Forrester evaluated 15 leading enterprise governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) platform vendors across approximately 100 criteria. BWise demonstrated the strongest overall offering, with AXENTIS,MetricStream, OpenPages, Paisley, and QUMAS rounding out the Leaders category. The Strong Performers included 80-20 Software, Compliance 360, Cura, MEGA, and Strategic Thought Group.
Certus Software, Mitratech, and Protiviti were Contenders, while IBM was judged to be a Risky Bet. In addition to the overall enterprise GRC evaluation, we also created models showing how the vendors measured up in each of the three areas of governance, risk, and compliance. While these different perspectives changed many of the vendors’ competitive positions, those that did the best overall
generally were strong across the board.
