In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

• Lack of comprehensive, in-depth visibility and control of third-party security risk leaves organizations vulnerable to attacks. Unlike other solution providers, Panorays combines automated, dynamic security questionnaires with external attack surface assessments and business context to provide organizations with a rapid, accurate view of supplier and fourth-party cyber risk. The external assessment evaluates a vendor’s attack surface by performing hundreds of tests, such as collecting information on exposed assets or checking the lack of security best practices. In addition, Panorays’ automated, easy-to-customize security questionnaires include only the questions that are relevant for each supplier (in the language they require), and customers can easily track progress.

• Not all risk is the same, but companies have no easy way to contextualize risk according to the business relationship with their third parties. For example, a supplier that brings paper to the office is less of a risk than one that connects to your e-mail systems. Only Panorays rates according to context by considering the business and technology relationship with an organization’s suppliers. That way, you get an accurate picture of risk according to actual business impact, and are able to prioritize efforts correctly to truly control risk.

• In the past year alone, Panorays achieved the following:
1. Over 50,000 suppliers were added through the Panorays platform.
2. 78% of Panorays customers used both external assessments and questionnaires.
3. Panorays customers received responses to security questionnaires in an average of 8 days. Without Panorays, the average was 9 weeks.
4. Average time saved per supplier: 1,296 hours (7.7 weeks)
5. Total time saved with Panorays: 4,082,400 hours (466 years)

Brief Overview

Panorays focuses on tackling the growing problem of third-party cyber risk. Without a comprehensive third-party security risk process, organizations are vulnerable to potential data breaches and associated regulatory fines, lawsuits, loss of reputation and customer trust. For many organizations, however, the process of thoroughly assessing and monitoring all their third parties and checking that they comply with regulations can take a tremendous amount of time and effort. Panorays’ solution addresses these problems by automating, accelerating, and scaling organizations’ vendor security evaluation and risk management process so that companies worldwide can quickly and securely do business together.

Panorays’ unique 360-degree ratings combine automated, dynamic security questionnaires with external attack surface assessments and business context to provide organizations with the most comprehensive view of supplier cyber risk.
