Riskonnect announced today that research and advisory firm Forrester Research, Inc. (NASDAQ: FORR) has named global Integrated Risk Management vendor Riskonnect a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk, And Compliance Platforms, Q1 2018.  

The report, the most rigorous and influential source of vendor reviews for corporate governance, risk management and compliance buyers worldwide, is based on a 23-criteria evaluation, briefings, demos, customer surveys and interviews.

Forrester assessed the GRC vendor landscape and invited only 14 vendors to participate. In its debut within the report, Riskonnect achieved a Leader designation, which only six other vendors in the evaluation received. Criteria for selection and scoring included the vendors’ ability to support a wide range of GRC capabilities, requirements and use cases as well as their market presence and relevance.

“Riskonnect built its GRC offering on the Force.com platform, which in essence means the engineers of Salesforce actively work to develop and maintain the product’s underlying capabilities. Among many benefits, this means Riskonnect GRC includes support for 72 languages, strong workflow, and extensive dashboarding and reporting,” stated the Forrester report. “Riskonnect is an appealing option for Salesforce.com users and deserves a look on its own for its solid GRC capabilities.”

Riskonnect earned the highest possible score in the following criteria: End User Experience, Risk and Control Management, Integration Capabilities, Organizational Context, Document Management, Input/Output, Distribution and Communication and Language Support.

“We believe this report further validates Riskonnect’s ability to consolidate and integrate risk management solutions to reduce costs and enhance client value,” said Roger Dunkin, Riskonnect’s co-founder and vice president of development. “We believe Forrester recognized the value our platform brings to organizations in every industry and around the world.”
