Latest Report: The 2022 Gartner® Market Guide for IT Vendor Risk Management Solutions
Identify, assess, analyze, remediate, and continuously monitor vendor information security, operational, and data privacy risks
Major network, data and privacy breaches are traced to IT solution vendors and service providers on an almost daily basis. However, many organizations still rely on manual, spreadsheet-based methods for their IT vendor risk assessment and compliance initiatives. This leaves critical gaps in risk visibility, complicates reporting, and increases costs.
The Prevalent Third-Party Risk Management Platform enables organizations to stay ahead of information security and cybersecurity risks. Our customers centralize and automate IT vendor risk assessment, continuous monitoring, analysis and remediation – while efficiently mapping the results to common IT security control frameworks and compliance requirements.
Backed by expert managed services and a vendor intelligence network, the Prevalent platform delivers the automation, visibility, and scale required to effectively reduce risk and meet compliance requirements at every stage of the IT vendor lifecycle.
Automate the collection, analysis, and scoring of vendor IT controls data with a centralized, workflow-driven platform and/or expert managed services
