Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM)

The only purpose-built, unified platform for third-party vendor and supplier risk management

With cyber-attacks increasingly traced to third parties, privacy concerns driving new regulations, and disruptions impacting global supply chains, it’s critical to ensure that your vendors and suppliers have the controls and processes in place to protect your organization.

However, manually collecting, maintaining and analyzing data across an ever-expanding risk landscape is inefficient, error-prone and costly.

Prevalent simplifies and speeds risk reduction and compliance with our unified, automated Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) platform. The Prevalent TPRM platform is a SaaS solution that combines automated, standardized risk assessment with continuous risk monitoring, assessment workflow, and remediation management across the entire third-party lifecycle.

The Prevalent platform is complemented by vendor intelligence networks offering on-demand access to completed, standardized risk reports on thousands of companies. Our solutions are backed by expert professional services and managed services to help you optimize and mature your TPRM program.
