Digital Risk Protection: Where to Invest
July 18, 2018 • Avia Navickas
In today’s internet-driven world, companies face a whole new level of exposure to digital risk with regards to their digital infrastructure, online accounts, social presence, and more. Adding to the complexity of the situation, most companies underestimate their digital risk exposure.
Ideally, effective digital risk protection should enable organizations to achieve digital resiliency and help minimize business disruption and financial losses. To help mitigate these risks, security professionals are adopting digital risk protection solutions, and there is no shortage of options to choose from.
This week, Forrester Research released its new Digital Risk Protection report, assessing 14 vendors against 10 criteria, including:
- Web risk protection
- Dark web recon
- Digital risk analysis and review
- Dashboard and UI
- Global reach and analyst support
- Thought leadership and strategic partnerships
Vendors selected have a clear focus on security use cases and functions and the ability to mitigate digital risk, collect and scan data from wide range of sources, and a strong understanding and focus on helping customers handle their unique challenges.
Digital Risk Protection as Part of a Broader Strategy
Digital risk protection, while important on its own, should be considered just one part of a holistic security strategy. When thinking about where your organization should invest, consider vendors who not only support a variety use cases, but also have rich capabilities in each one.
On Recorded Future being recognized by Forrester as a leader, CEO and Co-Founder Christopher Ahlberg says, “We are thrilled to be named a leader in the Forrester Wave for Digital Risk Protection. We believe that a deep understanding of digital risk, paired with an ability to contextualize that risk instantaneously, is critical to building a strong, comprehensive threat intelligence offering.”
