PHOENIX, AZ — April 28, 2020 – Prevalent, Inc., the company that transforms how you manage third-party risk, and Theorem LTS, the leading legal technology marketplace, today announced a partnership providing law firms and corporate legal teams with immediate access to a comprehensive library of risk-assessed vendors. Based on the Prevalent Legal Vendor Network, the legal industry’s preferred third-party risk management platform. Theorem customers can quickly and cost-effectively search for and gain insight into the security postures of vendors in the marketplace.

Although law firms are considered essential businesses in many states, the majority of lawyers are working from home. Successfully practicing remotely may require using new technologies, such as collaboration tools, secure remote access products and business continuity solutions. These vendors must meet certain firm and client cybersecurity and compliance requirements, which can be a long and costly undertaking, significantly effecting productivity.

“Our partnership with Theorem provides legal teams with the information they need to onboard vendors quickly, especially technology providers needed to remain productive, secure and competitive while working from home,” said Brenda Ferraro, vice president of third-party risk at Prevalent, Inc. “We are committed to continuing to find ways to help remote workers meet cybersecurity and compliance standards during this unprecedented time.”

With this partnership, law firms and corporate legal teams have the ability to quickly understand the cybersecurity postures of new vendors prior to onboarding them. The marketplace also gives technology providers the opportunity to request self-assessments to be properly vetted, earning them a preferred spot on the Theorem marketplace. Once companies are assessed using the Prevalent solution, a badge will be awarded, providing easy identification for Theorem customers. There will be two types of badges indicating the level of assessment, based on the Standard Information Gathering (SIG) questionnaire from Shared Assessments.

“Our partnership with Prevalent is a key step in our commitment to deliver secure technology stacks in a consolidated environment, so firms and corporations can have access to loads of alternatives that meet acceptable standards — it’s all about efficiency and compliance,” says Theorem CEO, Joshua Maley.
