Axcient Offers Most Secure Cloud in the Industry According to SecurityScorecard
Ranked #1 Across All Product Categories
DENVER, CO (January 23, 2019) –Today, Axcient, a leader in business continuity and cloud migration solutions for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), announced its ‘A’ rating from SecurityScorecard verifying the security of its business continuity, disaster recovery, and cloud migration tools. This ‘A’ security rating encompasses controls protecting security across all risk indicators, including Networking, DNS Health, Patching Cadence, Endpoint Security, IP address, Web Application Security, Cubit Score, Hacker Chatter, Information Leak, and Social Engineering.
As a cloud services platform custom-built to secure and support MSPs, Axcient’s security rating enables Partners to both trust and verify the data protections supporting their supply stream. Gathering publicly available information across the Internet, using the SecurityScorecard platform, Axcient can now leverage their best-in-class cybersecurity control environment without compromising the integrity of their internal controls. For more than four months, SecurityScorecard has continuously monitored 10 risk indicators across seven different companies, determining Axcient’s overall cyber health.
“SecurityScorecard’s rating validates the security and reliability of Axcient’s business continuity offerings,” said Joshua Foltz, Chief Security and Compliance Officer at Axcient. “In all that we do—whether product development, process innovation, or security testing—we put the needs of our Partners first. The scorecard proves that our applications and cloud are the most secure, which is a direct reflection of our Partner experience and commitment to offering world-class products.”
SecurityScorecard enables users to view and continuously monitor security ratings and report on the cyberhealth of their ecosystems. In the monitoring process, SecurityScorecard integrated an algorithm called Next-Gen Scoring that deployed a deterministic scoring methodology for Axcient based on a robust statistical framework with a grading system that links issue changes to score fluctuations. Based on threat data, Axcient was graded and benchmarked against six different companies, including Acronis, Datto, StorageCraft, Barracuda, Infrascale, and Veeam. The monitoring and test determined that Axcient was the only company who received an ‘A’ rating.
“This is a competitive differentiator for Axcient,” said Marc Moesse, Vice President of Product at SecurityScorecard. “Nearly 70% of breaches are a result of poor third-party security. With Axcient, MSPs can have confidence that if their customers lose a server, system, website, or data center, the company offers secure technology to recover data to stand up their servers and get back to business.”
