RSA Archer Suite

6 Posts authored by: Susan Jessee Employee

I am happy to share that for the fourth time, RSA has been positioned as a Leader in the just-published Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for IT Risk Management (ITRM) Solutions

 

The field for this year’s Gartner MQ for ITRM is comprised of ten vendors. Based on Gartner analysts’ evaluation of RSA Archer Release 6.5, which included an in-depth questionnaire, product demonstration, and interviews with RSA Archer customers, Dell Technologies / RSA was positioned highest in "Ability to Execute.”

 

 

We would like to sincerely thank our customers for sharing with Gartner their valuable insights and experiences using RSA Archer solutions. Our customers and community of users are truly what continues to make RSA Archer great!

 

The Garter MQ for ITRM is the first of four Gartner MQs this year that will include RSA Archer, including MQ reports for Integrated Risk Management and Business Continuity Management Planning in the coming months, as well as IT Vendor Risk Management Tools later this year.

 

If you are just beginning to explore IT risk management, or if you are already managing a successful integrated risk management program, we encourage you to read the full report.

 

This graphic was published by Gartner, Inc. as part of a larger research document and should be evaluated in the context of the entire document. The Gartner document is available upon request from Dell Technologies.

Available beginning today, RSA Archer Release 6.6 represents our next step forward in creating a next-generation user experience that brings the power of RSA Archer to an evolving user base, where they are, with the context they need, and in the format they want.

 

With this release, we’ve focused on continuing to elevate the user experience with RSA Archer, with user interface, usability, and accessibility updates that support the growing scope and importance of risk and compliance at all levels of our customers’ organizations. Release 6.6 includes a number of improvements to key features of the main navigation, dashboards, and records pages for a more modern look and feel and enhanced functionality.

 

Other enhancements to the RSA Archer Platform include search and reporting improvements for easier and faster analysis. A new “Refine By” pane on the search results page – similar to what you would see in the left column on Amazon.com -- makes it easy to slice and dice initial search results by clicking attributes to filter the results without leaving the results page. Users can also add, remove, and reorder display fields directly from the search results page, for more efficient modifications to search results. To enable faster navigation and search, Global Search now provides search suggestions that appear in real-time as text is entered to enable faster navigation, and prioritizes content that matches the Key Field, Tracking ID, or both.

 

Release 6.6 includes workflow management enhancements for greater efficiency, including while on the move. As one of the customer-voted “Top 10” features on RSA Ideas, the new Advanced Workflow Actions by Email capability enables users to quickly and easily complete workflow actions, such as approving or rejecting a record, via email without the need to log in to RSA Archer. The release also includes performance improvements to optimize management of data at scale, support for an Application Managed Output Writer for JavaScript Transporter to enable more data in a single data feed, and removal of inactive jobs to reduce the job engine load.

 

RSA Archer Release 6.6 also includes updates for several use cases:

  • RSA Archer Key Indicator Management use case updates enable past due active metrics or metrics that do not have recorded results to be automatically enrolled into workflow. Metric owners are notified that action is required and can then determine the appropriate remediation actions for the metric.
  • RSA Archer Corporate Obligations Management and RSA Archer IT Regulatory Management use cases have been updated to remove pre-configured data feeds from the use case package, allowing customers to customize configuration based on their regulatory requirements. Data feeds are now available from the RSA Exchange on RSA Link.
  • RSA Archer Enterprise Catalog is a new package designed to simplify the process of updating releases by aggregating shared applications across multiple use cases.

 

Last, but certainly not least, for our global customers, RSA Archer Release 6.6 includes localization for the eight languages supported by RSA Archer. We’re very pleased to be able to provide localization with general availability for the first time with RSA Archer Release 6.6. Customers can immediately download RSA Archer in their language of preference, and translated documentation is also available.

 

For more details on RSA Archer Release 6.6 features and functionality, RSA Archer customers can review the product advisory. Customers are invited to join us for a Free Friday Tech Huddle on Friday, May 3. You can also read the blog series and check out the documentation available on the RSA Archer Release 6.6 subspace on RSA Link.

 

If you haven’t yet upgraded to 6.x to take advantage of these and other great features, please reach out to your account representative. You don’t know how much you’re missing!

 

Stay tuned for even more great things coming soon for the RSA Archer Suite.

Today, we’re pleased to announce availability of RSA Exchange Release R7, which introduces 10 new and two updated offerings, as well as new and updated content. We're thrilled that our RSA Exchange Technology Partners continue to develop and deliver innovation for RSA Archer customers via the RSA Exchange, and look forward to much more in future releases.

With today’s launch of RSA Exchange Release R6, we're very excited to deliver two new integrations in support of our mobility strategy. As we previewed at RSA Archer Summit 2018 in August:

  • A new integration with Mendix enables customers to access the RSA Archer Platform via a variety of supported mobile devices both on iOS and Android. Customers can customize their Mendix-based apps to suit their specific user experience and business requirements and interact with the RSA Archer Suite using the RSA Archer public APIs.
  • A new integration with KONEXUS provides an intuitive mobile solution that integrates with RSA Archer Business Resiliency use cases. The integration streamlines crisis response and transforms business continuity and crisis management plans into actionable, role-based, task lists that put critical information in the hands of users via their mobile devices.  

 

RSA Exchange Release R6 also includes integrations with, erwin, Rapid Ratings, SoftWarfare, ThreatConnect, and ThreatQuotient. as well as the following offerings:

 

  • App-Packs – pre-built applications addressing adjacent or supporting GRC processes (e.g. niche, industry, geo-specific)

     

    • Tools & Utilities - pre-built functions enabling administrators to more easily manage their RSA Archer implementations

     

     

    RSA Exchange Release R6 also includes updated content for Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM) to include Controls. Content library packages are available on the RSA Exchange Documentation & Downloads subspace.

     

    All RSA Exchange offerings are available on RSA Link, along with implementation guides, demo videos, and installation guides where available. For existing RSA Archer customers, you can learn more about these new and updated offerings in upcoming Free Friday Tech Huddles.

    In the wintery cold of February, the summer heat of August seems like a distant dream. But planning for RSA Archer Summit 2018, Aug. 15-17 in Nashville, Tennessee, is already in full swing.

     

    And we need YOU!
