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 risk management program. It provides organizations visibility, insight, and actionable intelligence into their third- and fourth-party IT risk environments. Using Third Party Security Risk Monitoring, you can quickly assess the effectiveness of security controls for third parties without relying on manual spreadsheet assessments and long emails with no audit trails.

The RSA Archer Third Party Security Risk Monitoring use case discovers and analyzes each third party’s IT footprint using artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically measure the value of each asset. This enables analysts to quickly identify each vendor’s specific systems that pose the greatest risk, based on vulnerability severity and asset criticality. Organizations can leverage Third Party Security Risk Monitoring as a standalone 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.
