Security teams are able to react quickly to digital criminals, respond to Zero-Day incidents faster, and reduce the risk exposure timeline.
These are some of the factors we use to calculate the overall score:
Discover open access points, insecure or misconfigured SSL certificates, or database vulnerabilities.
Understand how diligently a company is patching its operating systems, services, applications, software, and hardware in a timely manner.
See the quantity and duration of malware infections, along with other factors influence the overall assessment of an organization’s IP Reputation.
Understand the effectiveness of protections in place for laptops, desktops, mobile devices, and all employee devices that access that company’s network.
