The 10 Coolest Security Startups Of 2015 (So Far)
CEO: Shaun McConnon
As mega breaches continue to hit the marketplace, companies want to know if they will be next. BitSight provides a technology that allows businesses to get a security rating score, similar to a credit score or a Moody's rating, to find out the performance of their own internal systems, as well as those of their peers, competitors and possible acquisition targets, using publicly accessible threat intelligence, data hygiene and disclosures. The Cambridge, Mass.-based company has been on a growth tear, tripling its year over year revenue and landing $23 million in Series B funding in June. The company said it is looking to aggressively grow its channel program from 10 percent of its revenue to 40 percent by the end of the year and sees a huge opportunity for partners to use the rating technology to drive security sales with clients.
