Aravo Positioned as Category Leader in 2021 Chartis RiskTech Quadrant for 3PRM Solutions

Third consecutive appearance as a Category Leader validates completeness of Aravo offering and market potential

(San Francisco) – August 11, 2021. Aravo, the leading provider of intelligent automation for third-party risk and performance management, today announced that, for the third time in a row, Chartis Research has named the company a Category Leader in its RiskTech Quadrant for Third-Party Risk Management (3PRM) Solutions. Category Leaders combine depth and breadth of functionality, technology, and content with the required organizational characteristics to capture significant share in their market.

According to the report, “3PRM is a rapidly growing segment of GRC, with varied technology and data requirements. As a general trend, elements of other risk management processes are being integrated into 3PRM – a logical move, considering that 3PRM covers exposure to a variety of risks (such as cyber risk, money laundering, etc.) that also affect a firm itself, as well as its third parties.”

“We’re proud that Chartis continues to recognize Aravo’s leadership in the 3PRM market,” said Michael Saracini, CEO at Aravo. “3PRM has always been a dynamic market, but the pandemic has really challenged organizations to better understand the resilience of their third parties and the impact on their business. Aravo has responded by making resilience one of the areas of innovation we’re focusing on in addition to market-leading 3PRM solutions.”

Soon after COVID-19 began to affect operations worldwide, Aravo released a ready-to-use application for supply chain resilience that helps organizations respond proactively when resilience risks are detected (e.g. weather, political unrest, biohazards, etc.) in their third party portfolios. Aravo for Supply Chain Resilience helps manage and mitigate risks and identify alternate suppliers when needed.

Another recent innovation is the introduction of a native artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) engine that organizations can use to automate processes, support decision making, and predict potential risks according to their risk appetites. Earlier this year, Aravo added out-of-the-box AI/ML decision support to its ready-to-use applications for third-party management, information security, anti-bribery/corruption, GDPR, financial services risk, and engagement risk. 

“If there’s one thing that COVID-19 has taught us, it’s that organizations must be aware of the resilience of their vendors, since these firms often fill vital functions that are impossible to substitute quickly,” said John MacDonagh, Research Specialist at Chartis Research. “Aravo’s Category Leader placement reflects its best-in-class third-party risk management solution, which received high ratings across all criteria for completeness of offering—data management, workflow and automation, continuous monitoring, compliance capabilities, reporting and visualization, and controls framework.”
