RSA ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABILITY OF RSA ARCHER 6.4 PATCH 2

In support of RSA Archer's global customers, RSA Archer Release 6.4 Patch 2 provides localization of the RSA Archer Platform and 35 use cases. Localization is provided for the following languages:

Chinese (simplified)

French

German

Italian

Japanese

Portuguese/Brazilian

Spanish

 

This release enables organizations with multi-national operations to leverage the RSA Archer Suite in the native languages of their users. Individual users can easily select a supported language for their RSA Archer dashboards, reports, and more. Regardless of which language they choose, users can interact with the same solutions in the same Archer instance.

 

RSA Archer technical documentation is also available in these languages, including:

Use Case User Guides

Online Archer Documentation (Help system)

Installation and Upgrade Guides

Archer Control Panel Help Guide

 

In addition to the localization capabilities, RSA Archer 6.4 Patch 2 includes a number of fixes. See the RSA Archer 6.4 and Later Release Notes for additional information.

 

 

RSA ARCHER SUMMIT 2018 –AUGUST 15-17, NASHVILLE

It may be hard to believe but the RSA Archer Summit 2018 is fast approaching with only weeks away from its start. You can still take advantage of the special discount code which will save you $300 off the current registration fee of $895, but you must act quickly as this offer too will pass. Don’t delay; REGISTER today. Contact your local sales rep or existing accounts manager to request the $300 discount code.

 

Let’s see if we tempt you a bit with what you’ll experience at the Summit 2018 and you can check out the RSA Archer Summit 2018 website for complete details:

 

Agendamore than 50 customer use cases will be presented by your peers at the Summit – learn from the best GRC professionals. Experience face-to-face opportunities to discover best practices, learn about latest product innovations, network with other customers, and meet one-on-one with RSA Archer experts and executives.

 

The RSA Archer Summit is your unique opportunity to share with us what product advances you’d like to see in future releases, connect with your peers and leaders in the industry, and gain that firsthand experience you can only get at the RSA Archer Summit 2018.

 

Help us celebrate 15 years of Integrated Risk Management Excellence – see you in Nashville, August 15-17.

 

Working Groups – there will be a series of Working Groups scheduled the afternoon of August 15, preceding the kick-off of the RSA Archer Summit. Sessions are filling up quickly, and unfortunately, once the session reaches room capacity, the Working Group closes. Here are the sessions being offered this year:

  • IT & Security Risk Management
  • Regulatory & Corporate Compliance Management
  • System Administrator
  • Digital Risk Management
  • Integrated Risk Management
  • User Experience
  • Financial Services (open only to RSA Archer financial services customers: banking, insurance, investment advisors, broker dealers & wealth management)

 

RSA University Pre-Summit Training - in order to accommodate the high demand for a second RSA Archer Admin Boot Camp class, both Platform Fundamentals courses have been cancelled. 

 

There are a few seats left in the Admin Boot Camp 2-day course but are going quickly; 1-2 seats open in Tuesday’s Advanced Workflow course, and 7 seats remaining in the new Infrastructure Administration course. The Wednesday Advanced Workflow course and one session of the Boot Camp are completely sold out. Act now to register … and save 20% or more on course registration fees! All courses will be offered at the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown, a short 3-minute walk from the main Summit hotel.

 

Sponsor Spotlight – check out this year’s enviable Summit 2018 sponsors and be sure to stop by the kiosks and chat. For example, at OpenSky, this is your opportunity to bring your questions to the experts from TUV OpenSky, RSA’s ‘Partner of the Year’ and hear from the team discussing what they’re doing for enterprises today and how they may be able to assist you.

Changes to RSA Link Registration Steps for GDPR Compliance

The RSA Archer Customer/Partner Community is restricted to only RSA Archer customers, RSA partners and RSA employees. Users of the private community must be validated before being granted access using either a License Key, Site ID or contract number. For help locating your License Key, see the KB article How to Locate my License Key.’

 

Registering as a customer this way will not only provide immediate access* to the RSA Archer Customer/Partner private Community, it will also allow you to download the platform installer and grant you access to the RSA Case Management portal.

 

 

Once you have registered using your License Key, you can also expedite the process for your coworkers/team members, without them needing to provide the RSA Archer License Key. See the KB article:How do I add colleagues to our account in RSA Link?

*with the passage of the GDPR, the RSA Archer ‘Request Access’ form has been eliminated. Registering for a RSA Link account using either a License Key, Site ID or contract number will include immediate access to the private community.

 

 

RSA ARCHER ROADMAP SESSIONS

As the roadmap sessions continue to grow in popularity and monthly attendance, we will not be hosting roadmap sessions at the RSA Summit this year, but will instead keep to our monthly cadence so all customers have an opportunity to attend.

 

These sessions are by invitation only and open to existing RSA Archer customers and partners only.  If you would like to attend, please use the Registration Link provided for your preferred Roadmap date and time. Once a quarter, there are Roadmap sessions offered at two different times. The scheduled times are an attempt to provide live attendance opportunities whether you live in the U.S., EMEA, or APJ.

 

Attendance at one Roadmap session per quarter is sufficient. 

 

Please register at least two hours before the session you wish to attend in order to receive your WebEx attendance information before the session begins.

 

To register, visit the RSA Archer Virtual Roadmap session page.

FREE FRIDAY TECH HUDDLES RETURN ON AUGUST 10

The ‘biweekly’ scheduled dates of FFTHs from the Product Management and Product Marketing teams has been announced through October. These FFTH webinars will cover new releases, features, benefits and updates to the Archer software.

 

Please Note: each of these PM & PMM FFTHs will have a ‘unique’ Webex link per webinar. The dial-in number and access code for the PM & PMM FFTHs will be the same.

 

Starting September 14, RSA Archer Customer Support (CS) will return with their technical FFTH offerings and schedule. Once CS returns in September, the PM & PMM FFTH webinars will be held on the following Fridays when CS is not hosting. 

 

Take-away: during September, October and into early November, FFTHs will occur ‘every’ Friday.

 

Check out the FFTH Schedule Page and ‘Follow’ the page too so as topics are announced or updated, you stay in the Archer know.
