MENLO PARK, Calif., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Protiviti (www.protiviti.com), a global consulting firm, was among the select companies that Forrester included in its report "The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk, And Compliance Platforms, Q1 2016." In this evaluation, Protiviti had a 5.0 score (out of 5.0 possible) in the Support for GRC Roles category. Protiviti's other individual highest scores were for the Product Vision and Strategy, Audit Management, and Customer References categories.
According to the report, "Organizations face threats in all aspects of their business, and ad hoc management of those crises leaves them more vulnerable to impacts to their revenue and their reputations. Only through a holistic view of risk can organizations adequately prepare for such events and mitigate the potential damage." The report also stated that the Protiviti Governance Portal is "a stable platform serving many industries" while referencing that "the company has been leveraging SharePoint to create workflow and customizations for the midmarket to complement its substantial consulting advisory services."
"Our clients appreciate that we can help them implement configurable, cost-effective GRC technology through our Governance Portal as well as help them more effectively use their existing technology, including other third-party GRC platforms and SharePoint," said Scott Wisniewski, managing director, Risk Technologies, Protiviti. "This independent approach provides clients with the insight they need to weigh all their options and a unique breadth of capability to confidently implement the most useful technology at the right price based on program maturity and their existing infrastructure."
The Governance Portal is a comprehensive software platform that integrates content and commonly accepted and proprietary frameworks with world-class consulting expertise in order to provide organizations with the visibility and insight needed to manage and mitigate current and future risk and compliance issues. Protiviti's expert consultants have worked with thousands of global clients, and the Governance Portal has the built-in knowledge needed to deliver targeted GRC software solutions that address immediate needs while facilitating convergence toward synergistic, value-added GRC practices.
