Independent Research Firm Cites Protiviti As A 'Strong Performer' In Governance, Risk And Compliance Platforms

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Protiviti ( www.protiviti.com), a global consulting firm, was named a Strong Performer in "The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk, and Compliance Platforms, Q1 2014." According to the report, Protiviti "is most relevant in the GRC market because of the combination of its technical offerings and its breadth of consulting capabilities; however, the company's GRC platform is a worthy competitor in its own right." The report also notes that Protiviti "has shown ongoing improvement in product capabilities, vertical solutions, and content developed internally and with partners."

According to the Forrester Research, Inc. report, the vendors included in the Forrester Wave have capabilities to support a wide range of GRC use cases, substantial market presence, and relevance to the market. Forrester's report also includes additional weightings based on some common initial GRC implementations:

  • Corporate compliance, environmental compliance, and social responsibility
  • IT GRC and third-party risk management
  • Financial controls and operational risk

Forrester notes that some vendors' offerings "rise significantly higher" when using different weightings.

"We believe that a Strong Performer rating in this year's Forrester Wave reflects our on-going success in improving and enhancing our GRC platform to solve our customers' real-world needs," said Scott Wisniewski, managing director, Risk Technologies, Protiviti. "I also believe that the key to this success has been our constant focus on meeting a core need in the marketplace, which is supporting our clients' enterprise assurance programs."

Protiviti's Governance Portal, which was evaluated by Forrester, is a flexible technology solution that provides the visibility and oversight organizations need to manage enterprise and operational risks, optimize internal audit processes, monitor compliance risk, reduce the cost of financial controls management and improve IT governance.
