Prevalent Named an IT VRM Tools Leader

Prevalent is thrilled to be named a Leader again in the 2021 Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools.

Making Sense of a Crowded Leaders Quadrant

As you read this year’s Magic Quadrant report, you’ll notice that there are 10 vendors in the Leaders quadrant. How do you differentiate between vendors when so many are considered Leaders?

Strongest Vision Among Pure VRM Specialists Means You Will Be Ready for Tomorrow

“Completeness of Vision” in the Magic Quadrant includes current and future market direction, innovation, customer needs, and competitive forces and how well they map to the Gartner view of the market. We believe this market is evolving rapidly, and providers with a strong vision today are best positioned to deliver on the emerging use cases and capability requirements of tomorrow.

Prevalent believes that knowing where the market is headed, having a strategy in place to address customer needs, and building a rich roadmap of innovative new features are hallmarks of visionary solutions. Prevalent believes it features the strongest vision among pure-play vendor risk management specialists.
