RiskRecon vs product overview

RiskRecon vs UpGuard product overview

Learn more about the products and how they compare.

There are a lot of security ratings providers now, and choosing the right one can be overwhelming. That's why we wrote this post to make it as easy as possible to help you compare RiskRecon and UpGuard.

Regardless of whether you're a CISO, Vice President of Security or an individual contributor, it's safe to say you understand how important cybersecurity risk management is. Technology has increased the speed, scale, and impact of all aspects of commerce, while also increasing the risk of data leaks, data breaches, malware, and other cyber threats.

Poor cybersecurity can have a huge impact on your bottom line, with the global average cost of a data breach growing 12 percent in the last five years to $3.92 million. If you operate in a heavily regulated industry, such as healthcare or financial services, your average would likely be much higher. For example, healthcare had an average industry cost of $6.45 million.

This is due to the large amounts of sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII) or protected health information (PHI) that healthcare organizations store and process.

Even if you don't currently operate in a regulated industry, the introduction of general data protection regulations around the world means the scope of what must be protected is ever-expanding.

Most of these regulations are extraterritorial, which means they apply to your organizations if you process any of their constituent's data. Regardless of whether you operate in their jurisdiction. Examples include the EU's GDPR, Canada's PIPEDA, Florida's FIPA, New York's SHIELD Act, California's CCPA, and Brazil's LGPD.

And most of these laws also have data breach notification requirements, increasing the reputational damage of successful cyber attacks. This is a big reason why so many organizations have invested in security ratings tools to help them instantly assess security postures to help scale their first and third-party risk management programs. Best-in-class organizations have even begun to manage their fourth-party and fifth-party risk.

One of the most common issues we see is that cyber risk management requires buy-in from all levels of the organization, which requires the translation of technical details like security postures, cybersecurity risk assessments, vendor questionnaires, and information security policies into terms that even non-technical stakeholders can easily understand.

We believe security ratings are the best way to do this without adding any operational overhead to your organization. They provide an instantaneous assessment of cyber risk, much like a credit score does for credit risk.

Gartner agrees with us, cybersecurity ratings will become as important as credit ratings when assessing the risk of existing and new business relationships…these services will become a precondition for business relationships and part of the standard of due care for providers and procurers of services. Additionally, the services will have expanded their scope to assess other areas, such as cyber insurance, due diligence for M&A and even as a raw metric for internal security programs.

As does Forrester, cyber-risk rating tools show their value right away. They will scan and score your third-party risk environment and identify glaring gaps of key partners as early as your initial meeting.

We wrote the post to solve the main issue many of our prospects face: the increasing number of security ratings providers to pick from including BitSight, SecurityScorecard, RiskRecon, CyberGRX, MetricStream, Prevalent, Normshield, and Panorays.

The issue is that the methodologies employed by these threat intelligence tools vary greatly, as do their results.

For example, BitSight, SecurityScorecard, and RiskRecon focus primarily on the assessment of business partners, vendors, and service providers, if you want to see see how these services stack up read our other comparison posts:

In contrast, UpGuard has a complete continuous monitoring risk management solution that handles behind-the-firewall risk with UpGuard Core, vendor risk management with UpGuard Vendor Risk, and data leak detection and cybersecurity performance management with UpGuard BreachSight.

In this post, we'll help you understand what to look for in a security ratings solution, so you can make an informed decision about whether to go with RiskRecon or UpGuard.

But before we dive into the specifics, it's important to understand what security risk ratings are and why they are important.

What are security ratings?

Security ratings are a data-driven, objective, and up-to-date measurement of an organization's external security posture. This means the collective security status of all their Internet-facing software, hardware, services, networks, information, vendors, and service providers.

Just as a FICO score aims to provide a quantitative measure of credit risk, security ratings provide a quantitative measure of cyber risk, which can be used and understood by non-technical stakeholders.

The higher the security rating, the better the organization's security posture.  

Security ratings are commonly used for assessing the cybersecurity of external organizations like vendors, investment targets, insurance applicants, as well as assessing internal risk, and to improve decision-making and communication around cybersecurity performance management.

