Risk professionals are taking another look at customer-centric Governance, Risk and Compliance platforms to address top challenges like IT risk management, GDPR and business continuity.

SAI Global, a leading provider of integrated risk management solutions has been recognized as a leader by independent analyst research firm Forrester Research Inc., in The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms, Q1 2018 report released today.

The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms, Q1 2018 is one of the industry’s most thorough and detailed analyses, based on briefings, demonstrations, customer surveys, interviews and analyst access to demo environments of each vendor’s product. Vendors are rated on 23 criteria that cover current offering, strategy and market presence.

“We believe our recognition as a Leader is a strong validation of the strategic direction we are delivering across the portfolio and the urgency with which this market is moving toward an integrated approach to risk management,” said Peter Granat, CEO at SAI Global. “There is a palpable energy in the GRC market at the moment. After years of vendor stagnation, risk professionals are once again seeking trusted partners and are investing in GRC.”

Organizations today are facing new and disruptive threats and regulations, with the ongoing challenges of cybersecurity, data privacy, compliance and the need to protect reputations. At the same time, organizations need to maintain a competitive advantage, revenue growth and consumer trust. With the highest ratings possible in the Forrester report in the strategy category (5/5) and end-user experience criteria (5/5), SAI Global believes it is positioned to work with organizations to meet these challenges, but also accelerate the opportunities that an integrated approach to managing risk provides.

According to the Forrester Wave™ report, “with diverse use cases in case management, healthcare, and GDPR, the additions of IT GRC and business continuity round out the [SAI Global] platform as a single point of governance and compliance capabilities in the enterprise.”
