The challenge

InConsult was looking for a vendor risk management solution that they could easily deploy themselves as part of an integrated end-to-end cyber risk management service to their clients. The chosen solution needed to be easy to onboard and demonstrate immediate value to their clients.

Cyber security ratings and automated security questionnaires were both in their scope. InConsult was looking for a solution that combined both these capabilities as a single, easy-to-use product.

The solution

Over the past two years, UpGuard has been working closely with Tulin Sevgin, InConsult's Cyber Risk Management Lead. Tulin reached out to UpGuard to evaluate our Vendor Risk product.

UpGuard Vendor Risk continuously monitors vendor security performance, summarising each vendor’s profile in an easy-to-understand cyber security rating.

Even deeper coverage is provided by UpGuard’s security questionnaires module, which automates the often laborious workflows associated with questionnaires, clearly articulates the identified risks, and scores questionnaire responses as part of the vendor’s overall security rating.
