SecurityScorecard, the global leader in cyber security ratings, today announced a strategic partnership with HCLTech, a leading global technology company that provides a holistic approach to security management, improving customers’ ability to see, address and communicate risk more effectively.
HCLTech offers SecurityScorecard’s leading cybersecurity ratings as part of its Cybersecurity and Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) offerings, enabling customers to gain visibility into their vendor ecosystem and manage each vendor’s security and risk landscape. SecurityScorecard’s services are now integrated with HCLTech’s Cyber Security Fusion Center (CSFC).
HCLTech’s managed security services, along with the Security Scorecard platform and rating data, enable customers to proactively monitor, identify, investigate, respond, report and assess cyber risks and recommend best practices to mitigate those risks. The SecurityScorecard ensures that customers, including their third- and fourth-party vendors, have achieved a responsive cybersecurity ecosystem security posture, continuously monitored and reviewed for 360-degree protection.
“Customers are struggling to manage, understand and mitigate risk not only within their organization but also with their expanding third-party environment,” said Amit Jain, Executive Vice President, Cyber Security and GRC Services, HCLTech. “By integrating SecurityScorecard’s ratings into HCLTech’s Cyber Security Fusion Centers (CSFCs), we will provide our customers with valuable new security insights into their vendor ecosystem and proactively help mitigate threats.”
SecurityScorecard collects and analyzes global threat signals that give organizations instant visibility into the security posture of vendors and business partners and the ability to self-assess their security posture. This technology continuously monitors ten groups of risk factors to instantly deliver an easy-to-understand AF rating.
“SecurityScorecard is empowering the next generation of managed security service providers with the technology and tools to effectively manage the ever-expanding threat landscape,” said Alexander Yampolsky, CEO and co-founder of SecurityScorecard. “We look forward to partnering with HCLTech to provide enhanced security management to our joint customers.”
