SecurityScorecard partners will get new capabilities from the cybersecurity ratings provider’s acquisition of Lifars, which offers digital forensics, incident response and cyber resiliency services.
The Lifars cybersecurity team will operate as a new digital forensics and incident response (DFIR) practice. It will operate within SecurityScorecard’s professional services group. This will complement SecurityScorecard’s capabilities in cybersecurity ratings, data and assessments.
The combined insights and services will give customers a deeper view into cyber risk through enhanced in-house threat intelligence data collection capabilities and improved post-breach response capabilities.
Aleksandr Yampolskiy is SecurityScorecard‘s co-founder and CEO.

“The integration of Lifars DFIR and offensive security testing capabilities will add to the insights SecurityScorecard already sees from its global, cyber data collection processes,” he said. “SecurityScorecard routinely discovers more than 54 billion security issues globally per week. This acquisition expands the company’s … security data, and we believe further distances SecurityScorecard from its competitors. Lifars services will be available for certified SecurityScorecard services delivery partners to deliver to customers.”
Future improvements to the SecurityScorecard ratings platform will also be offered to partners as solutions for their customers, Yampolskiy said.
“We are dedicated to defending against increasingly sophisticated digital adversaries through innovative products and services that our partners can also offer their customers,” he said.
SecurityScorecard is filling a gap in the market as the first security ratings company to offer DFIR services, Yampolskiy said.
“This expertise strengthens security services in both proactive security assessments and post-breach services, and puts our partners in an equally competitive position,” he said. “SecurityScorecard has seen continued customer and partner demand for security insights and response capabilities.”
The acquisition should accelerate SecurityScorecard’s growth by expanding security insights available to the marketplace, Yampolskiy said.
Ondrej Krehel is Lifars‘ CEO.
“SecurityScorecard’s security ratings, data collection methods and scoring methodology brings unparalleled insights to our customers and partners,” he said. “Having SecurityScorecard’s experts and insights available at the ready will be a superior industry value-add for customers of Lifars.”
