Lockpath and BitSight Announce Partnership to Strengthen Cyber Security Risk Programs

The new integration focuses on managing security risk from third and fourth parties.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Oct. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockpath, a leading provider
of integrated risk management solutions today announced an integration of its
award-winning Keylight Platform with the BitSight Security Rating Platform.
Through this partnership and product integration, organizations now have the
ability to better address the growing number of cyber security risks posed by
third- and fourth-parties.

The integration of BitSight Security Ratings and Keylight, Lockpath's integrated
risk management platform, gives joint customers the ability to quickly identify
security risks posed by vendors, suppliers, and other third parties. The use of
BitSight's continuous monitoring capabilities combined with Keylight's dynamic
alerting and workflow tools provides joint customers with a more accurate and
actionable view into their third-party risk management programs.

Rick Hedeman, Director of Strategic Partnerships at BitSight, said, "The
BitSight and Keylight integration gives our customers actionable insight into
the cyber-security posture of their third and fourth parties, enabling them to
identify, understand, and act on threats facing their supplier ecosystem.
BitSight Security Ratings combined with Keylight's workflow and alerting
capabilities enables customers to design and run a comprehensive integrated risk
management program, strengthening their company's overall security posture."

Additionally, the integration will enhance internally-produced data in Keylight
with BitSight's objective, real-time data on the cyber security performance of
suppliers, based on externally observable, non-intrusive data and methods. This
enriched data set provides a more holistic picture of the security risks posed
by the third party, as well as additional context as to how these risks can
affect the business. Companies can use this information to determine the
frequency and depth of risk assessment needed and better prioritize remediation
efforts.

"This integration with BitSight will provide our customers with a more advanced
solution for managing third-party security risk," said Chris Caldwell, Lockpath
Chief Executive Officer and Founder. "The combination of Keylight's management
capabilities and analytics with BitSight's security ratings gives our customers
a more efficient and effective approach to third-party risk management."

Lockpath's award-winning Keylight Platform integrates the full vendor lifecycle
into daily processes and includes capabilities for information gathering, due
diligence investigation, risk assessments, contract negotiation, ongoing
monitoring, and termination workflows. By centralizing all this information in
one user-friendly solution with advanced reporting capabilities, Keylight allows
organizations to better manage vendor risk and to reduce the risk of
non-compliance.
