Modulo Named as a Visionary in Inaugural Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for IT Risk Management


ATLANTA----Modulo, a leading provider of technology governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced it has been recognized as a Visionary by Gartner, Inc. in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for IT Risk Management (ITRM) report.1 Modulo was selected as one of the 11 vendors evaluated in the inaugural Magic Quadrant report for this growing market and was positioned highest in Ability to Execute in the Visionary Quadrant.

“This year marks Modulo’s 30th birthday as an independent security risk management solution provider. Today, thousands of customers globally rely on our GRC automation software to improve IT Risk Management and reporting”

This recognition follows on Modulo’s announcement of dramatic growth in North America for 2014 with 200% year-over-year growth in sales bookings, including dozens of new customers spanning a variety of private industry verticals including banks, insurance, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, higher education, consumer goods manufacturing, high tech manufacturing, and retail.

"This year marks Modulo’s 30th birthday as an independent security risk management solution provider. Today, thousands of customers globally rely on our GRC automation software to improve IT Risk Management and reporting,” said Stephen Gant, Managing Director, International, for Modulo. “IT Risk Management is Modulo’s core competency. We have a proven ability to execute, a commitment to customer satisfaction, and a best-value offering for the market. We are honored to be part of this important research from Gartner and are committed to providing GRC automation solutions to support the increasingly high-profile work of the next generation of security professionals, CSOs, CISOs, Privacy Officers and Digital Risk Officers.”

In the report, Gartner VP Distinguished Analyst Paul Proctor defines IT risk management as a core competency for governance, risk, and compliance programs. Organizations with appropriate maturity can use these products to automate effective IT risk management processes.

Gartner finds that “ITRM software applications are becoming increasingly important because of the growing need for organizations to meet compliance and regulatory requirements and the desire to avoid severe punishment from regulators. This is especially true in North America and Europe, and is the primary reason for the increase in technology maturity.”

As part of the study, Gartner gathered 153 references for ITRM implementations. The data on deployment models, license choice and size informs buyers on the trends in the marketplace.

The report evaluated version 8.4 of the Modulo Risk Manager™ GRC software platform. Designed by IT risk managers for IT risk managers, Risk Manager was the first software in the world certified ISO27001. Today, the powerful Risk Manager software seamlessly integrates security risk programs including third-party vendor and supplier risk; enterprise risk; physical security risk; business continuity; infrastructure risk, and, of course, IT risk. All risk assessment workflow logic is based on the ISO standard for enterprise risk management.

With Risk Manager, technology and information security professionals get the tools they need to integrate and harmonize risk scores from scanners, security controls, policies and regulations; generate bottom-up reports with risk indicators for increased visibility, automate tedious control checking, streamline workflow, and more. Dashboards and reports allow executives and stakeholders to quickly access and customize the information they need regarding ongoing projects. Risk Manager includes one of the industry’s most extensive knowledge libraries of 800 knowledge bases, 53,000 controls and 268 compliance frameworks.

Modulo Risk Manager is widely recognized as the best value in the market, defined by price, time to deployment and total cost of ownership. It is offered as a SaaS, on-premise or perpetual-licensed solution. SaaS packages start as low as $18,750 and are deployed in as little as 30 days. First-year maintenance and training are included in the license price for new customers.

Modulo was also recently recognized in four other recent Gartner Magic Quadrant reports: Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Management (ORM) published December 15, 20142; Gartner’s inaugural Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management (VRM) report published October 29, 20143; Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Planning (BCMP) Software report published August 27, 20144; and as a representative vendor in Gartner’s Market Guide for Audit Management Solutions published December 24, 20145.
