Aravo Named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools

Aravo Believes Its Leader Placement Demonstrates Strong Vision and Risk Domain Expertise

(San Francisco) – September 2, 2021. Aravo, the leading provider of intelligent automation for third-party risk and resilience, today announced that it has been recognized by Gartner as a Leader in the 2021 Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools. Aravo believes that its Leader placement is a testament to the company’s unparalleled expertise in risk management, delivering a solution with broad coverage across supplier, IT vendor, and third-party risks.

Gartner defines IT vendor risk management (IT VRM) as the discipline of addressing the residual risk that businesses and governments face when working with IT vendors. The scope is often extended beyond IT vendors to include other third parties that access, provide or manage sensitive data, connect to a customer’s systems or networks, or support critical business processes.

“We believe that being named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant validates the power of the Aravo platform and our continued innovations that help clients address evolving risks, strengthen organizational resilience, and better capitalize on emerging opportunities,” said Michael Saracini, CEO at Aravo. “Aravo is extremely proud of our accomplishments, strong market traction, and expanding customer base. We are also grateful for the customer partnerships we have with many of the world’s most respected brands, who also contribute to our innovation and success.”
