SureCloud Named a Challenger in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for IT Risk Management


We’re proud that SureCloud has been named a Challenger in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for IT Risk Management for the second consecutive year, based on its Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.


We believe that this report from Gartner, one of the most respected analyst organisations in the world, stands testament to our truly comprehensive suite of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, commitment to customers, and continuous innovation.

Gartner defines IT Risk Management products as solutions that “manage and automate IT compliance, assess the organisation’s cyber and IT risk posture, and inform business decisions.


In the report, Gartner evaluated 14 vendors in the market and recognised SureCloud for its IT & Cyber Risk Management solution. We believe that our strengths in integration support, clarity and simplicity of licensing, diverse risk assessment approaches, and continuous control monitoring capabilities contributed to our Challenger position.

Clarity and Simplicity of Licensing

SureCloud provides customers with everything they need, from licensing to support, implementation, and configuration services, for one flat annual fee. 


Customers benefit from a configurable solution throughout their subscription without having to secure budget increases or be blindsided by unexpected costs. Find out more about our secure license subscriptions.


Integration Support

Integrating IT GRC use cases with the surrounding IT infrastructure and services they are meant to govern is critical to any GRC solution. 


Through its Integration Hub, SureCloud can offer connectivity to almost any third-party system, satisfying and enhancing many use cases, from providing data into control testing to ensuring new suppliers and partners are adequately assessed and enriching risk assessment processes through external data feeds.


Diverse Risk Assessment Support

SureCloud is one of the few providers in the market offering a purpose-built solution for the Information Security Forum’s IRAM2 risk methodology. It also provides powerful out-of-the-box support for other risk assessment standards such as ISO 27005, ISO 31000, NIST 800-30, CIS RAM, PCI DSS and HIPAA. Out of the box, SureCloud is aligned with most IT Risk Management buyers’ preferences.


Continuous Control Monitoring

SureCloud software includes continuous monitoring features, such as automated analysis and trending of key risk indicators (KRIs) and control performance monitoring. In conjunction with SureCloud’s Integration Hub, which integrates external data sources, these indicators can be used to continuously monitor any critical risk or control and alert when thresholds are met or crossed.


Making the Case For an IT Risk Management Tool

Are you considering an IT Risk Management solution to support your internal risk processes? SureCloud’s broad solution set can help you cut across organisational siloes, integrate all IT risk data in a common framework for complete transparency, and ensure your risks are adequately tracked and monitored for better peace of mind.

Key Highlights:

  • Aligns your IT regulations and standards (ISO 27001, NIST CSF, etc.) and the underlying controls to reduce duplication and overlapping requirements
  • Delivers a real-time view of IT risks across the enterprise, ensuring that risk levels are acceptable and understood by business stakeholders
  • Enables you to demonstrate to members of the executive team how security initiatives are protecting business assets and services
  • Allows you to coordinate and track progress on IT risk and cyber activities, including program status, incident resolution, identification of control weaknesses, and remediation
