Apptega Introduces New Solution to Accurately Assess Vendor Cybersecurity and Compliance Practices

Innovative new solution expands the leading cybersecurity and compliance platform by eliminating the guesswork for vendor cybersecurity analysis 

ATLANTA, GA – September 16, 2022 Apptega, a leading platform helping companies easily build, manage and report their cybersecurity and compliance programs, today announced the newest addition to their product suite – Apptega Vendor Risk Manager. With the power of Vendor Risk Manager, organizations are now able to accurately assess the cybersecurity and compliance standards of all vendors so they can clearly understand the potential impact on their operations.  

Vendor Risk Manager enables the automation and simplification of all the steps an organization should take to evaluate and understand its vendors' cybersecurity and compliance practices.  

Currently, organizations are still tackling vendor risk management using spreadsheets and static word processing documents, lacking the visibility they need to accurately understand potential risks from vendors and the impact those risks could have on their organization.

“Companies of all sizes have a multitude of vendors who can bring potential compliance risks to their business, says Armistead Whitney, CEO of Apptega. “Apptega’s users and their partners can now ditch their spreadsheets and data rooms and collaborate within a single platform to quickly and easily assess their vendors’ cybersecurity compliance.”  

With Vendor Risk Manager you can:   

  • Create, manage, and send questionnaires to all of your vendors 
  • Associate questionnaires with vendor contacts 
  • Create and manage custom framework-specific questionnaire templates 
  • Quickly access and manage vendor responses 
  • Ensure questionnaire consistency for all vendors 
  • Evaluate vendor security and compliance standards to ensure alignment with your organization’s standards and expectations 
  • Fully customize questionnaire templates—build it once, use it as often as you need it
  • Flag risks within the questionnaire responses and ability to see these risks in a new Vendor Risk Dashboard 
  • Send updated questionnaires as needed to ensure vendors meet security requirements throughout the length of your engagement 
  • Compare vendor data against other business-critical security information within a single dashboard 
  • Align vendor practices with industry-recognized security and compliance frameworks 
  • Enable custom scoring for your questionnaires so you can accurately assess the security threshold of your vendors 
  • Easily share information and reports with your executives and key stakeholders 

Official software release coming in late September.
