RSA creates a wide range of industry-leading products that allow customers to take control of risk. Whether those risks stem from external cyber threats, identity and access management challenges, online fraud, compliance pressure or any number of other business and technology issues.

The RSA NetWitness® Platform, our industry-leading threat detection and response platform, leverages logs, packets, endpoints and cyber threat intelligence, in addition to machine learning and security analytics technologies, to speed detection of the most advanced and elusive threats, uncover the full scope of a compromise, and help automate incident response.

Our RSA SecurID® Suite is a comprehensive identity and access management solution that delivers capabilities for authentication, access management, risk analytics, identity governance and user lifecycle management, and it supports cloud-based and on-premises systems.

RSA Archer is our best-of-breed integrated risk management solution, empowering public- and private-sector enterprises to manage multiple dimensions of risk using industry standards, best practices, and a single, configurable, integrated software platform.

With fraud detection rates up to 95 percent, the RSA Fraud & Risk Intelligence Suite protects over 8,000 global customers and has prevented over $8B in fraud losses. 60 billion transactions -- over 6% of the entire global e-commerce card spend -- were protected with Adaptive Authentication for eCommerce and over 1 million cybersecurity attacks were thwarted!
