Ostendio Vendor Connect addresses vendor security and risk by allowing clients to invite vendors to create and maintain online records of their security and compliance readiness via assessments. The Ostendio platform handles over 115,000 user activities every month and supports more than 1,400 security assessments annually.

How we are different

The Ostendio integrated risk management platform stands out from the competition because:
1. It has a deeper reach - the platform is rolled out to and used by every employee, contractor, and support personnel, not just the security team. When everyone is involved in cybersecurity it is more meaningful to the organization.

2. It has a broader reach - Ostendio clients automatically become part of the Trust Network which allows them to connect with any other Ostendio client to send and receive security information. For example, Ostendio users send out vendor risk assessments with Vendor Connect and work with auditors using Auditor Connect. In each scenario, clients can send and receive sensitive data without ever having to leave their own instance.

3. It is more comprehensive - The Ostendio platform supports every aspect of an organization's cyber security program, from policy and procedures to asset management, risk management, learning management, incident management, training, and more. Essentially the platform can be used to build, operate and showcase every aspect of an organization's security and risk management program across more than 150 industry frameworks. It allows evidence to be crosswalked to multiple frameworks avoiding duplication of effort when applying for multiple compliance standards.

The Ostendio platform allows clients to view 100% of their security program on an easy-to-read, customizable dashboard. It is also the only platform to be a HITRUST Readiness Licensee and a licensee of the AICPA for SOC 1, SOC 2 and SOC 3.
