NEW YORK, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityScorecard, the most accurate security rating and continuous risk monitoring platform, is announcing it has secured multiple patents from the United States Government.
SecurityScorecard was awarded patents for:
- Calculating and benchmarking an entity's security risk score
- Entity IP mapping
- Online portal for improving security risk scores
- Graphical user interface for security to reduce risk

These patents enable SecurityScorecard to take a unique approach to security and produce the most accurate security rating on the market. By integrating proprietary intelligence into their risk and rating cloud solution, SecurityScorecard can identify vulnerabilities not recognizable by any of its competitors, while offering - the same perspective that an outside hacker would have.
"As a former CISO with over a decade of security experience, it has proved challenging to know the overall security posture of your organization and of those you conduct business with. It's the premise SecurityScorecard was founded on, and why we focus our research efforts on new and innovative techniques to accurately rate any organization's security status," said Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CEO of SecurityScorecard. "As a result of patents such as these, our platform evaluates over 500 percent more critical security data points than our nearest competitor, enabling us to have the most accurate rating of security risk for any organization across the world."
This news comes on the heels of SecurityScorecard's recent announcement that it had secured $20 million in Series B funding, led by GV (formerly Google Ventures), Sequoia Capital, Evolution Equity Partners, Boldstart Ventures, and Two Sigma Ventures.
