If you've been asked to register with Prevalent, it means that you're a third-party or an internal department of a Prevalent customer who will ask you to complete a survey (or surveys) as part of an auditing process. Here’s how to register for an account to complete and submit surveys.

How much does it cost?
There is no cost for vendors to complete assessments requested by your customers. Your customers purchase licenses that enable them to assess a certain number of vendors. If you are interested in completing a self-assessment, please check out our Third-Party Marketplace.
How long will it take to complete an assessment?
That’s a hard question to answer, since there are many factors that go into the third-party risk management lifecycle. A good rule of thumb is about two weeks, depending on the length of the survey.
Who owns my content in the Prevalent platform?
You, the vendor, owns your content in the Prevalent platform. You have the power to update your content, launch additional self-assessments, share content with others, or not share any content at all.
Who can see my content in the Prevalent platform?
Readily available vendor content, including completed and submitted standard questionnaires and associated evidence, is stored in our secure repository. This is viewable only by the company requesting the assessment, or by Prevalent if your customer has outsourced the collection to us. Vendors who complete and submit the standard questionnaire responses and associated evidence are allowing the requesting customer and/or Prevalent to apply risk management and assurance.
Do you share my data?
No, not unless you expressly approve your questionnaire responses and associated evidence to be shared with organizations aside from your customer or Prevalent.
Do you sell my data?
No. Never, under any circumstance, will we sell your data.
Is my data secure?
Yes. Prevalent assesses the software and service providers used in the operation and support of our applications using our own technology. We provide our own completed SIG responses within the Prevalent platform, as well as third-party security assurance documentation of our suppliers (as applicable), and documentation of policy, procedure, and technical artifacts as necessary.
Share one self-assessment with all of your customers!
The Prevalent Third-Party Marketplace enables vendors, suppliers and service providers to eliminate the reactive, redundant and manual labor involved in responding to customer security assessments.
