By now, you may have heard the good news – RSA Archer release 6.3 is now available! RSA Charge 2017 (Oct. 17-19, 2017 in Dallas, TX) is the ideal occasion for us to release our latest software with a bang.
RSA Archer release 6.3 includes two new use cases RSA Archer Data Governance and RSA Archer Privacy Program Management, platform enhancements, and updates to Business Resiliency, Public Sector and Payment Card Industry (PCI) use cases. Look for additional blog posts in the coming days and weeks for a deeper dive into this Release 6.3 functionality.
Release 6.3 introduces two new use cases as part of the solution, RSA Archer Data Governance and RSA Archer Privacy Program Management. These new use cases will assist companies in managing the requirements set forth by applicable privacy regulations, including the GDPR regulation. PCI Management has also been updated to address the most recent PCI standard release, 3.2.
RSA Archer Business Resiliency use cases received a comprehensive upgrade to better help companies manage disruption and crises. Terminology and workflows have been realigned to better support the crisis management process and new out-of-the-box notifications and test plans will help with the velocity of the business continuity management process.
The Public Sector use case updates will improve customer efficiency as well as usability with ICS and SCADA controls. Specifically, the RSA Archer Assessment & Authorization (A&A) use case has improved usability through the use of advanced workflow. This will reduce the time and effort needed to assess information systems, maintain control documentation and manage remediation efforts.
This release has several enhancements to the RSA Archer platform. Some highlights include:
RSA Archer Administrators will now have access to a new dashboard that will provide insights into system health and activity.
There are also several enhancements that aim to reduce the number of clicks necessary to perform tasks. For instance:
- ‘Bulk Record Operations’, where a user can now select and update multiple records at once;
- ‘Direct to Edit’ where a user can open a record in edit mode in one click; and
- ‘ Save & Close’ where a user can save his work and go back to the previous screen in a single click.
From an appearance perspective, if you want to match your application to your own corporate branding and design, you will have a lot more options to play with and levers to push. RSA Archer 6.3 expands color configuration capability. Administrators can now configure the User Interface to match their corporate branding and design, as well as customize page and field border colors.
This release contains other improvements as well so check out the release documentation to get the details. As mentioned early, there will be new posts for a deeper dive into some of these items.
