NormShield vs. Competitors

NormShield provides trusted security rating services (SRS). Key players in the SRS market (NormShield, BitSight, SecurityScorecard, RiskRecon, and UpGuard) focus on publicly accessible, external data sources when performing vendor assessments and security benchmarking. Although each player has a different approach to analyze and evaluate a company’s security posture, all providers in the SRS market use similar resources and techniques to collect data. Third-party risk-management products mainly gather publicly accessible data from the internet, hacker sites, social media, internet-wide scanners, reputation services, darkweb, as well as their own sinkholes.

However, not all SRS providers areequal in terms of usability, analytics, compliance, technical depth, and threat intelligence capabilities. Compare NormShield’s Cyber Risk Scorecards with other SRS products in the market to help you make a better informed decision on selecting SRS tool for a better cyber risk management.
