Gartner Peer Insights

Attack Surface

Includes fourth-party discovery, deep protocol inspection, human factor and business context. Deep inspection of cloud service providers (AWS, Azure) regions and availability zones. Fastest new vendor assessment in the industry (<2 hours). 99.8% findings accuracy.

Offers comprehensive external attack surface assessment.

Process Automation

Automates the entire TPSRM process from attack surface analysis to questionnaire assessments accounting for both inherent risk and residual risk, remediation and ongoing monitoring.

Strong attack surface assessment, but questionnaire capabilities are nascent. Does not consider inherent risk of the business relationship with a supplier. Disputes take approximately 30 days to rectify.

Impact: Increased cost, incomplete view of third-party risk


Integration of both templated (ex. SIG, CAIQ) and customizable questionnaires included in the platform. Panorays’ questionnaires are based on advanced logic, include an analysis layer and are mapped against our external attack surface assessment to ensure authenticity of answers.

Questionnaire capability is new and not yet fully developed, offered as a separate product.

Impact: Increased cost
