For the last five years, BitSight Security Ratings have been helping companies gain insight into the efficacy of their security programs, as well as the security performance of third and fourth party vendors. Today, the BitSight Security Rating platform provides a year’s worth of data on all companies to paint a comprehensive picture of a company’s security posture over time.
As adoption of Security Rating Services has rapidly increased, many customers have tied their BitSight Security Rating to broader business goals and initiatives. With senior leadership more involved in security and risk programs than ever before, companies began to dig into their ratings and identify areas for improvement. Customers frequently wondered what their rating would be if they took specific actions within a certain time frame, and which would be the most optimal path to pursue.
