Recognized in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cyber Risk Management, 2023


NorthStar, an innovative vulnerability prioritization and prediction technology, announces the company is recognized in the 2023 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cyber Risk Management[1]. NorthStar is named as a Sample Vendor in the Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) innovation category.

Gartner Hype Cycle reports provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities.

“We’re thrilled to receive recognition from Gartner in the Hype Cycle for Cyber Risk Management “said Alex Moss, CEO and co-founder of NorthStar. “We think our inclusion in the report highlights NorthStar’s commitment to providing the foundational technologies that support successful CTEM programs (Cyber Threat Exposure Management).”

NorthStar Navigator’s powerful data engine fuels risk reduction efforts via simple, contextual vulnerability prioritization for easier remediation and asset visibility. It provides a simple path to vulnerability management maturity, introducing true business context to prioritization, and delivers a data-driven scoring model offering the flexibility, visibility and transparency required to address the exposures that are the most important to each individual organization.

By integrating NorthStar’s prioritization model into vulnerability assessment programs, it acts as an early warning system that gives security and patching teams more time to remediate, more time to plan, and more time to focus on other risk priorities.

“In a digital age where every computer resource is a potential gateway for exploitation, our hyper focus on the many aspects of exposure management – including CAASM – gives organizations a proactive approach to understanding the business value of assets and the effect they have on the attack surface before a crisis occurs, “said Moss.
