With a New Decade Comes a New Chapter

Each decade presents unlimited opportunity. 2020 and the years that will follow are no different. As I reflect on the legacy of RSA Archer, I realize that our story has been forged by periods of innovation and change over the past two decades. The product was established in 2000 as Archer Technologies, born as an information security policy management platform. Customers quickly began to realize the power of the configurable platform and the depth and breadth of the platform's early offerings. Ten years later, RSA acquired Archer Technologies. The acquisition led to a period of rapid growth. The customer base grew 10X and expanded to more than 25 countries over a few short years. Very quickly, market leadership was established and in the latter half of the decade, RSA continues to be positioned as a Leader in several 2019 Magic Quadrants, including: Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools, Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Risk Management Solutions, and Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Solutions, Worldwide.

As we enter a new decade, RSA Archer along with the collective RSA team is embarking on a new journey and I'm excited to be a part of it. This next chapter comes at a momentous time for RSA Archer. In just the past few months, we've introduced a SaaS offering, modernized the product's UX, introduced regulatory content analysis, third-party security risk monitoring and a data gateway – just to name a few. All of these enhancements empower our customers at a time when risks are expanding due to growing investments in digital transformation. But we're not done yet. We will continue to build our SaaS offering globally, continue to innovate the UX - including an upcoming release of native mobile apps in iOS and Android - and will soon introduce a vendor portal that will reshape how vendor risk management is executed.

Our goal over the next 10 years is to revolutionize the integrated risk management market, further personalize the risk management journey for each of our customers at their pace, while remaining a trusted advisor to you as your organization evolves.

Disclosure Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this communication that relate to future results and events are forward-looking statements and are based on Dell Technologies' current expectations. The words "may," "will," "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "plan," "aim," "seek," and similar expressions as they relate to Dell Technology or its management are intended to identify these forward-looking statements. Factors or risks that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the results we anticipate include, but are not limited to: (i) the failure to consummate or delay in consummating the proposed transaction; (ii) the risk that a condition to closing of the proposed transaction may not be satisfied; (iii) the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the proposed transaction is delayed, is not obtained, or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; and (iv) the effect of the announcement of the proposed transaction on Dell Technologies' relationships with its customers, operating results and business generally. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date as of which such statement is made, and, except as required by law, Dell Technologies undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement after the date as of which such statement was made, whether to reflect changes in circumstances or expectations, the occurrence of unanticipated events, or otherwise.
