Carahsoft Named Distributor of SecurityScorecard’s Supply Chain Visibility Solution for Government
SecurityScorecard has entered into a public sector distribution agreement with Carahsoft Technology, a reseller of information technology products to government customers.
As part of the agreement, SecurityScorecard’s supply chain visibility offerings will be made available through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement V, IT Enterprise Technology Solutions-Software 2, OMNI Partners, National Association of State Procurement Officials ValuePoint and National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance Contract. The offerings will also be available through Carahsoft’s reseller partners, SecurityScorecard said Monday.
SecurityScorecard said its platform can provide public sector leaders a better understanding of the cybersecurity posture of its third-party ecosystem.
Aleksandr Yampolskiy, co-founder and CEO of SecurityScorecard, highlighted an increase in cyberattacks impacting functions such as energy, water, transportation and medical services.
The partners will host a webinar on April 21 to provide an introduction to SecurityScorecard’s cybersecurity rating method.
According to an earlier press release, SecurityScorecard uses non-intrusive methods to gain a data-driven view of an organization’s cybersecurity risk exposure and cybersecurity hygiene. Performance is scored using an A-through-F scale. The company accounts for performance in areas like network security, patching cadence and other such areas.
SecurityScorecard said it rates more than 12 million entities globally and provides an “outside-in” view of security postures based on publicly available information.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency recently added SecurityScorecard’s rating method to its catalog of free cybersecurity services and tools and categorized it with a “basic” skill requirement.
CISA’s catalog includes services provided by the agency, widely used open-source tools and free services provided by the private and public sectors.
