We performed a comparison between MEGA HOPEX and RSA Archer based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two GRC solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"HOPEX has a panel that offers various views. I think that is very good. MEGA has an app for integrating with a lot of apps. We help our clients integrate HOPEX with a different product like Apple Gateway, for example. I've been with the company for 15 years, and we connect with everything. Our clientele includes almost all of the banks in Mexico."
"The most valuable parts of this solution are the richness of its features and its easy interface."
"We have many use cases for this solution but the feature I have found most valuable is the IT Portfolio Management module."
"Its availability is very good."
"The support experience in Latin America is great."
"What I find the most valuable is the process workflow. It is really good."
"This is a complete package with all of the functionality that we need."
"It is very interactive."
"Enables development of any application, automation of any workflow including the GRC work processes."
"This solution helped us with the centralization of our governance data, so we could house all of our controls in one place. We could use that central repository of all our controls to build our risk management strategy and our policy and governance. So we could use controls as a central library and build policy, and then build risk management around it."
"RSA is a very rich application. I like its adaptive suggestion, where based on your users and the class of data, it can actually recommend you the proper control to choose. For example, we have been using PCI DSS as an NIST. So based on application feedback, it will provide you with a suggestion on which control objective needs to be set. Based on that, you can make a decision—you don't need to take the suggestion, but you can customize that particular provided suggestion. RSA Archer's workflow is also good, in terms of process automation."
"Easy to implement with a high level of automation."
"RSA Archer is a good tool and I have found performing the application, ISMS, and TPRM assessments beneficial."
"The solution has improved my organization by having everything combined to a single platform."
"Solution is scalable."
"RSA Archer has reduced the time and effort required for meetings."
"This product is expensive and would be improved by lowering its price."
"The initial setup can be quite complex at first."
"Better documentation and training would be helpful."
"The initial setup is a little complex."
"Lacking more out of the box integrations."
"MEGA HOPEX's problem is that it is expensive, but it's a fantastic tool."
"MEGA HOPEX's initial setup could be easier. The newer version is better but they still need to improve the process. The deployment took approximately four to eight hours."
"It would be great if this solution could integrate with other tools such as ITSM (ServiceNow) or CMDB."
"In terms of what can be improved, our client always says their user experience, IU/UX in RSA Archer. They found it is not as user friendly as other tools."
"RSA Archer's best features are advanced workflow, reports, dashboards, and notifications."
"Some of the error reporting isn't very clear. When you're looking for information on error codes, you got to do a lot of digging."
"Solution could use more inbuilt applications."
"There were so many problems that we had found. One time, the search index was not working. We also faced slowness in Archer, but I resolved this issue."
"GUI could be improved."
"It would be nice if RSA Archer featured more customization. When customers are updating, they should be notified whether certain updates are optional. The install screen should not proceed to the next page unless we make some selections about which updates we want to install."
"If you need to integrate the RSA products with another SEIM solution, then it doesn't work properly."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the MEGA HOPEX solution.
PeerSpot user Kayode A., Enterprise Architecture Consultant at ZealHosts Consulting, says, “What I find the most valuable is the process workflow. It is really good. The fact that you can decompose is also valuable, as is the file D structure. Also, the fact that you can have your own logical repository structure and you can drag and drop is very valuable. This is largely because of its intuitiveness. Once you understand the logic behind the tool, MEGA HOPEX is quite intuitive. I also like the ability to create custom reports. I like the fact that you can share repository content via web to other end users who are not architects.”
A Software Architect at a transportation company mentions, “The main feature that we like the most is the ability to have a unique repository where all the architects can interact and play together with the shapes of different architecture solutions. They have a unified repository where users can share the developments they're working on. Its availability is very good.”
An IT Consulting Manager at a tech services company comments, "We have many use cases for this solution but the feature I have found most valuable is the IT Portfolio Management module."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the RSA Archer solution.
A Specialist, RSA Archer at a tech services company, says, “RSA Archer is a valuable tool because it can manage the end-to-end functioning of any enterprise GRC module, such as compliance and risk management or business continuity plans and the entire BCM module. RSA Archer also provides many out-of-the-box solutions, which are use cases derived from the standards for GRC or risk management, governance, and compliance. It provides an end-to-end mechanism for business users on a single platform. That includes reporting, managing workflow, creating documentation, or tracking a process where you need to get approval from the various levels within the organization's hierarchy.”
PeerSpot user Krishnendu S., Vice President at a financial services firm, mentions, "It is enterprise-wide accessible. So, it is very helpful for all the employees in our bank. They can log in and do their risk management activities. It has a few inbuilt modules that are helpful for doing risk management activities, such as issue management, risk identification, risk assessment, and policy exception management. It also has some inbuilt workflows inside these modules. They are also helpful."
A Sr. Internal Auditor at an energy/utilities company comments, "Its user interface is pretty neat, and there is flexibility in generating the data. You can customize reports at any level. You can directly get reports in Tableau format. If you want to generate statistical data, you can create reports with graphs. There is an adequate amount of flexibility for changing the format, the type of graphs, etc."
Another PeerSpot user, Manash B., Technology Manager at a tech services company, explains, "RSA is a very rich application.
