RSA Archer Primary Use Case

Security Specialist at a tech consulting company with 1-10 employees

I am developing applications in Archer from RSA (Rivest, Shamir, and Adelman). It is quite easy to implement the application. You just configure the workflow, define the forms and how the data is processed in the application. Everything can be configured without coding. You can use a code also to create special functionalities, but it is easy to do almost everything without coding at all.

Specialist - RSA Archer at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees

I'm an administrator for RSA Archer and a consultant, so I create platforms for various businesses based on their requirements. RSA Archer is a GRC tool, so RSA Archer controls and regulates different enterprise GRC solutions and IRM modules. I create those platforms for various business users according to their specifications. They provide us with the storyline, and then we advise them on ways to use RSA Archer to manage their processes. And then, once that is done, we create an RSA Archer platform.

Technology Manager at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees

My use cases of RSA Archer are for WISP and controls-based audit purposes. For WISP, we keep the information security, like written informed consent protocol, and I manage almost 15 applications that I need to review the architecture of. I use RSA Archer to review the design document, the zone the application is hosted in, whether there is any kind of zoning division, the cryptography design, the cryptography used for data in motion, and what encryption they're using. 

Other than that, we have been using RSA Archer for a controls baseline. We had policies set up earlier and, based on those policies, control objectives were stated in RSA Archer for each and every application. 

This solution is deployed on-premise.

Archer developer

There are six to seven use cases currently. Most of the time, clients request a customized application. Right now, we're using RSA Archer for risk and issue management— like building a risk registry. We'll respond to risks using findings in the risk registry. So we'll set policies for risk discrimination and acceptance based on inherent and residual risk. We have all kinds of environments, covering DEV, SIT, and UIT. Currently, we have 6.9 Service Pack 2.

Vice President and Risk Management at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

For Archer, today there is everything from risk management to looking at security and how to track all the security defects. We don't have Archer connected to ServiceNow. We had the better version when I was at Albertsons. Just before I joined UFG, we used it not only tracking deficiencies, but also doing all the risk work and all of the vulnerability management, but we tied it to ServiceNow so we could issue tickets and track stuff. That's the way to do it.

Our primary use case of this solution is for GRC. I work for a bank and we used this tool to audit our information security team and our cybersecurity team. We had our control library, regulatory requirements, and third-party risks on Archer. So basically, I would say audit, regulatory requirements, third-party risk management solutions, and all kinds of controls, including SOX. These are the integrations we had set up. Right now, it's deployed on-prem.

Archer Developer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

Archer is a repository tool that is leveraged by all the security teams across the firm. The analysts and architects use it to store their data and store the vulnerabilities, which are coming from other applications while scanning the devices and everything. 

My job is to integrate the other applications with this application and try to bring all the data from those applications in here and create a workflow, environment, and framework for the different teams to use those records or vulnerabilities to  make a decision on what they should do. It just makes their life easier.

We are using the solution on-premises, but we are going on the cloud next year.

Principal Consultant at a transportation company with 1,001-5,000 employees

RSA Archer is a governance tool, used especially for bank applications. At the same time, there is the NetWitness tool, a SIEM solution that was created by the RSA division. They have integrated the incident management, along with RSA Archer. Whenever the SIEM solution creates alerts, Archer can be triggered, and you can elect notifications to your mailbox. 

If you click on the link, it'll link to you the actual incident, what happened in cybersecurity. You can do a number of things, like a workflow and approval from the manager level.
