RSA Unveils Business-Driven Security Offering

RSA, which since September is part of Dell Technologies, on Monday unveiled a new approach and product improvements designed to help organizations manage cyber risk.

With its new Business-Driven Security architecture, RSA aims to provide organizations the tools needed to link security information to business context and protect the most sensitive assets.

The RSA Business-Driven Security solutions focus on threat detection and response, consumer fraud protection, identity and access assurance, and business risk management.

This includes the RSA NetWitness Suite, which provides visibility and actionable insight for detecting advanced threats and understanding the full scope of an incident. The new capabilities added to the product enable organizations to monitor any infrastructure by collecting data from public clouds (e.g. AWS, Microsoft Azure), virtual environments, and physical infrastructure.RSA launches new solution

The launch of Business-Driven Security also brings improvements to RSA SecurID Access. RSA says the multi-factor authentication and access management product now offers a better way for delivering strong security to users, devices and applications.

The latest release of the RSA Fraud & Risk Intelligence Suite brings a centralized platform designed to improve fraud detection and investigation. The new platform should enable organizations to better protect their customers against cyberattacks by allowing them to obtain additional insights, including from internal and external sources, and other anti-fraud tools.

The offering also includes the RSA Archer Ignition Program, which helps organizations manage business risk through a combination of Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) use cases, quick launch services and education offerings.

Finally, the Business-Driven Security architecture is operationalized via the new RSA Risk & Cybersecurity Practice. The practice aims to reduce business risk through risk management, identity assurance, incident response, and advanced cyber defense.

“Despite best efforts, today’s security approaches are in dire need of transformation because they fall short when they are put into action. This forces organizations into a downward cycle of investment and re-investment,” said Rohit Ghai, President, RSA. “RSA is proud to provide a new architecture and array of Business-Driven Security solutions that are engineered to enable the most critical elements of a sound security strategy: linking business context with security incidents to more strategically address and manage business risk to protect what matters most.”
