Lifeboat Inks New Partnership with Cybersecurity Ratings Platform SecurityScorecard
Agreement will help SecurityScorecard service and develop boutique partners across their partner community
Lifeboat Distribution, an international value-added distributor for virtualization, security, business continuity and emerging technologies, announced a distribution agreement with SecurityScorecard, the global leader in security ratings.
Through the partnership, Lifeboat will recruit and enable SecurityScorecard partners, giving them the ability to build solutions for their customers that address third-party risk and a path for remediation.
SecurityScorecard takes an outside-in view of a company’s security posture by seeing what a hacker sees. Their technology uses non-intrusive proprietary data collection methods, as well as trusted commercial and open-source threat feeds to continuously monitor 10 risk factor groups and instantly deliver an easy-to understand A-F rating. This empowers organizations to immediately identify and prioritize high-risk third parties for assessment and remediation, ultimately leading to a more secure environment.

“The addition of SecurityScorecard to our product portfolio will allow us to provide a solution that addresses today’s cyber threats and third-party risk,” said Dale Foster, Chief Executive Officer, Lifeboat Distribution. “They offer security practitioners an accurate and instant view of their organization’s risk of attack. This view includes reporting on top security categories like compliance, risk management, self-assessments, cyber insurance, threat reconnaissance, and all reporting a level of intelligence that delivers a health score of a datacenter’s ecosystem.”
For an “inside- out” view, security questionnaire responses are validated against SecurityScorecard’s instantly accessible ratings, providing a true 360-degree view of third-party cybersecurity risk. SecurityScorecard is the only security ratings company with over a million continuously rated companies. With a belief that trust and transparency is paramount, they give everyone access to their Trust Portal allowing rated companies visibility into the data being collected and how it is being assessed.
