CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and CONCORD, Mass., Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BitSight, the Standard in Security Ratings, and ProcessUnity, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for risk management, today announced a technology partnership to embed BitSight’s proprietary security rating capabilities within ProcessUnity’s cloud-based third-party risk management solution.

Integrating BitSight ratings into ProcessUnity’s vendor risk automation system provides customers with additional actionable insights into the cyber risk of third and fourth parties.

“Organizations of all sizes need additional visibility into the potential risks posed by third parties,” said Todd Boehler, Vice President of Product Strategy at ProcessUnity. “With access to BitSight Security Ratings, ProcessUnity customers gain continuous monitoring capabilities that ensure third parties are following through on their security obligations every day — not just during an annual assessment.”

Gartner estimates that by 2020, 75% of Fortune Global 500 companies will treat vendor risk management as a board-level initiative to mitigate brand and reputation risk. ProcessUnity Vendor Cloud is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that identifies and remediates risks posed by third-party service providers. The cloud-based solution automates key phases of the vendor risk management lifecycle from initial onboarding and due diligence, through ongoing assessments, service-level agreements (SLAs) and contract management.

“To proactively mitigate risk, organizations need automated tools that continuously measure and monitor the security performance of vendors,” said Jacob Olcott, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, BitSight. “ProcessUnity customers using BitSight’s ratings data can protect their brand integrity and revenue by continuously validating the security risk profile of their third-party business partners.”
