Blog Post created by Marshall Toburen Employee on May 9, 2016

Henry Ford, American entrepreneur and founder of Ford Motor, once said “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” That’s how the RSA Archer team feels about working with our customers. We come together to solve risk challenges. We work together via the Archer GRC Community to better our risk business processes. And by working together, we achieve success by enabling organizations to manage risk with best-in-class technology.

 

Our success is a product of your success.  And I’m excited to share great news about our mutual risk management success.  Last week, Gartner published their second annual Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management.  EMC-RSA is once again named a Leader and is cited as the vendor with the highest rating for “Ability to Execute”.

Why the excitement?  RSA Archer’s passion is to inspire our customers to own risk within their organizations.  There are many types of risks – cyber, operational, regulatory, resiliency, third party risk and more. The IT Vendor Risk Management Magic Quadrant leader positioning coupled with the January, 2015 Gartner Operational Risk Management Magic Quadrant leader evaluation demonstrate that Archer’s customers are leading the operational and IT vendor risk charge and using our technology to accomplish their goals.

 

For our customers using RSA Archer’s Third Party Governance offerings, thank you for sharing your experiences with Gartner.  This news fuels new customer interest in the Archer technology and enables us to continue growing that technology. In addition, you can share this news with your management team to affirm your GRC technology choice.

 

For those of you still considering how to grapple with third party risk and performance management, I encourage you to take a look at the report to understand Gartner’s valuable perspective on the market and RSA Archer’s position within it.

 

I never tire of sharing great news like this and know there is more to come in the coming months. The Archer team looks forward to continuing our risk journey working toward mutual success.  Best wishes, and happy third party management!
