Vendor Risk Assessment Services

Leave your vendor risk assessments to us, so you can focus on what matters

Prevalent™ Vendor Risk Assessment Services provide managed services to handle your third-party risk assessment and monitoring needs. Our Risk Operations Center (ROC) manages the vendor lifecycle on your behalf – from onboarding vendors and collecting evidence, to reviewing assessments for completeness, identifying risks, and providing remediation guidance. As a result, you reduce vendor risk and simplify compliance without burdening internal staff.

Key Benefits

  • Improve efficiency and productivity by focusing on managing risk, rather than on collecting vendor evidence

  • Leverage domain expertise from a team of certified third-party risk professionals

  • Gain comprehensive visibility into risk remediation efforts

  • Realize a faster time-to-value from your risk reduction initiatives

“Prevalent really cares, and the ROC team is exceedingly responsive. Sometimes when you deal with a large company, you’re just a number. With Prevalent, we don’t feel like that at all. They are a stakeholder in our success.”

— Information Security Advisory Services Manager, Global Insurance Company
