Technology Rating Definition
Ada’s Technology Rating illustrates risks and vulnerabilities to an organization’s external technology surfaces from publicly-available data. It draws from a subset of factors in UpGuard’s Cyber Security Rating (CSR):
- Attack indicators, including computer viruses, malware and e-mail phishing, show evidence of ongoing or prior attempts to attack web sites or online information.
- Security misconfigurations, including weak / expired encryption (SSL/TLS), allow attackers to more easily gain access to confidential information or systems.
- Weak Security practices and hygiene, including domains at risk of being hijacked (DNSSEC) and open ports, allow attackers to access networks or computer systems.
- Web vulnerabilities, including application headers, expose online web applications and data to attacks.
