In the BCMP Magic Quadrant report, Gartner states that “organizations need a consistent and repeatable process for all aspects of BCMP development and execution. With the growing focus on resilience in day-to-day business operations — rather than on out-of-band response and recovery activities only — BCMPs need to demonstrate maturity, status and effectiveness on an ongoing basis, not just once a year.” RSA Archer use cases for Business Resiliency bring together incident response; business impact analysis; recovery planning, testing and activation; and crisis management – all critical components of a program positioned to build resiliency throughout the organization.
Gartner also states that “the critical capabilities of BCMP solutions center on providing business leaders with a more effective means of evaluating operational risks and business impacts, as well as planning for, responding to, recovering from and restoring after a business disruption.” The RSA Archer Business Resiliency solution integrates with operational risk management, security and third-party risk use cases to dramatically improve coordination, alignment, and visibility across these often-separate functions.
Finally, Gartner defines “optimal BCMP solutions as holistic, addressing the following critical capabilities: ease of use and configuration; dashboarding and reporting; and BCM tool integration.” RSA Archer offers out-of-the box capabilities that are highly configurable, along with best-in-class dashboarding and reporting. The RSA Archer Business Continuity & IT Disaster Recovery Planning and RSA Archer Crisis Management use cases are integrated with emergency mass notification and mobile partners, to put RSA Archer in the hands of people on the move during a disaster.
