In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
•The company takes a fundamentally different approach to cyber security, recognizing that nearly 75 percent of breaches stem from third party vendors, and so any successful monitoring platform needs to include these entities.
•The company employs “white hat” hackers to offer a non-intrusive outside in perspective that provides companies across the world a unique solution that continuously monitors the vulnerabilities and security posture of thousands of vendors simultaneously.
•Periodically, SecurityScorecard employees are given a “FedEX Day” and the chance to work on anything they like and deliver it within 24-48 hours. This encourages innovation and "outside the box" thinking.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
SecurityScorecard offers an exclusive security rating platform able to determine the security risk of any organization on the internet. Its proprietary SaaS offering helps enterprises gain operational command of their security postures and across all of their partners, and vendors.
The extraordinary innovation seen at SecurityScorecard starts from the top, with the vision of CEO and Founder Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy. Dr. Yampolskiy developed a fundamentally different approach to security monitoring. He saw value in hiring white hat hackers to offer a non-intrusive outside in perspective that could provide companies across the world a unique solution that continuously monitors the vulnerabilities and security posture of thousands of vendors simultaneously.
This innovation continues into the daily workings of the company, where creativity and thinking outside the box are encouraged among employees. SecurityScorecard employees are encouraged to spend at least 10 percent of their time on non-corporate initiatives. Periodically, employees are given a “FedEX Day” and the chance to work on anything they like and deliver it within 24-48 hours. This encourages innovation and “outside the box” thinking, a level of nimbleness and speed that otherwise would not be possible, motivation throughout the company and the ability to address product issues that have not been road mapped.
SecurityScorecard is the top security firm, because no one else offers close to what they can by way of cyber security monitoring. However, their status as a leader in this space has never been enough. The company develops a steady stream of innovations supported by a corporate culture that encourages growth.
