Gartner Hype Cycles illustrate the adoption of new technologies and their applicability in solving real business problems.
In this report, Gartner notes that “vendors for services and solutions — especially (but not exclusively) cloud service providers — have created a growing need to understand internal and external threats and security postures.”
Security rating services provide scoring and rating for vendors; however, a “rating score” without context is only a partial solution. What is needed is a combination of external attack surface assessments coupled with questionnaires filled out by the vendor.
