SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), the leading digital workflow company making the world work better for everyone, has been named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) Platforms, Q2 2022.
According to the report, “Two years ago, most businesses managed third-party risk because they had to for regulatory compliance. It only took a global pandemic, ongoing disruption of global supply chains, an underestimated geopolitical event, and major cyberattacks on software vendors responsible for critical infrastructure, for firms to comprehend the significant role those third-party relationships play in their success and resilience. If their vendors, suppliers, partners, affiliates, or subsidiaries experience a breach, attack, or disruptive event, it’s only a matter of time before the consequences impact their firm, customers, and bottom line.”
ServiceNow’s Vendor Risk Management solution is a key component of its integrated risk and compliance portfolio and ESG solutions. It can transform the way organizations manage the entire third-party and supply chain risk lifecycle by instituting standardized, automated, and transparent processes for risk assessments, due diligence, and ongoing monitoring of third parties, such as suppliers, business partners, and vendors.
“Supply chain disruptions, increased port congestion, and manufacturing delays were all exacerbated by the pandemic. Today, enterprises continue to increase their reliance on suppliers, vendors, and external partners to meet changing market demands,” said Vasant Balasubramanian, VP and GM of Risk and ESG at ServiceNow. “Third-party risk and supply chain visibility have been elevated to board-level discussions as a vendor’s cybersecurity, financial, ESG, reputational, or other risks can directly impact the organization’s own risk posture and, in turn, their bottom line. With ServiceNow Vendor Risk Management, we help our customers gain critical insight into their third parties’ potential risk, automate their risk mitigation processes and workflows, and monitor their suppliers across the entire vendor lifecycle to drive supply chain resilience and organizational success.”
