EMC-RSA Again Named a Leader in the Gartner 2014 BCMP Magic Quadrant

Blog Post created by PatrickP Employee on Sep 9, 2014

I'm proud to announce that for the second year in a row, EMC-RSA was positioned as a leader in the Gartner August 2014 Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Business Continuity Management Planning (BCMP) software!  You can download the report here.



For this Magic Quadrant, Gartner analysts Roberta Witty and John Morency evaluated 18 enterprise-class vendors and their criteria focused on two primary areas – the organization’s Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.  The main features that distinguished the vendors from each other and formed their position in this Magic Quadrant were:

                              • Ease of use, configuration and customization
                              • Depth of data analytics, crisis/incident management (C/IM) and exercise management
                              • Level of real-time interactive action of their mobile device apps
                              • Plan management aides, such as built-in workflow procedures for BIA and recovery plan creation and maintenance


According to Gartner’s estimates, the BCMP market continues to grow with 2013 BCMP market revenue of $162 million — 24% more than their 2012 estimate.  They also stated that BCMP capability is progressively being developed by GRC vendors. We believe this point really accentuates RSA Archer's vision in integrating BCM planning with other related disciplines like Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) or Incident Management.


We are proud of our strengths and will continue to learn and improve not only from these analyses, but also from our BCM working group of over 60 customers, our active RSA Archer online community with more than 11,500 members, and our continuous engagement with our valued customers.
