The transaction will enable ProcessUnity to further extend its market-leading position via rapid product development, international expansion and continued investments in its people and talent.

The company’s Vendor Risk Management software has consistently been recognized as an industry-leading solution that automates the third-party risk management lifecycle from end-to-end, while its Cybersecurity Program Management (CPM) product offers a single, comprehensive platform for centrally managing an organization’s entire cybersecurity program. Designed specifically for the Chief Information Security Officer, ProcessUnity CPM is the industry’s first comprehensive, prepackaged platform to allow businesses to evaluate and remediate cybersecurity risk effectively, schedule and automate cyber-related activities and analyze and report on cybersecurity control effectiveness across the company.
