BOSTON, May 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- BitSight, the Standard in Security Ratings, today announced it has been named a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for IT Vendor Risk Management (VRM) Tools. The Customers' Choice distinction is based on verified customer reviews of the BitSight Security Ratings platform. BitSight is the only Security Ratings Service to earn this distinction, and is one of only two companies to be honored.
Companies are facing unprecedented challenges in managing risks to their third-party ecosystem, and the massive shift to remote work has only expanded the attack surface. According to Gartner, delays in vendor onboarding have become one of the largest obstacles to digital transformation and business growth. BitSight helps organizations rapidly assess and continuously measure and monitor the security performance of third parties.
"In these trying times, security and risk professionals turn to their peers for advice and recommendations on managing cyber risk," said Steve Harvey, CEO of BitSight. "We are honored that so many of our customers shared their positive experiences with BitSight. We believe this recognition validates our commitment to delivering the most innovative products to our customers and to partnering with them on their journey to measurably reduce risk and achieve greater operational efficiency for their organizations."
