CORL Technologies Receives 2014 GRC Technology Innovation Award by Independent Analyst Firm GRC 20/20

CORL Technologies, a leading provider of Vendor Security Risk Management (VSRM) solutions, today announced that its flagship product has been honored with a 2014 GRC Technology Innovation Award by independent GRC analyst firm GRC 20/20. The third annual GRC Technology Innovation Awards recognize technologies that are revolutionizing the Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) market.

Over the years GRC technology has evolved and changed. The GRC Technology Innovation Awards process for 2014 recognizes this evolution and represented the most competitive pool of applicants to date. Fifteen technologies were selected out of 62 applicants after being carefully evaluated for their innovation.

“CORL has demonstrated innovation in GRC by changing the paradigm for managing vendor risk,” said Michael Rasmussen, Chief GRC Pundit for GRC 20/20 and internationally recognized expert. “There were many deserving applicants and I am excited to see this overall level of innovation driving the industry forward. The awards were given to those technologies that are delivering something truly unique, game changing, and revolutionary and are most likely to impact the GRC space over the next year.”

In his third annual GRC Technology Innovation Awards blog, Rasmussen adds, “Third-party breaches and regulations are increasing drastically, but effective third-party security risk management is expensive, time consuming, and resource intensive. As a result, many organizations have programs that do not provide full coverage, or provide a false sense of security. Corl’s vendorsecurityRM provides organizations with the information they need to effectively focus their vendor due diligence efforts on those vendors who present the most risk.”
