Vendor Risk Management

Expose your weakest links and defend your business against risk.

More than half of all breaches result from third-party vendors

Regardless of your security standards, vendors can be your weakest link. When third parties have access to your business, their security gaps become yours.

Vendefense allows you to identify vendors and focus on those that present the most risk to your organization.
