Vendorly Announces Agreement with BitSight
Global organizations are increasingly facing significant cyber risk management challenges. To help proactively mitigate risk, organizations need automated tools to measure and monitor the security performance of vendors. The BitSight Security Rating Platform generates objective, quantitative measurements on a company’s security performance to produce daily security ratings ranging from 250 to 900. BitSight analyzes externally observable security incidents and practices, and applies sophisticated algorithms to produce a rating. With over 59,000 vendors actively managed on the Vendorly™ platform, the addition of BitSight showcases Vendorly’s commitment to raising the standards of third-party risk management, with a focus on strategic partnerships to help mitigate risk throughout the vendor lifecycle.
