Both UpGuard and Whistic offer solutions for assessing vendor security and reducing third-party risks. A detailed comparison of the Vendor Risk Management capabilities of each solution is outlined below.
Whistic is based in Salt Lake City, Utah and aims to help companies hold each other accountable for protecting their shared data. Customers can use Whistic's workflows to conduct security reviews and respond to security reviews in one platform.
Whistic expedites the risk assessment process by making vendor security information available to prospective partners through its Whistic Trust Catalog. Their platform has tools to help you onboard, assess, and track vendors by allowing you to compare third parties against a set of predefined criteria based on vendor questionnaires, documentation, and metadata.
Vendors can assess themselves against one of the top vendor questionnaires and publish it to their profile, along with supporting documentation, including audits and certifications. These profiles can be made available to existing and prospective business partners to expedite the risk assessment process.
