Sponsored by Businesswire

NAVEX Global®, a Leader in integrated risk and compliance
management solutions, has been recognized in Gartner Inc.’s report, Critical
Capabilities for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools
published on December 19, 2019 and authored by Christopher Ambrose and
Joanne Spencer.

This report is related to the November 2019 report, Magic Quadrant
for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools
2, and is an
independent document for security and risk management professionals
interested exclusively in Vendor Risk Management (VRM) offerings.

According to the report, “IT vendor risk management (VRM) continues to
increase in importance as sourcing, procurement, vendor management, risk
and security leaders look to improve their response to increasing
regulations, program efficiency and residual vendor risks.”

The report also states that, “although regulatory compliance,
cybersecurity, information security, data protection and privacy are top
vendor threats and risks, customers are increasingly interested in
solutions that address a wide range of vendor threats and risks that can
impact business operations, brand and reputation.”

NAVEX Global’s Lockpath Platform is a fully integrated suite of
solutions that streamline and strengthen organizations’ vendor security,
compliance and risk management processes. Lockpath allows organizations
to integrate and address both strategic and IT vendor risks for a more
efficient, effective and agile program.

“Understanding and managing the risks associated with third-party
vendors is a growing and increasingly complex challenge for
organizations of all sizes across every industry,” said Bob Conlin,
NAVEX Global’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe
Gartner’s latest research validates our holistic, integrated approach to
vendor risk management, and we are pleased to be recognized in this most
recent Critical Capabilities report.”
