Archer Technologies and Nova Datacom Partner to Address Public Sector Governance, Risk and Compliance Needs

Leaders Collaborate to Give Government Customers a Purpose-Built Solution to Transform How They Manage Evolving Risk and Continuity of Operations (COOP) Challenges

OVERLAND PARK, KS and CHANTILLY, VA--(Marketwire - September 1, 2009) - Archer Technologies, a provider of enterprise governance, risk and compliance (E-GRC) solutions, and Nova Datacom, a provider of mission assurance solutions to the public and private sectors, today announced an exclusive partnership to empower federal and state agencies to implement a consistent, effective and sustainable GRC program that automates processes, increases transparency and lowers costs.

Together, Archer and Nova Datacom deliver an advanced solution tailored to meet the specific continuity of operations (COOP) and business continuity management (BCM) needs of public sector agencies, while providing seamless integration with other GRC functions, including policy and risk management. Based on the Archer Business Continuity Management solution, the Archer and Nova Datacom offering includes public sector terminology, processes, reporting capabilities and COOP best practices.

"We're very excited to be working with Archer Technologies. Archer's comprehensive GRC solution will allow us to better serve our clients in the Department of Defense, DISA, DOE, and other Civilian and Intelligence agencies," said Alex Cho, founder and chief technology officer of Nova Datacom. "Archer fits perfectly as the dashboard for our COOP offering."

Nova Datacom's exclusive partnership with Archer as the best-in-class GRC solution was determined after analyzing multiple GRC vendors in the marketplace. One high-profile federal agency has selected the joint solution, which is scheduled to be implemented in the coming weeks, and there is a strong pipeline of agency customers currently evaluating the new offering.

"Archer has become the go-to technology platform for GRC process automation for Fortune 1000 companies across multiple industries, and we are excited to partner with a trusted leader in Nova Datacom to deliver a unique solution set for the public sector," said Julian Waits, vice president of business development for Archer. "Our partnership with Nova Datacom ensures that our joint customers will have direct access to a best-in-class GRC solution to meet their specific and rapidly evolving needs."
