The first rating platforms could not do much more than collect open security data from the internet and apply analytics features to it to calculate a scorecard. Since then, much has changed: today’s platforms are developed fully in the cloud, use microservices architectures and are powered by artificial intelligence and big data. They are able to assess highly complex companies and their ecosystems, can be customized and detect new, hidden vulnerabilities with contextual and behavioral analysis, just like other, new-generation cyber protection solutions. Therefore, the use of such systems could be worthwhile for companies and should be evaluated.
