PHOENIX, August 27, 2020Prevalent, Inc., the company that takes the pain out of third-party risk management (TPRM), today announced it has been named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools. Compared to the previous year, Prevalent has been recognized as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant based on Gartner’s criteria for completeness of vision and ability to execute, improving its position on both axes.

“We believe being named a Leader and having the strongest strategy among pure VRM providers further validates the strength of our vendor risk management approach,” said Kevin Hickey, CEO of Prevalent. “To us, being named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools clearly illustrates to us not only the hard work of our team, but also the dedication to delivering innovative solutions to our customers. As today’s pandemic continues to create more obstacles for the supply chain and an increase in malicious activity, it’s more important than ever for companies to implement a vendor risk management program that combines execution against today’s threats and a strong strategy for the future. Prevalent delivers fast time-to-value and deep VRM capabilities, helping companies mitigate today’s risks.”
