MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 25, 2012 /CNW/ - Protiviti (www.protiviti.com), a
global consulting firm, has been named a "Challenger" by Gartner, Inc. in the

The Protiviti Governance Portal provides organizations with the visibility and

objectives through a single, unified technology platform.
"We are pleased that Protiviti is positioned in the EGRC Platforms
'Challenger' quadrant," said Scott Wisniewski, managing director, Risk
Technologies, Protiviti. "We have been able to deliver new features and
capabilities to the market that meet the evolving needs of our clients, who
report that the Governance Portal is quick to implement, easy to use, and
scalable to new GRC domains as their programs evolve. We will build on this
momentum and continue to offer our clients cost-effective and pragmatic
solutions that help them execute upon their business strategies while
effectively managing risk."
According to Gartner, "The primary purpose of the EGRC platform is to automate
much of the work associated with the documentation and reporting of the risk
management and compliance activities that are most closely associated with
corporate governance and strategic business objectives." The report also
states that the EGRC market "is approaching maturity" and "differentiation
today is about the ability to deliver advanced risk management functionality,
with analysis of the impact of risks on business performance, domain expertise
in multiple highly regulated industries, and ease of use and configurability."
