RSA Named A Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Risk Management

Blog Post created by Mason Karrer Employee on Jun 20, 2016

RSA Archer is very excited to be recognized by Gartner once again as a Leader in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for IT Risk Management! Of the nearly dozen vendors evaluated, RSA was cited as the vendor with the highest rating for "Ability to Execute".  According to Gartner, "RSA Archer's fulfillment of critical needs, customer understanding, and insight into primary buyer identification are among the best-observed in the market."


This exciting accomplishment comes on the heels of similar leadership positions announced in the IT Vendor Risk and Operational Risk Management Magic Quadrants earlier this year. Together these represent a true market-leading ability that Archer's customers have to manage business and IT operational risk programs effectively to accomplish their goals.

We're doubly excited for this announcement as it actually reflects an evaluation of a prior version of Archer (v5.5.3). And today our current v6.1 takes Archer's core capabilities several levels further!


We also offer a sincere thank you to our customers for sharing their valuable insights and experiences with Gartner directly. It isn't difficult to find vendors in any market preaching the importance of their customers whether they practice that or not. However here at RSA Archer our customers really do define our success and our large community of active users is at the heart of how we drive the product forward. Gartner specifically recognized us for actively gathering & considering customer input in our strategy and design decisions. Our redesigned user interface and new pricing model are just two examples of the transformational product outputs our customers have helped inspire.


Whether you're new to GRC or managing a successful program already, I encourge you to review Gartner's full report. Many valuable market insights and important elements to consider throughout all stages of GRC program maturity can be found. And we are standing by to engage with you and answer any questions you have as we continue our mission to inspire everyone to own risk. And if you haven't already, be sure to register for 2016 RSA Charge, October 25-27 in New Orleans. This year promises to be the biggest event ever! Hope to see you there and best wishes!
