Published on May 10, 2016
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS — Lockpath®, a leader in governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that the company has been recognized in Gartner, Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management (IT VRM).
Lockpath was one of twelve vendors evaluated in the Gartner report, which was published April 28, 2016, by analysts Christopher Ambrose, Joanne Spencer and Edward Arthur Weinstein. The report, which aims to help organizations evaluate IT VRM software solutions, recognized Lockpath’s Keylight Platform as a challenger in the space.
Keylight integrates the full vendor lifecycle into daily GRC processes and includes capabilities for information gathering, due diligence investigation, risk assessments, contract negotiation, ongoing monitoring and termination workflows. This holistic approach, coupled with Keylight’s patented Dynamic Content Framework™ and advanced reporting and analytics capabilities, supports a risk-based and proactive program for IT VRM.
“IT service providers and vendors are extensions of an organization and their actions can have a direct impact on compliance efforts and brand reputation,” said Chris Caldwell, Chief Executive Officer at Lockpath. “This recognition further demonstrates its growing significance. Keylight is designed to accurately assess, identify and remediate risks, including third parties, and we are thrilled to be included in this year’s Magic Quadrant.”
