According to the Gartner report, “IT vendor risk management tools automate the vendor risk management life cycle, track third-party risk, and facilitate regulatory compliance.”

“Attackers are increasingly targeting vendor ecosystems. Recent incidents have shown that even one vendor breach incident can have catastrophic impact on the organization. Safeguarding your organization against vendor risk is not only critical to success but is a competitive advantage,” said Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer, MetricStream. “We are honored to be named a Leader, as it validates our ability to help customers manage, embrace and thrive on risk.”

As new, high-impact risks continue to emerge and grow increasingly interconnected, an enterprise’s ability to succeed depends on how effectively it can understand and manage the full spectrum of risks across enterprise, operational, compliance, vendor, IT & cyber security, reputation, and ESG. Third parties and fourth parties such as vendors, suppliers, and contractors represent a significant source of risk, exposing organizations to different types of risks. Managing vendor risk and compliance is essential to staying ahead of these challenges and powering what’s next.
