Third Party Risk Protect

Tool for third party risk management programs

A PwC India Product

PwC’s Third-Party Risk Protect tool is designed to transform the end-to-end third-party risk management program by accelerating the third-party onboarding, ongoing due diligence, and termination to efficiently manage the associated risks and reduce the potential third-party-related security breaches. It delivers a workflow and reporting capability covering the entire third-party risk management lifecycle from onboarding till termination along with value-added capabilities around adverse event reporting, third-party-related due diligence, and contract lifecycle management. 




In today's world, organizations are becoming increasingly dependent on third-party products and services to effectively innovate, scale, and grow their complex business models. The growing number of third-party dependencies also comes with several challenges that the organizations need to face.


Increased errors as spreadsheets and emails are used to handle TPRM assessments of increasing complexity and scale


Lack of a common and consolidated view into the third-party risk profile for executive leadership 


Inefficiency and lack of agility as third-party management teams operate in siloed


High upfront investment in terms of cost and time prevents businesses from adopting a GRC based third-party risk management tool
