A Product Rating is a forecast, an expert opinion about a product’s capacity to meet its obligations to consumers over time. Product ratings inform consumers — enhancing transparency and enabling them to focus on considerations that are most critical to their organizations.
Ratings range from AAA – D. A product rated ‘AAA’ has the highest rating assigned by CyberRatings.org. The product’s capacity to meet its commitments to consumers is extremely strong. A product rated ‘D’ is actively being breached by known threats and is unable to protect consumers.
Ratings offer forward looking guidance on a product’s ability to meet future commitments to customers and is based on multiple factors including technology and business leadership, employee turnover, customer satisfaction, financial strength, test results, and market conditions. Test results included security effectiveness, performance, SSL/TLSfunctionality, management, and customer feedback.
