Designed for both existing and prospective RSA Archer customers, this new offering provides:

RSA ARCHER SaaS

Leverage the power and scalability of the cloud to help address your business risk and global compliance challenges

 

RSA Archer SaaS is a new offering and is completely different than the current hosted deployment option for RSA Archer. With the hosted deployment option for RSA Archer, customers own their own software and RSA provides hosting as a service to these customers. Hosted customers can license their software as either a term or perpetual license or decide to move to an on-premise deployment.  The new RSA Archer SaaS offering is a pay as you go subscription service (minimum contracts can be mandated).

 

On-premises deployments of RSA Archer will continue to be available for existing and prospective customers.

 

RSA Archer Hosting Services will continue to be available for customers who currently have a hosted deployment of RSA Archer, in accordance with existing licensing agreements.

 

With RSA Archer SaaS, customers can leverage the power and scalability of the cloud to help address their business risk and global compliance challenges.

 

Key Features

  • Increased cadence of innovation, improvement, and updates to the RSA Archer Suite
  • Provides the same solution and feature set available in RSA Archer on-premise
  • Prescriptive IRM solution options for customers
  • Enhanced security, performance, and scalability
  • Embedded Customer Success Program
  • Single sign-on
  • Global AWS data centers

 

Key Benefits

  • Time to value – stand up solution in days/hours
  • Flexibility and scalability to support growing integrated risk management (IRM) needs
  • Immediate access to the latest releases and functionality
  • Lower total cost of ownership for customers
  • Global datacenters: U.S., EMEA, Australia
  • Removes operational burden and expenditures for capital hardware and ongoing IT-related activities
  • Mission-critical resiliency and committed SLA

RSA ARCHER VIRTUAL ROADMAP SESSIONS – JUNE

 

 

The June RSA Archer Virtual Roadmap sessions are available for registration now. The June 10/11 sessions are fast approaching!

 

The monthly Roadmap sessions bring visibility into the product roadmap. The RSA Archer product team will present the product roadmap to registered invitees, solicit feedback, and answer questions that arise from the presentation.

 

Since the Roadmap sessions contain forward-looking information, the sessions are not recorded or posted to the RSA Archer communities. Therefore, we strongly recommend that every customer attend “one” Roadmap session per quarter; “one” per quarter is sufficient.

 

We invite you to register now for one of the remaining Q2 2020 Roadmap sessions, based on your preference and availability. Registration must be completed at least “two (2) hours” prior to the start of each session.

 

Don’t delay; register today for one of the sessions.

JOIN MY CONVERSATION: “IS ORGANIZATIONAL RESPONSE TO PANDEMIC HAPPENING IN PHASES?”

I recently drafted a blog on RSA.com,“Tips for Applying the Known in Times of Uncertainty,” then posted aConversationon RSA Link proposing that there are four levels of organizational response to the current pandemic facing us.

 

I would really like to hear from you directly on how your organization is addressing the levels I proposed, if you are in agreement, or have other opinions to share.

 

I welcome your feedback by replying to my Conversation PostI look forward to your replies.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Vice President, RSA

RSA CHARGE 2020 ‘CALL FOR SPEAKERS’ CLOSES JUNE 30

The majority of us are working from home, participating in a growing deluge of Zoom meetings, self-distancing, and looking for anything to break away from what is now our new normal.

 

How about getting your creative juices flowing and submit a short presentation brief for RSA Charge 2020? 

There’s no better way to learn than by hearing from people who use, create and deliver the RSA products on a daily basis.

 

Do you have a great customer success story to tell? Do you have a passion for sharing your knowledge with others? Do you like helping others solve common challenges? If you answered yes to any – or all – of those questions, then we want to hear from you!

 

If you have ever attended RSA Charge, you know that the quality of speakers is extremely high. If you are already thinking to yourself, “I've got a great story to tell and want to share, best practices, teachings, and how-to’s," then don't wait – submit your idea today.

 

After we comb through every submission, we'll make our decisions. If you are selected to speak at RSA Charge 2020, you'll receive a complimentary full conference pass. All submissions must be in by June 30, 2020. (Date Extension!)

 

To help you get started, below are 10 tips as to what we’re looking for in this year's RSA Charge submissions:

 

  • Start with a great story to tell, including a passion for sharing knowledge with others
  • Touch on a topic that addresses or solves common customer challenges
  • Clearly identify your target audience and/or target industries
  • Highlight a tip or trick (i.e. “Use this shortcut to save 10 minutes a week.”)
  • Include an engaging and eye-catching demo
  • Underscore the power of RSA cross solutions products (i.e. using multiple RSA products to solve challenges)
  • Incorporate clear use cases, best practices, learnings, and how-to’s
  • Clearly identify how your company uses RSA products (including the roll-out)
  • Highlight key success metrics and/or ROI resulting from your implementation
  • Have a key takeaway or action item that attendees will walk away with

 

To submit your idea for consideration to be a RSA Charge 2020 presenter, please complete the Speaker Form by going to RSA Charge 2020, click on Program, then click on Call for Speakers to access the Submission Form.

 

UPDATE: Call for Speakers has been extended to JUNE 30, 2020.

 

In Memory of Our Friend John Kirkwood

With deep regret, RSA Archer shares with you the passing of John Kirkwood. Among his many amazing accomplishments, John served as the first Archer User Group Chairman and was a loyal customer for many years at several organizations. John was a true Archer champion. From the early days of Archer John understood the value Archer provided far more than many of us could envision. He challenged all of us to dream bigger and push harder. Archer is far better today because of the contributions John made and we will always remember John as a true Archer crusader. Rest in peace, John.

 

Personal Message from David Walter, president RSA Archer

I must also acknowledge the personal mentorship John provided me. I learned many traits of good leadership from John. He was always optimistic, visionary and never accepting an excuse. He personally drove me to be a better leader and maximize the value provided to our customers. I will always think fondly of John and know he's smiling at the inroads Archer has made over the years, but he would want us to keep pushing to be even better tomorrow then we are today. 

Thank you, John, you will be sorely missed my friend.
