Questions about Vendor Risk Management and ProcessBolt? We have the answers for you here.  If you still have more questions, feel free to contact us at info@processbolt.com. Or simply fill out our contact form


Vendor risk management (VRM) is the process of identifying, monitoring, analyzing, and remediating risks and vulnerabilities created by your third-party vendors and service providers.  Why is vendor risk management so important? It helps your organization identify and alleviate any negative impact that may affect your cybersecurity posture, customer data safeguards, regulatory compliance, and overall industry reputation. A robust VRM program ensures that you can minimize the impact of vendor security, reputational or any other adverse incidences on your own organization.

In terms of vendor risk management, due diligence is the comprehensive steps taken to protect an organization from a third-party breach. In the event of a breach, your organization must show due diligence, meaning that it took the necessary precautions to protect the entity, but the breach still occurred.

Build a comprehensive cybersecurity program for your business that includes (but is not limited to) a vendor risk management platform, continuous monitoring of your network and systems, documented policies, and procedures for protecting data, and security awareness training for all employees.

When your sales team is trying to sell your services, often a third-party assessment will be requested. These can slow the sales cycle down to a crawl. Often RFPs are cancelled if the sales cycle is too lengthy. With an automated vendor risk management system, assessments can be completed quickly and efficiently, allowing for a faster sales cycle.

ThreatScape is an Attack Surface Management and Security Rating System that provides customers with real-time insight about their own and their vendors’ internet-facing posture on a continuous basis, providing actionable insight to improve their security posture. In addition, the AI algorithms automatically correlate a vendor’s internet-facing attack surface data with their assessment responses to present an accurate picture of a vendor’s security gaps. ThreatScape offers an easy-to-use visual dashboard displaying how an enterprise and its vendors are performing over time.

ThreatScape shows you exactly how a hacker views the gaps in your environment as well as your vendors’ environments. By identifying and closing these gaps, you’re strengthening your security posture against hackers.

Yes, customers can share ThreatScape reports with their vendors to create a productive dialogue and help remediate issues as they arise in real time.

As a vendor, you want the most secure environment possible. Vendors who use ThreatScape dramatically increase the security of their systems and data, thus proving their due diligence to potential buyers.
