Becoming A Gartner Cool Vendor

The Randori team and I are thrilled to be recognized as a 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor in Security Operations. We believe being named a Gartner Cool Vendor is one of the great honors a cybersecurity firm can receive. You cannot apply to be a Gartner Cool Vendor; one is only evaluated and recognized by Gartner analysts. We believe this is validation for our customers and a signal to the market that Randori is leading the attack surface management market.

As mentioned in the report, “The more visibility an organization has into their assets and environments, the better they can understand, manage, and ultimately reduce exposure.”

Enterprise organizations who have a heavy presence of digital assets outside the confines of the enterprise perimeter, or have invested in vulnerability assessment solutions and looking for more actionable ways to prioritize vulnerabilities choose Randori to meet their Attack Surface Management needs.

EASM: Your First Line of Defense Against Ransomware

Ransomware is on the mind of every CISO and CEO. In the wake of the Colonial Pipeline and JBS attacks, every security operations team is scrambling to reduce their risk of ransomware. Nowhere is this perspective more urgently needed than on the perimeter. Ransomware attacks have surged more than 700% with 40% of attacks originating on the perimeter. In addition, shadow IT, expanding remote work forces, and cloud transformation projects are creating new opportunities for attackers. Enterprise CISOs are quickly adopting new External Attack Surface Management tools, to help manage this.

As the pioneer in external attack surface management (EASM), the Randori Platform was built to provide the most authentic view of your attack surface. We continuously show you what the hackers are seeing better than anyone else. Unlike other EASM vendors, our insights are backed with action and informed by our team’s decades of attack experience – providing you with the most actionable insights available.

Enterprises such as NOV, FirstBank, Air Canada, and Lionbridge use our platform to identify shadow IT, misconfigurations, and vulnerabilities missed by traditional asset and vulnerability management solutions. We believe, our recognition as a Cool Vendor aligns/resonates with their choice.

Every security company has engineers developing new technology, but Randori was founded by attackers who have worked for major government agencies and clearly understand the mindset and skill set of Russian and Chinese hackers. This gives us a hacker culture and allows us to bring a unique offensive perspective to the table – that every company needs!

What Makes Randori a Cool Vendor ?

We believe Randori provides organizations with industry-leading visibility into their attack surface and security effectiveness while removing the need for an organization to have expertise, or a bench of experts, in red teaming.

Why we believe enterprise organizations choose Randori:

  • Randori’s Ability to Find Unknowns: Corporate environments are dynamic and diverse environments making blindspots and shadow IT a constant challenge- Randori automatically discovers your true attack surface, finding unknown assets others miss. This is an essential capability for any security team at organizations with large environments and heavy digital asset footprints.
  • Pioneering Vulnerability Prioritization: Randori provides vulnerability management teams critical insight into the attackability of external-facing assets. With only 1 in 5 vulnerabilities ever exploited, being able to prioritize the ones hackers are most likely to target is essential. Randori’s patented Target Temptation engine and industry-leading prioritization features make prioritizing vulnerabilities and reporting progress easy.
  • Keen Focus on Operationalization: While other ASM vendors focus on Mean Time to Identification (MTTI), Randori understands that identification is just the beginning and the real value comes not from knowing but acting. Our platform has been designed to reduce Mean Time to Action and accelerate your team’s ability to respond. Our rich bi-directional APIs and ecosystem of integration partners makes it easy to integrate Randori with other asset and vulnerability management solutions and are being used by our customer to provide critical context on their external attack surface.

Know the Unknowns Hackers Are Targeting

The Randori Platform was designed to think and act like today’s nation-state and ransomware actors. Our attack platform automatically identifies the internet-facing assets hackers will attack first, exposing where and how attackers will strike your environment.
