NormShield vs. Competitors

NormShield provides trusted security rating services (SRS). Key players in SRS market (namely, NormShield, BitSight, SecurityScorecard, RiskRecon, and UpGuard) focus on publicly accessible data sources when performing vendor assessments and security benchmarking. Although each player has different approach to analyze and evaluate the security posture of a company, all use similar resources and techniques to collect data. 3rd-party risk-management products mainly gather publicly accessible data from the internet, hacker sites, social media, internet-wide scanners, reputation services, darkweb, their own sinkholes, etc. However, they are not all equal in terms of usability, analytics, compliance, technical depth, and threat intelligence capabilities.
