Whistic Lands on Gartner's 2020 Magic Quadrant for the First Time

September 03, 2020

Whistic, the leader in proactive vendor security, landed on Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for the first time. 


Gartner’s "Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools" features Whistic as one of just 23 companies selected for this distinctive recognition. Given that Whistic’s focus is much broader than just vendor risk management (VRM), the placement in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is quite significant.

What Makes Whistic's Proactive Vendor Security Solution Stand Out?

When reviewing the Magic Quadrant, it’s sometimes tempting to view the companies in the top right as the best in the market. It’s important to realize, however, that niche players exist for a reason: they fill a critical market need. 

Whistic is incredibly pleased to be recognized by Gartner as an innovative player in the VRM market—something our customers have long recognized. It’s an important milestone. That said, vendor risk management is only a part of what we do. We also provide a market-leading vendor security offering for sellers (vendors), which we call Profile. Why? Because our customers deal with the complexities of working with third-parties when both buying and selling. That’s an important distinction, and why our approach to the market is so unique. 

The Whistic team spends time every day talking with companies like Matterport, Airbnb, and Zynga to understand their goals, needs, and challenges. We thoroughly understand the pain points and opportunities related to working with third-party vendors, from both the buyer and seller point of view. 

Whistic is a world-class SaaS platform, built around security questionnaires and corresponding workflows that helps our customers build trust and quickly navigate the process of vendor security.

In the vendor security space, Whistic:
  • Gives vendors the ability to create a Profile based on industry standard frameworks. It can also include supporting documentation such as audits and certifications.  
  • Enables customers to publish their profiles in the Whistic Trust Catalog® or on their company’s website for on-demand access, or share them directly and proactively with customers.
  • Integrates with services such as RiskRecon, FICO, and BitSight. Information from these respected intelligence sources is visible alongside vendor-published data.


Whistic's Bright Path Forward

Following closely on the heels of our $12M Series A funding announcement earlier this summer, Whistic is in an incredible position to keep momentum strong—and we’re just getting started.
