The Magic Quadrant names 16 key solution vendors identified by Gartner as offering vendor risk management (VRM) solutions.
VRM solutions enable organisations to accurately ascertain the security and compliance risks associated with their IT third-parties, creating a centralised register of these parties and integrating this with wider risk management processes.
Richard Hibbert, CEO and Co-Founder at SureCloud, said: “We are delighted that SureCloud has been included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools; we believe it underlines our ability to offer a truly comprehensive third-party risk management solution.”
“Our flexible, scalable and highly configurable software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model, combined with managed service options, is proving particularly attractive to organisations looking to build a robust, central view of their vendor assurance program.”
Third-party risk management is a vital part of any organisation’s cybersecurity posture, with many third parties having access to highly sensitive data and offering criminals a potential route into their organisations. Demonstrating a clear awareness of each third party’s approach to security and risk management is also an increasingly significant element of privacy regulations such as the GDPR.
In response, SureCloud’s Vendor Risk Management solution is designed to offer a smooth and scalable means for organisations to assess and review all their IT third party vendors for potential risks.
