A Benchmarking System to Spark Companies to Action - Innovation that Fuels New Deal Flow and Growth Pipelines
Digital risk protection (DRP) is a set of cybersecurity procedures that consists of four strategic pillars: mapping out the digital attack surface area, monitoring the threat landscape, mitigating scam and phishing attacks, and managing a comprehensive risk strategy to protect an organization’s external-facing digital assets beyond its network perimeter. Specifically, DRP platforms detect and remediate cloned websites, illegitimate use of brands, fake social media accounts, and unauthorized mobile applications created by hackers to use in a phishing attack. Common use cases include brand, domain, social media, and data leakage protection by scanning the surface and dark/deep web for potential threats. Demand for DRP solutions has skyrocketed as cyberattacks targeting organizations’ brand equity, customers, and employees are on the rise.
While the four strategic pillars mentioned previously (mapping, monitoring, mitigating, and managing) are critical for DRP, they also overlap, to a varying degree, with cyber threat intelligence (CTI) and external attack surface management (EASM). Due to increased demand for and the highly complementary nature of these cybersecurity solutions, many CTI and EASM vendors have adopted DRP uses cases, acquired other pure-play DRP providers, or partnered with DRP vendors. However, the wide variety of products, misleading marketing initiatives, limited awareness of DRP, and consolidation of CTI, EASM, and DRP capabilities have led to confusion in the market. To avoid misconceptions and standardize terms, the research team defines solutions that combine EASM, CTI, and DRP capabilities into one integrated experience as external risk mitigation and management (ERMM) platforms.
As a result, the research team has decided to publish two separate Frost Radars to benchmark individual DRP vendors more accurately. The DRP Services Frost Radar benchmarks pure-play vendors with DRP point solutions and vendors from adjacent security fields, such as CTI, email, and network security, who adopted DRP use cases. The ERMM Platforms Frost Radar benchmarks vendors that combine CTI, EASM, and DRP solutions into an integrated experience. This DRP Services Frost Radar benchmarks pure-play vendors with DRP point solutions and vendors from adjacent security fields, such as CTI, email, and network security, who adopted DRP use cases.
The Frost Radar reveals the market positioning of companies in an industry using their Growth and Innovation scores as highlighted in the Frost Radar methodology. The document presents competitive profiles of each company based on its strengths, opportunities, and a small discussion on its positioning. Frost & Sullivan analyzes hundreds of companies in the industry and benchmarks them across the 10 criteria, where the leading companies are then positioned on the Radar. Industry leaders on both the Growth and Innovation indices are recognized as best practice recipients.
