Rsam Cited as a Leader in Governance, Risk, & Compliance Platforms by Leading Independent Research Firm

Rsam Achieves Highest Scores Possible for "Risk and Control Management" and "Workflow Management" Categories

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwired - January 28, 2014) - Rsam, the industry-leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) platforms, today announced that it has been recognized by Forrester Research, Inc. as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk, And Compliance Platforms, Q1 2014.1 Rsam was recognized for "strong commitment to product development and innovation" and also achieved the highest score possible in the categories of risk and control management and workflow management.

For this report, Forrester considered over 50 vendors that market GRC capabilities and then evaluated 19 of the most relevant GRC platforms in the marketplace against 43 criteria, including the strength of their current offering, market presence, and strategy. Rsam was cited as a Leader with "terrific integration and workflow capabilities," and a "flexible, intuitive platform."

"Unlike in previous years in which Forrester published distinct enterprise GRC and IT GRC Forrester Waves, this report compared all of the top GRC Platform vendors, regardless of their primary target markets. This reflects growing customer interest in consolidated platforms, and vendor successes that frequently span traditional boundaries." The evaluation process also included actual use of all the reviewed products.

Additionally, the report reveals that 44% of customer organizations surveyed indicated they owned more than one GRC platform. But for all the growth and maturity of the GRC platform market, organizations will be pressed to make decisions about "whether to consolidate multiple applications into a single platform, and how to successfully roll out their program to build business success." 

"We are delighted to be cited as a Leader by Forrester for our GRC platform," said Kevin Day, CTO of Rsam. "The strength and flexibility of the platform to support the diverse use cases of our expanding customer base is core to our strategy and roadmap."

"GRC has been a fragmented space with a dizzying number of "me-too" vendors jumping on bandwagon. I believe that this is the first comprehensive research to combine IT GRC and eGRC into a single report, measured by common criteria," said Vivek Shivananda, CEO of Rsam. "This is exactly the type of research that the industry needs."
