BREAKING NEWS: MAY 22, 2019

 

RSA ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABILITY OF RSA ARCHER THIRD PARTY SECURITY RISK MONITORING USE CASE FOR THE RSA ARCHER GOVERNANCE SOLUTION AREA

RSA Archer Third Party Security Risk Monitoring delivers transparent security measurements, analytics, and analyst-level insight. By providing visibility, insight, and actionable intelligence into third- and fourth-party IT risk environments, it enables quick assessment of the effectiveness of security controls for third parties without relying on manual spreadsheet assessments and emails without audit trails.

 

To learn more about the features of the RSA Archer Third Party Security Risk Monitoring Use Case, read the Product Advisory .

 

Please Note: This use case is available as a SaaS (software as a service) application for all on-premise and hosted RSA Archer implementations. There is no installation package available for this use case. RSA Archer Third Party Security Risk Monitoring can be implemented as a standalone solution for monitoring third-party risk. 

 

To obtain a license for this use case, contact your RSA Archer account representative.
