The 4 Leaders in the Gartner Integrated Risk Management (IRM) MQ

As part of our brand new coverage of the equally young Integrated Risk Management (IRM) market, we’ve started to keep an eye on the numerous and distinct solution providers that comprise this increasingly prominent and growing sector of the cybersecurity world.

As technology research firm Gartner has only recently begun to explore this field, enterprises need clarity in their solution selection process. What features and capabilities should they focus on? What makes an Integrated Risk Management solution different from its competitors? How can enterprises determine each one’s strengths, weaknesses, sizes, and focuses?

The following providers have recently been named Leaders in The Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Integrated Risk Management (IRM). While each company’s market share differs, these tools shape the foundation of the IRM market according to Gartner. Their report suggests that the success these vendors achieved serves as an inspiration and benchmark for new vendors entering the IRM field. These providers stand out as cornerstones in the market, offering tools for a wide variety of use cases, and thus in Gartner’s report are worthy of the Leader title.
