Why Black Kite?

Customer commitment. Innovation. Integrity.

For cyber risk professionals looking to quantify and maintain visibility of their risk exposure, Black Kite provides a defensible platform that spans the entirety of the third party risk management life cycle.

Our rating technology uses open-source intelligence to compare vendor cybersecurity to industry standards. Black Kite is also the only cyber rating system that puts a dollar value on risk, using OpenFAIR to quantify risk in financial terms.

By eliminating false positives and providing tools to fix risk levels across their externally facing digital footprint, our platform makes organizations more resilient.

Black Kite’s platform was built to provide full visibility into a vendor’s cyber position, using the same open-source intelligence tools and techniques hackers use (data collectors, crawlers, honeypots, etc.) to continuously collect information from internet-wide scanner databases, reputation sites, cyber events, hacker shares, and known vulnerability databases.

Our platform communicates risk in qualitative, quantitative, and easy-to-understand business terms for executives, and allows IT-security teams to drill down to the technical details in three risk categories: technical grade, regulatory compliance, and financial impact.
