Compliance is not a tick box exercise
In today’s fiercely competitive and regulated business landscape, organizations have a responsibility to show that they are dedicated to proactive protection of sensitive data relating to their customers, clients, and partners. When managing risk and compliance – for everything from Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard to ISO compliance – organizations often want a tool to help provide visibility into risks facing the organization and how those risks are being remediated. Many companies believe that with the right tool, they can more effectively anticipate all types of risk – from the mundane to the catastrophic and from hidden threats to emerging hazards.
But managing a risk and compliance tool without an overarching strategy will deliver minimal return on investment and leave the organization in a poor security posture. Tailoring a framework and developing a strategic roadmap that includes people, processes and technology is critical to the success of any risk and compliance program.
When seeking guidance to develop a risk and compliance strategy, build an effective program and deploy the right tools to manage it, organizations of all sizes can turn to Antares for leading expertise and solutions.
Organizations that fail to take cyber threats seriously risk customer churn, missing out on business deals, reputational damage, or significant regulatory sanctions.

Streamline and simplify third-party risk management program
Third-party risk management (TPRM) is a top concern for businesses today. As technology, threats and regulatory frameworks continue to evolve and expand, organizations must put solutions in place to avoid exposure and effectively manage third-party risk. But assessing the security of so many vendors and partners can quickly escalate costs and create an extraordinary burden on IT.
Our third-party risk management program provides comprehensive services for managing vendors and associated risks. From program development, discovery and categorization of partnerships to conducting and managing a third-party risk assessment, we help to streamline and simplify vendor risk management activities while reducing exposure to risk. For organizations with limited staff, constrained budgets and a large vendor ecosystem, our third-party risk management solutions provide the tools and expertise to plan and run an optimal risk management program.
Our third-party risk management solutions include:
Third-party risk program assessment

We assist in building or optimizing third-party risk management programs, delivering policy, tools and scoring methodologies that enable organizations to conduct assessments with greater flexibility and scalability.
