PHOENIX, September 12, 2022 – Prevalent, Inc., the company that takes the pain out of third-party risk management (TPRM), today announced it has been recognized as a Leader in the first IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Third-Party Risk Management Software (Doc #US48295522, September 2022). The IDC MarketScape evaluated 12 TPRM providers and highlights Prevalent’s managed services, risk rating and tool kit as the key differentiators contributing to its position as a Leader.

The Prevalent Third-Party Risk Management Platform is a SaaS solution that enables companies to automate the critical tasks required to onboard, assess, manage, continuously monitor and remediate third-party security, privacy, compliance, operational, and procurement-related risks across every stage of the vendor lifecycle. The IDC MarketScape's assessment highlights what Prevalent considers to be its strengths:

According to the MarketScape:

“The Prevalent platform is designed to support client TPRM needs from vendor assessments and onboarding through vendor termination. With the expansion into non-IT risk domains, the Prevalent platform became significantly more comprehensive.”

“Prevalent's strengths stem from thoughtful design of the solution and from their unique in-house capabilities including managed services and ratings. As discussed, by offering managed services internally, Prevalent customers are able to deftly move back and forth between a managed service offering and independently running the platform. This opens a door for clients to bring in the extra support as needed without a sense of long-term commitment. This flexibility is a key differentiator of the Prevalent offering.”

“The managed services component is also enhanced with Prevalent's in-house rating capabilities. Prevalent differentiates by combining assessments and ratings to provide a complete vendor profile. Prevalent customers have access to 10,000+shared third-party security, privacy and business resilience risk assessments which they can leverage and customize by applying multipliers, adjust by region, and augment with specific questions. In-house intelligence is also supplemented with partner feeds including Modern Slavery statements, Corruption Perception Index (CPI) scores, Health & Safety events, and ESG scorings and EPA eco violations database.”

“This leadership positioning in the first ever third-party risk management IDC MarketScape is a huge testament to the investments we made to benefit customers in innovation, customer success, and managed services,” said Kevin Hickey, CEO of Prevalent. “With the onslaught of third-party data breaches, supply chain disruptions and new regulatory requirements, third-party risk management solutions must evolve rapidly. Prevalent customers not only identify risks faster but dramatically reduce manual work with the most comprehensive and the only unified TPRM solution available.”
