It’s a 3-peat! Gartner names Dell Technologies (RSA) a Leader in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Management Solutions

Blog Post created by Marshall Toburen Employee on Dec 20, 2016

For the third consecutive year, Gartner has placed Dell Technologies (RSA) as a Leader in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Management Solutions.

As you can see in the MQ graphic (above), Gartner has positioned Dell Technologies (RSA) based on “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.” 


This year’s Magic Quadrant (MQ) evaluation was based on RSA Archer Release 6.1. This release represents a collection of individual use-case-based-solutions that can be purchased and deployed independently or collectively. RSA Archer developed this new approach to align with the way our customers typically mature their operational risk management (ORM) programs. Customers are able to affordably purchase and install exactly what they need, when they need it, and then easily build out a more comprehensive ORM solution when they are ready. When combined with other RSA Archer solutions, organizations can extend their ORM solution into a broader, enterprise risk management deployment.


Gartner evaluates customers’ reviews of solution capabilities, and we thank all of you that took time to participate in this year’s survey from Gartner. We sincerely appreciate your valuable time in sharing your thoughts and experiences with the Gartner team. Much of RSA Archer’s strength stems from the passion of our customers across numerous industries, in more than 50 countries, and what they share with us and more than 6,000 of their peers in the RSA Archer Community on RSA Link.


We value Gartner’s insight on changes in the practice of risk management because they invest significant time and effort in talking with so many organizations around the world regarding their risk management program activities. Of particular interest to us is Gartner’s observation that “security and risk management leaders are seeking to integrate their risk management solutions to gain a more holistic view of risk across the enterprise,” and that “operational risk management solutions serve as the core element of integrated risk management.” We’ve also heard this from our customers and see it in analyses of various enterprise risk management (ERM) surveys. Organizations globally seem to be moving toward ERM, and, in fact, the practice of ERM has reached critical mass. Why? Perhaps because, as Ernst & Young reported, companies in the top 20% of risk maturity generate three times the level of EBITA than those in the bottom 20%!

If your organization is in the process of extending your ORM program or “testing the waters” for ERM, we encourage you to reach out to us to learn more about our how Archer can provide your organization with a proven path for your risk and compliance roadmap.
