Third Party Risk Management as a Service (TPRMaaS)

The Lynx team of professionals can help you build, manage and/or execute a consistent and comprehensive Third-Party Assessment Program. We can supplement your team to manage assessment backlogs and surges or run your program end to end.

Our Approach

Lynx Third Party Assessment Professionals have extensive experience supporting clients globally with their many assessment programs. Our TPRM managed services leverage the Lynx Risk Manager (LRM) platform and our Risk Operations Center (ROC). We understand organizations must protect themselves against compromised software security vulnerabilities in their supply chain and poor information security practices of suppliers.

Our team of Professionals can leverage or supplement your internally developed programs and provide third party tool integration as needed.​

• External Attack Surface Management​
• Third Party Risk Assessment/Scanning​
• Dark Web Reconnaissance

The Lynx ROC teams use 3rd party tools to assess and monitor our client’s third-party companies.
