Lockpath and SecurityScorecard Partner to Increase Efficiency in Vendor Risk Management
Published on November 14, 2017
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – November 14, 2017 — Lockpath, a leading provider of compliance and risk management software, today announced the availability of the integration of its award-winning Keylight Platform with SecurityScorecard’s security rating platform. This product integration is aimed at helping organizations make their vendor assessment and management processes more efficient, while strengthening security programs.
The integration provides Lockpath customers with increased visibility into third-party security risk and the ability to quickly identify high-risk vendors through SecurityScorecard’s letter-grade ratings. Customers will significantly increase the efficiency of their security and compliance programs through better prioritization of vendors for assessment and remediation.
The integration will offer Lockpath customers two key components of SecurityScorecard’s platform:
- SecurityScorecard Integrated Content will provide overall letter-grade security ratings and will be free for Keylight cloud customers. This will give customers the ability to better prioritize what vendors need assessment and how frequently they should be assessed.
- The SecurityScorecard Connector, which offers underlying factor- and issue-related data that informs the overall letter-grade score, can be purchased by cloud or on-premise Keylight customers.
“This integration with SecurityScorecard will provide our customers with an even more advanced solution for managing risk from third parties of all types,” said Chris Caldwell, Lockpath CEO and founder. “The combination of Keylight’s management and analytics with SecurityScorecard’s continuous monitoring gives our customers a more streamlined and strengthened approach to third-party risk management.”
“We are excited to partner with Lockpath on this integration with Keylight. Third-party security risk is a major concern that continues to gain prominence as a business issue,” said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CEO and co-founder at SecurityScorecard. “Lockpath customers using SecurityScorecard’s ratings data can protect revenues and brand integrity by continuously validating the security risk profile of their third-parties.”
The SecurityScorecard Integrated Content and Connector are available as part of Lockpath’s Keylight 4.8 release.
Additional features available in Keylight 4.8 include:
- An enhanced audit log that tracks and makes administrative actions visible for audit and investigation purposes.
- Upgrades to Keylight’s patented Dynamic Content Framework that allow structural changes to the platform to be immediately incorporated, leading to increased scalability and performance.
