Archer focuses primarily on the non-technical aspects of GRC. The core of the product is a central framework within which a customer can use various modules that target the issues that an information security practitioner might experience within a regulated industry. For example:

  • Policy Management addresses the need of information security practitioners to author, organize and publish policy.
  • Vendor Management provides tools to manage vendor relationships and track adherence to contractual obligations.
  • Incident Management allows you to manage the workflow associated with a security breach.
There's no installation to speak of, as the recommended customer interface is a Web portal for an ASP-type service offering. (Customers can also choose to host the product.)

Admins use their interface to create users and groups, modify roles, permissions and security parameters of the system, manage content, or change the appearance of the portal. However, the real magic happens within the customizable interfaces for the installed modules.
