The Privva platform allows security professionals across industries to manage an efficient vendor risk management program, including automated assessments and ongoing remediation of risks. Privva’s platform allows clients the flexibility to bring an existing security assessment or utilize industry standard frameworks, such as the Share Assessments SIG or NIST-based questionnaires.

The BitSight Security Rating Platform generates objective, quantitative measurements on a company’s security performance to produce daily security ratings ranging from 250 to 900. BitSight analyzes externally observable security incidents and practices, and applies sophisticated algorithms to produce a rating between 250 to 900.

Joint customers can now access BitSight Security Ratings data to easily identify any changes in a vendor’s cybersecurity posture. Privva users may then access BitSight for more data and information, or can leverage Privva’s Remediation Management feature to communicate remediation requirements to vendors. Additionally, Privva users may utilize the BitSight Security Ratings and detailed security reports to ensure assignment of the appropriate security assessment questions to each vendor or vendor group.

“We believe that the combination of security questionnaires on the internal security profile of vendors with continuous security monitoring of external data, provides Privva’s clients with the right level of information to appropriately manage risk,” states Ishan Girdhar, Chief Executive Officer at Privva. “As part of our open platform initiative, we are excited to offer a more comprehensive solution for vendor risk management to Privva and BitSight customers.”

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Privva,” said Matt Cherian, VP of Strategic Partnershipsof BitSight. The integration of BitSight Security Ratings with Privva’s flexible and adaptive third party risk management software is providing a scalable approach to the security assessment process and a more comprehensive view of vendors’ cybersecurity ratings on a centralized platform. BitSight customers will be able to leverage BitSight Security Ratings from within the Privva platform improving their processes to prioritize and manage risk.”
