Digital News Report – EMC, a company that started out selling office furniture during the 1970s but now is a leader in data storage products, announced they have signed a “definitive” agreement to buy Kansas-based Archer Technologies.
Archer is a provider of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) software. EMC said in a statement that the purchase will “significantly extend EMC’s powerful solutions portfolio for visualizing and managing risk, enabling customers to automate GRC visibility and policy enforcement across both physical and virtualized IT environments.”
The company says that Archer delivers 6 million licensed users and will integrate sustainable GRC solutions for managing the lifecycle of corporate policies and objectives.
