NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager audits system configurations and compares them to corporate policies, previous snapshots, and/or other systems. It also leverages this configuration information to reliably identify vulnerabilities and exposures, using the latest security updates.
Establishing a defensible posture for internal and external auditors means providing accurate and comprehensive documentation wherein IT controls are in place and enforced. IT security and operations teams must evaluate and audit systems against policies and known vulnerabilities, then eliminate known configuration errors and their root causes. As organizations build IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (IT GRC) programs, NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager provides the ideal platform for data collection and compliance monitoring.
NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager also allows you to demonstrate regulatory compliance and manage IT risks via scored reporting to direct remediation efforts toward issues of highest priority.
