EMC kicks off 2010 tech M&A with Archer buy

Posted by: Beth Pariseau

EMC today became the first storage company to make an acquisition in 2010, although it’s acquisition of Archer Technologies falls mostly outside the storage space.

EMC will sell Archer’s IT governance software as part of its RSA security division. The vendor did not disclose the acquisition price.

Archer makes a set of software products as well as a framework that ties them all together. The Policy, Risk, Compliance, Enterprise, Incident, Vendor, Threat, Business Continuity, and Audit Management software titles and the Archer SmartSuite Framework are designed to automate corporate compliance policies, analyze risks and demonstrate compliance with regulations.

According to an EMC press release, Archer has more than six million licensed users and a client list that includes 25 of the Fortune 100. The Archer portfolio will be integrated with RSA’s data loss prevention (DLP) and security information and event management (SIEM) products, as well as EMC’s Ionix data center orchestration suite. Archer products also will be sold as software as a service (SaaS), in keeping with EMC/VMware’s various cloud computing initiatives.

Archer brings with it a business continuity software module, which could affect those who manage disaster recovery in the storage environment. It also extends EMC’s move to inject automation into its software offerings, which we’ve seen in the storage market with last month’s first release of FAST, and is a part of EMC’s vision for archiving and e-Discovery.

RSA senior product manager Paul Stamp said in an email to Storage Soup that Archer will also have some relevance within EMC’s Content Management and Archiving platform. “Archer complements what EMC does within the Content Management & Archiving division because it can check [governance, risk and compliance] GRC against internal and external policies, delivering a CIO or CISO a view on compliance with policies,” he wrote. “CM&A does eDiscovery and information governance via solutions such as SourceOne and Kazeon, both of which are complementary to Archer and EMC’s larger GRC strategy.”
