Vendor Information Security & Cybersecurity Assessment

Assess and continuously monitor your vendors and suppliers for information security and cybersecurity risks

A recent Prevalent survey revealed that 45% of companies experienced a third-party IT security incident in the last year, and 25% of those resulted in lost customers, reduced revenue, reputational fallout, or increased costs to remediate and recover.

Most organizations understand that they need to proactively assess their third-party vendor and supplier IT security controls. However, many use static spreadsheets that require constant manual vendor chasing, don't align with common IT control frameworks, and don't offer scoring, reporting, or remediation guidance.

The Prevalent Third-Party Risk Management Platform automates the assessment, continuous monitoring, analysis, and remediation of third-party IT security risks – while automatically mapping results to common IT security control frameworks such as NIST and ISO. As a result of this increased visibility, our customers effectively reduce third-party risk and streamline compliance initiatives.

Key Benefits

  • Automate the collection of IT controls data and supporting evidence with a centralized, workflow-driven platform

  • Simplify compliance by instantly mapping assessment results to common IT control frameworks and generating relevant reports

  • Identify new and emerging vendor and supplier IT risks with continuous cybersecurity monitoring

  • Streamline risk reduction and mitigation with built-in remediation guidance
