For the fourth consecutive report, Dell (RSA) has been named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Business Continuity Management Program Solutions (BCMP)!


Of note, RSA Archer has again been named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrants for Operational Risk Management, IT Vendor Risk Management, and IT Risk Management.


In the BCMP MQ, Gartner states that, “the 2017 BCMP solutions market — with an estimated $300 million global market revenue — has broadened its IT disaster recovery management, crisis management and risk management capabilities since 2016.” 2.  They go on to say that, “the critical capabilities of BCMP solutions center on providing business leaders with a more effective means of evaluating operational risks and business impacts, as well as planning for, responding to, recovering from, and restoring after a business disruption.” 2.  And we couldn’t agree more.  BCM continues to evolve as a critical function that must focus on managing business risk and IT risk, covering the lifecycle from resiliency planning to execution, and providing management with information to make decisions based on real business impacts.  Also, as implied in the name change for this Magic Quadrant, from “Planning” to “Program” solutions, BCM teams now play a larger part in the organization’s risk mission and must run their BCM programs accordingly to support this increased responsibility.


We believe that an important factor in RSA’s placement as a Leader was based on our ability to leverage risk throughout the platform and solutions; especially critical in light of Gartner’s emphasis that BCM is an important contributor to risk management.


We extend our gratitude to our customers for sharing their valuable insights and experiences with Gartner. For as long as the RSA Archer product roadmap and capabilities have existed, our community of active and enthusiastic users has been at the heart of it all, and we thank you.
