the partners it depends on to perform its business optimally.
