Outpost24, an innovator in identifying and managing cyber exposure, today announced its recent recognition as a Challenger in “The Forrester WaveTM: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q4 2019.”
The Forrester Wave highlights that Outpost24’s customer references “were consistently happy with the support they received and the management of the product”, and that the product was flexible and easy to use. According to the report, Forrester Research analysts ‘would recommend Outpost24 to those who are looking for a vulnerability assessment vendor who will be an engaged and responsive partner’.
“We are proud to be named among the most significant vendors within the vulnerability risk management market by Forrester Research. We believe that this is a milestone that recognizes our market presence, strategy and product offerings,” said Bob Egner, CMO of Outpost24. “Our focus on full stack assessment helps organizations understand where their crown jewels are, where they are weak and establishes priorities for remediation. Our open API strategy provides a simplified approach to integrate with security and operational technologies needed for mitigating vulnerabilities, and freeing up time for over-worked security staff.”
Organizations face a difficult challenge with increasing cyber security threats in their expanding digital technology stack.

Outpost24’s cyber security assessment tools can identify and asses security posture from inside and out, and provide a full-stack approach to prioritizing cyber security exposure that poses the biggest risks to the business across all technology assets – devices, networks, clouds, and applications.
