Opus' market leading third party management solution, Hiperos 3PM, modernizes how people work and interact with third party management processes across the enterprise. In June 2017, Opus enhanced Hiperos 3PM with the addition of its Information Security Solution. Opus has distinguished itself as a top GRC provider by automating information security assessments at the controls levels, a best-practice approach recommended by Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs.)

The Hiperos 3PM Information Security Solution brings the rigor of controls-driven assessments to the high volume and highly interactive discipline of third party management, including:

  • Controls-based assessments of third party information security risks
  • Rules-driven scoping of appropriate controls for each relationship
  • Automatic creation of assessment work papers
  • Integrated management of remediation
  • Continuous monitoring of risks
