Governance Portal


The Governance Portal is Protiviti’s off-the-shelf GRC software solution.  It integrates content and commonly accepted and proprietary frameworks with world-class consulting expertise in order to provide organizations with the visibility and insight needed to manage and mitigate current and future risk and compliance issues. 


We have worked with hundreds of clients around the world to enable and enhance their GRC programs through our Governance Portal.    It allows organizations to leverage easy to use features such as simple hierarchy views, one-click navigation, and editable Excel-like lists to create useful information and enhance the performance of individual or synergistic departments.   We have found that working with synergistic groups to leverage a common technology solution, such as the Governance Portal, drives early value and long term departmental efficiency.  


Value for our Clients

  • Easy to Configure – the non-technical, highly configurable interface allows assurance teams to make changes for their specific needs 
  • Single Encompassing Module - Unlike other leading GRC platforms, all functionality is included in a single module and user based licensing – even RCM content – providing an overall lower cost of ownership year over year.  This also allows for integration of audit with other assurance functions allowing audit to import risk and control data into audit files, sync changes back to the register for continuous risk profile updates and to preserve the audit file even as changes occur in the register.
  • Produces Useful Information – Robust search capabilities, data visualization and inter-relationships in a single view make reporting easy to create and provides powerful insights for decision making 
  • Simple to Use – with a key focus on usability, one click navigation, a simple hierarchy and Excel-like lists and targeted surveys make data easily consumable and updatable by project teams as well as less frequent users


The Governance Portal is recognized by leading analysts:

  • Named as a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk, and Compliance Platforms, Q1 2016” by Forrester Research, Inc.
  • Positioned as a “Challenger” by Gartner Inc. in the December 2015 Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Solutions

The Governance Portal can enable many GRC use cases.  Using the same base platform, organizations can build a strong foundational risk and control framework to support a single initiative, or multiple GRC programs as your needs expand.
