Vendor Risk Management Solutions

Managing third-party risk is a critical issue for all companies due to regulations and cyber threats. Every new, third-party relationship introduces business risk - regulatory, financial, security or reputational. This leaves many companies managing this risk with manual, highly inefficient processes can create its own risks. Other companies have an automated process but are bogged down with inflexible, legacy GRC systems. What's needed is a smart, efficient and comprehensive platform that automates the full lifecycle of risk management processes and frees up employees to focus on analytics, insights and true management of vendor risk.
