In a move to better respond to digital risk resulting from digital transformation and innovation priorities, RSA has updated the RSA Archer and NetWitness Platforms.
Archer is RSA’s governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) platform and includes cyber incident and breach response capabilities. NetWitness is RSA’s threat detection security incident and event management (SIEM) system. To gain a current picture of organizational risk, integration of real-time information about vulnerabilities and controls is required.
In a recent announcement, RSA indicated that it was “investing in both product areas to deliver a unified approach to advanced security operations and integrated risk management ... to better manage digital risk.”
Assessment of business risk in today’s complex architecture of custom and off-the-shelf applications deployed on premises, in a hybrid environment, or in the cloud is more difficult than ever. Layer on top of that the increasing demand to comply with new and evolving security and privacy compliance requirements, the business finds itself challenged to make decisions based on complete information.
Governance, risk, and compliance tools need to evolve to support management’s needs. Their original roots in the compliance space has evolved over time, however, to continue to thrive in the market, they must better reflect current state risk posture and provide additional value. GRC tools must continue to evolve through smart, data-driven integration and become a knowledgebase as well as audit compliance platform.
