Silver Spring, MD – January 13, 2016 – TSC Advantage announced today that its Threat Vector Manager™ (TVM) risk assessment solution has been named a finalist for the 2016 ISPG Global Excellence Awards in the category of Best Security Products and Solutions for Insurance. Info Security Products Guide is the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that help set the bar in all areas of security and technologies. Winners will be announced in San Francisco on February 29, 2016.
Threat Vector Manager™ is a proprietary, patent-pending cyber risk assessment methodology that holistically identifies trends, patterns, and areas of elevated risk across an enterprise environment in order to prevent and reduce cyber attacks, data breaches, or physical acts of terrorism. TVM is unique in the domain of cybersecurity risk assessment due to its U.S. DHS Safety Act designation, which extends liability indemnity to customers for third party claims arising from a covered act of terrorism, as well as the output of the assessment itself, which produces a risk profile score and domain maturity level within six enterprise domains and has been adopted by global underwriters to help determine the insurability of potential insureds operating in the U.S. critical infrastructure segment.
“TSC Advantage is pioneering a vastly improved approach to cyber insurance underwriting, which rewards mature cyber security postures and allows customers to receive insurance with the broadest coverage, fewest exclusions, and tailored to their individual threat profiles,” said Sean Doherty, President of TSC Advantage. “We’re proud that Threat Vector Manager’s™ customer-focused methodology has been recognized as a finalist by Info Security Products Guide.”
