RSA Acknowledged as a Leader in Four Gartner Magic Quadrants for its IT Risk Management Solutions

RSA Archer was named a leader in four separate Gartner Magic Quadrant reports, including operational risk management and IT risk management.

Bedford, MA – July 20, 2017 – RSA, a global cybersecurity leader delivering Business-Driven Security™ solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned RSA in the "Leaders" quadrant in four Magic Quadrants:

  • 2017 Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Program Solutions, Worldwidei
  • 2017 Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Managementii
  • 2017 Magic Quadrant for IT Risk Management Solutionsiii
  • 2016 Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Management Solutionsiv

As a Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Business Risk Management Suite, the RSA Archer Suite is engineered to help organizations manage multiple dimensions of risk with solutions built on industry standards and best practices on one configurable, integrated software platform. Through the RSA Archer solution's integrated use cases, organizations can help gain the accountability, collaboration, visibility, analytics and efficiencies across their risk management processes necessary for today's challenging business environment. We believe RSA's position in the Gartner Magic Quadrants underscores our commitment to enabling risk management for the most critical areas of risk.

Organizations are facing increased risk, however they struggle to respond to business risks rather than seizing opportunities that drive the business forward. According to Gartner's report on Operational Risk Management Solutions, "Security and risk management leaders are seeking to integrate their risk management solutions to gain a more holistic view of risk across the enterprise."

Additionally, as cloud and as-a-Service IT consumption models continue to rise, Gartner acknowledged in its report on IT Vendor Risk Management (IT VRM) Solutions that, "IT VRM capabilities continue to improve each year, with most solutions now supporting the increased demands around due diligence of a vendor's own suppliers and subcontractors (or fourth-party relationships)."

"In today's uncertain, high risk world, RSA Archer solutions are designed to help organizations define, collect and quantify business risks, and when combined with information about security incidents, organizations can respond faster, protect what matters most and enable business growth," said David Walter, vice president, RSA Archer. "We believe RSA's positioning as a leader in four of Gartner's Magic Quadrants is further validation of our ability to help customers confidently advance their command of risk and understand what risks are worth taking."