Third-party risk management and security teams use security ratings to manage and reduce cybersecurity risk, including:

  • Understanding third-party risk and fourth-party risk (vendor risk) posed by supply chain, third-party vendor, and business partner relationships.
  • Cyber insurance underwriting, pricing and risk management by allowing insurers to gain visibility into the security program of those they insure to better assess and price their insurance policies.
  • Investment in or acquisition of a company by providing organizations with an independent assessment of an investment or M&A target's information security controls.
  • Enabling governments to better understand and manage theirs and their vendors' cybersecurity performance, a key component of FISMA compliance.
  • Continual assessment of internal cybersecurity posture, providing CISOs with a simple, understandable rating that can be presented to key stakeholders including C-Suite and board members.
  • Benchmarking and comparison to industry peers, competitors, sectors, and vendors. This can assist with decision-making and provide context about what security controls or mitigations your organization needs to invest in.
  • Providing assurance to customers, insurers, regulators and other stakeholders that your organization cares about preventing security issues like data breaches, malware, phishing, and ransomware.

UpGuard overview

UpGuard was founded in 2012 by technologists from some of Australia’s largest banks. Using their first-hand experience, they built a platform to fill an important need in the nascent DevOps market: reducing the risk of incidents through proactive documentation and testing of desired system state.  With proprietary, patented data visualization and risk analysis algorithms, UpGuard gave Operations and Security departments the ability to discover and understand their digital surfaces within the data center and the cloud to reduce their cybersecurity risk.

Now, those capabilities have been turned outward to the public internet to capture the digital surfaces beyond the boundaries of the enterprise. UpGuard is headquartered in Mountain View, California with offices in Sydney, Australia. UpGuard also works with insurance companies and underwriters as part of their cyber insurance process.

Capabilities

RiskRecon and UpGuard provide security ratings that aggregate different risks into a single score that allows for immediate and easy comparison of different organizations, vendors, and service providers.

  • RiskRecon: RiskRecon distills its assessment criteria into a simple score from 0-10.
  • UpGuard: Provides a score between 0 and 950 along with the following letter grades, A: 801-950, B: 601-800, C: 401-600, D: 201-400, F: 0-200. You can request your free security rating by clicking here.

Security rating calculation methodology

The way each security ratings provider derives their score differs to some degree. Some rely on IP address reputation that aims to attribute malware traffic to an organization based on IP address, whereas others rely on scanning for misconfiguration across web applications, network security, and endpoint security. This means looking at an organization's actual Internet footprint and determining how it compares to best practices and what vulnerabilities lead to data breaches. Read our guide on why IP attribution isn't a complete solution here.

With that said, RiskRecon and UpGuard rely on misconfiguration scanning.

  • RiskRecon: Assesses an organization against 11 security domains and 41 security criteria
  • UpGuard: Runs hundreds of individual checks including email security and email spoofing risks (SPF, DKIM, and DMARC), website security (SSL, HSTS, header exposure), phishing and malware risk, explicit checks for 200 services across thousands of ports (mail, app, user auth, file sharing, voice, administration, database, unidentified, and open ports), domain hijacking risk (DNSSEC and domain registry issues), reputational risks (CEO rating and employee rating), credential management (exposure to known data breaches and data leaks detected by our data leak detection engine) and results of intelligent security questionnaires.

Scope

Not every solution provides the same level of coverage. If your organization employs small specialist vendors they may not be covered by a solution. As you know, any vendor that handles sensitive data is a potential risk that should be continuously monitored and accounted for.

Pricing and support

Security ratings providers can be expensive, with opaque pricing policies designed to put the power in the hands of the vendor. As vendor risk solutions are typically priced on a per vendor, per year basis, the cost can price out many small to medium-sized businesses while relegating even large companies to manage only their most at-risk vendors. This isn't a great solution as any vendor who processes sensitive data needs to be continuously monitored. Additionally, RiskRecon and UpGuard provide professional services to assist with setup, training, and maintenance.  

  • RiskRecon: Public pricing information is not available. Pricing is reported to start at $10,000 and increases based on the number of vendors monitored.
  • UpGuard: UpGuard has a transparent pricing model which you can view here. UpGuard pricing starts at $5k/year and scales with your company. If you have any questions, please let us know via sales@upguard.com and we will follow up.
