Use Case for Third Party Governance




RSA Archer® Third Party Security Risk Monitoring delivers transparent security measurements, analytics, and analyst-level insight to dramatically improve your third-party information security risk management program. It provides organizations with visibility, insight, and actionable intelligence into their third- and fourth-party IT risk environments. You can quickly assess the effectiveness of each third party’s security controls with standalone capabilities or as a supplement to questionnaire-based control assessments.

The RSA Archer Third Party Security Risk Monitoring use case discovers and analyzes each third party’s IT footprint. Using artificial Intelligence (AI), algorithms automatically assess the risk posture of various third-party IT assets to understand how well third parties manage information security. You can leverage Third Party Security Risk Monitoring as a stand-alone solution for monitoring third party risk or as the basis for implementing a broader IT and third-party risk management program when deployed with complementary RSA Archer use cases..
