CyberGRX is excited to announce it has been named a Niche Player in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools. For the second year in a row, CyberGRX was recognized for its ability to execute and completeness of vision for its VRM solution. CyberGRX’s Exchange was designed to offer a specialized focus on cyber risk and challenge traditional approaches to vendor risk management.

The company was also named in Gartner’s 2020 Critical Capabilities Report for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools. Here, CyberGRX tied for first in scoring the highest points total for its assessment in the VRM Solution and Vendor Risk Assessment Data use case. This also marks the second year in a row that CyberGRX has ranked highest for this use case.

“We are excited to be part of both the Gartner IT VRM Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities reports again this year. We believe CyberGRX’s exclusive focus on cyber risk means we have the best cyber data available for organizations building and managing their third-party cyber risk,” said Fred Kneip, CEO of CyberGRX. “As more companies embrace digital transformation their reliance on third parties, such as cloud and IoT providers, continues to grow—and so does their cyber risk. We are encouraged to see more TPCRM solutions in the market, as evolving third-party cyber risks necessitate increasingly innovative answers for businesses.”

 With thousands of validated assessments, and a growing dataset from over 85,000 vendors, CyberGRX is committed to helping organizations effectively reduce third-party cyber risk with a data-first approach. The company’s focus on cyber risk enables organizations to specifically address a growing attack vector that is often second tier in broader VRM solutions. CyberGRX’s data-first approach challenges traditional approaches by arming users with the ability to identify, prioritize and benchmark risk, so they can actually reduce it. By delivering these insights CyberGRX enables organizations to confidently evolve with the modern digital era.

  • Surpassed 85,000 companies on the Exchange to include top technology and cloud solution providers, as well as legal, consulting, private equity, retail, and healthcare organizations
