"Vendefense"

What do you like best?

Vendefense provides an easy to use interface. The dashboard is well laid out. You can easily review the status of your vendors and where they are in their risk assessment. The risk assessment questions vary by the vendors rated impact. A medium impact vendor will not receive as detailed questionnaire as a high impact vendor. Risk Assessment questions are well worded with helpful pop-ups for additional clarification of the question.

What do you dislike?

There have been a couple outages of the application, though the vendor has been quick to respond and provide remediation. It would be nice to have access to the email notification templates for customization.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many of our vendors have remote access to provide support of their systems. As a healthcare organization, we wanted to ensure our vendors are addressing security in their organization. We needed a solution for assessing the security posture of our vendors. VENDEFENSE provides a streamlined workflow for engaging vendors. It’s easy to use interface minimizes time spent managing assessments. VENDEFENSE produces detailed useful reports. With VENDEFENSE, we are able to identify gaps in vendor security and better protect our network.

"Helpful Tool for Vendor Management"

What do you like best?

The customer service has been amazing! Whenever I have a question or issue they are quick to respond. They also are very open to suggestions for changes and responsive to things that aren't working.

This tool helps our dispersed team come together in one tool to manage our vendors. Having the tool manage the status of each vendor and the workflow has been a huge time saver. The tool is straight forward and very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

There are still a few workflow items when working within the tool I would like to see changed. When working with the list of vendors that have classifications to be reviewed, after each vendor it returns to the list of vendors instead of the list of classifications. Or after approving the classification if it would just continue to the next vendor, that would be a huge time saver.

There also could be a few more definitions of terminology right in the tool instead of having to go to the Help area to know the definition of Confidential and Physical/Logical Access, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are not using a tool now and you need to have a Vendor Management program VENDEFENSE helps you get there quickly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Two years ago, we were a small software company in one location with 25 employees. Now we are a company with 3 divisions in 4 locations with remote employees in 12 states. VENDEFENSE is helping us review all our vendors and make sure they are protecting our data and our client’s data in a secure and proper manner.

Prior to VENDEFENSE we were not vetting our vendors security practices at all. Now we have a tool that lets them know that we care about security and gives them guidelines on how they should be handling security as well.

"Easy to Use and Powerful Vendor Risk Management Tool"

What do you like best?

I really appreciate that VENDEFENSE gave me the tools to be successful with a more robust vendor risk management program without needing more specialized knowledge of this topic. Once we uploaded our vendors and answered some basic demographic questions on each one, the tool took over and now we're benefiting from an even stronger information security program. They also have great customer support to help with any questions that arise along the way.

What do you dislike?

I'm satisfied with the product so far. There's nothing I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start with one vendor or a small test group when first putting vendors into the tool. Relationship owners and vendor contacts will naturally have questions and so you'll learn from each vendor experience and be able to apply that learning to subsequent entries.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our organization was looking to enhance our vendor risk management program and processes.

"Vendor management ease at it's best!"

What do you like best?

It is very easy and intuitive to use. Very minimal training is required. Vendors like it as well. I like how it follows-up to ensure the vendor actually responds for you.

What do you dislike?

Cannot re-brand as our own which prevents some external vendors from realizing it is actually our portal. Cannot bulk import question answers from a spreadsheet. Could use a comments section for added context on some questions.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Vendor management risk tracking and reporting. Very useful for managing a very tedious task!
