Scale resources and optimize the third-party management lifecycle

Decrease time spent on day-to-day processes by leveraging external risk data and intelligent assessments to automate third-party tiering and guide workflow severity and evaluation depth.

  • Access risk ratings and critical information on over 125k third parties to gain immediate insights into your third parties’ risk posture
  • Integrate ethics and compliance screening data from Dow Jones through our Third-Party Due Diligence solution

Embrace continuous monitoring for faster risk response 

Risk assessments and questionnaires are essential to understanding the threats that third parties pose to your organization. But point-in-time assessments often miss the dynamic nature of threats and vulnerabilities posed by your third parties. Real-time risk monitoring allows you to track shifts in third-party relationships and react quickly to changes in risk profiles.

  • Actively monitor third parties across critical risk domains and compliance databases
  • Automate response actions as new risks arise by creating triggers to notify stakeholders, flag risks, and kick off dynamic reassessments
  • Track and respond to critical events across the third-party lifecycle (renewal, changes in scope, or handling of mergers and acquisitions)

As your third-party network grows and regulations become more complex, it's critical to automate onboarding processes. Our dynamic workflows empower procurement and operations teams to make informed decisions promptly, involving the appropriate stakeholders. Intelligent assessments tailor and adjust questionnaires based on responses, asking only relevant questions to third parties. Combined with automatic risk flagging, this drastically reduces onboarding time and effort. 

Business disruption due to unexpected third-party incidents, like data breaches, can cause reputational risk and negative impacts to your bottom line. Our third-party management software allows you to build “if this then that” workflow triggers to respond to new risks as they arise. Real-time monitoring, reporting, and response automation workflows empower you to take decisive, pre-planned action when disruptive events occur.  Ultimately, this creates a more efficient vendor risk management process and supports business resilience. 

The regulatory landscape is constantly evolving. While we encourage our customers to view their TPRM program as a strategic business asset rather than just a compliance obligation, we acknowledge the significance of industry and regulatory frameworks. Our third-party risk management software is designed to help you keep up with the latest changes and adjust your program accordingly with the help of out-of-the-box templates. A few common considerations include – 

  • GDPR
  • ISO 27001
  • NIST Cybersecurity Framework
  • Shared Assessments Standardized Information Gathering (SIG) Questionnaire
