Frontline Security GPA®, our unique, but simple security rating metric reflects even the smallest improvements as you continually assess your vulnerabilities and perform necessary remediation while other systems often do not.
Your dynamically generated Security GPA View is delivered through our powerful Frontline VM™ platform. Study your trending over time, access high-level and detailed information through drill-down and determine your organization’s Security GPA posture against peer groups within Frontline.Cloud™.
Read our Security GPA Blog to learn more about how this Frontline Feature can help identify and prioritize remediation.
“The Security GPA scoring system makes it easy to translate to management”
Security GPA is visualized in the platform as both a letter grade and a numerical grade so your team can see incremental improvements. A numerical GPA reflects the smallest repairs to medium or low-level vulnerabilities, while the letter grade may remain the same.
For example, if the security rating of a Domain Controller improved from ‘Poor’ to ‘Satisfactory’, an organization would typically see their Security GPA go up, whereas in a traditional overall rating system it may not. In addition, other systems often weight non-critical devices such as printers and IP phones so they have a negative effect on your overall cyber security rating even though they may not be critical to your business. Security GPA takes into account the perceived criticality of your individual systems and system types and rates them accordingly.
Since we introduced Security GPA more than 15 years ago, we have continued to enhance it with additional functionality that provides additional insight, as well as to adapt to vulnerability management processes.
