Centraleyes announces the addition of the Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Toolkit (HECVAT) its extensive framework library.
HECVAT is a risk assessment template that was created specifically for higher education institutions to provide a baseline assessment for evaluating vendor-provided services and resources. This framework is relevant to anyone who works in higher education, or for a solution provider that serves colleges and universities.
By having a solution provider complete HECVAT, the higher education institution verifies that cybersecurity controls, policies and procedures are in place to protect sensitive institutional information and constituents’ PII (personally-identifiable information).
The Centraleyes platform delivers streamlined, automated data collection and analysis, prioritized remediation guidance, and real-time customized scoring to meet the HECVAT requirements.

Universities are a lucrative target for hackers and threat actors, and the number of attacks continues to increase every year. The cost of a data or privacy breach can lead to significant monetary loss and reputational damage. However, without a consolidated approach, academic institutions use outdated and manual solutions, which simply aren’t helping to ensure compliance and security.
By not implementing the HECVAT assessments, solution providers risk losing out on business opportunities as organizations will prefer HECVAT-compliant vendors over non-compliant providers. Universities that don’t mandate HECVAT for all their third party software significantly increase the likelihood of unknown vulnerabilities which can result in devastating breaches.
Centraleyes delivers an integrated HECVAT questionnaire, automated data collection and analysis, prioritized remediation guidance, and real-time customized scoring to meet the HECVAT requirements.
The Centraleyes platform also collects all security information and automates reports to assist organizations in meeting HECVAT requirements, resulting in time savings, money savings and more accurate data.
