Security Scoreboard is the only vendor neutral directory and review site of every information security vendor.
Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) February 17, 2010
Leading information security thought leaders and executives today joined the Advisory Group of Security Scoreboard. Security Scoreboard is the first online comprehensive directory of all information security vendors. With rising cyber-threats and increasing regulatory mandates, Security Scoreboard is a vital resource for security managers facing a confusing marketplace with hundreds of vendors and a barrage of competing claims. Security Scoreboard is the only vendor neutral directory and review site of every information security vendor.
“It is incredibly valuable to have the entire security industry mapped out in one website, this adds a level of transparency that previously did not exist” said Ed Bellis, the Chief Information Security Officer for Orbitz Worldwide. “I am very pleased to take part in the Advisory Group and help advise Security Scoreboard.”
“There are hundreds of security vendors and Security Scoreboard offers security professionals a simple and easy place to research and compare them and their offerings,” said Alex Abramov, the VP of IT Risk at one of the nation’s largest banks and a new member of the Advisory Group. “Security Scoreboard is a neutral venue that security professionals can trust while making their sourcing decisions.”
"Security Scoreboard is one of the most useful projects in the entire security industry today. It helps to answer the key question 'What security gear should I buy to solve a specific problem?'”, said Dr. Anton Chuvakin, a security industry veteran who authors one of the most widely read blogs in the industry. “What makes it even more amazing is that it will contain security product user reviews - something that was long overdue in the industry."
“We are delighted to have such industry leaders joining our Advisory Group to help inform our work,” said Dr. Boaz Gelbord, the founder of Security Scoreboard and a security executive at a New York-based firm. “The Advisory Group brings a wealth of experience in some of the most challenging roles in the security industry. Security Scoreboard looks forward to leveraging their expertise to help security professionals make sense of the more than 600 companies active in our industry.”
Security Scoreboard collects user reviews through both its website and offline interaction with security managers at events and conferences. Security Scoreboard looks forward to working with its Advisory Group and the industry at large to further build the only comprehensive and vendor neutral directory of every information security vendor.
