Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 1, 2007
SignaCert® Inc., the leading provider of independent IT controls solutions, today announced a major upgrade to its Enterprise Trust Server, the only technology of its kind to definitively prove that IT systems remain exactly as intended in production. The numerous usability improvements include increased flexibility and enhanced reporting functionality, from console-based dashboards to customizable reports, which verify device integrity down to the binary level. The upgrade enables scenarios such as “exact match” that no other product can achieve.
The technology behind the Enterprise Trust Server was recently acknowledged with the issuance of United States patent #7,272,719. The patent applies to SignaCert’s unique method of generating signatures and assembling them into an integrity log for integrity verification and measurement against a known and trusted reference.
“When the company launched last January, SignaCert’s goal was to have the most comprehensive, detailed software verification system on the market – something no one else was – or is – doing. The patent acknowledges that SignaCert has created unique and proprietary technology,” said Frank Tycksen, VP of Engineering for SignaCert. “Working with new technology, it was important that we listen to what customers had to say; the latest enhancements are a result of their input.”
Key features of Enterprise Trust Server 1.5 include:
- One-to-many verification: Compares multiple devices with a single integrity reference to pinpoint deviations.
- Scalable and flexible: SignaCert’s database of authentic signatures validates many scenarios required for understanding IT systems – from identifying what software versions are present on devices, to ensuring that only approved software is installed, to proving that a group of devices match their specified standard build precisely.
- Enhanced reporting: Reports deliver meaningful actionable information. A comprehensive dashboard provides high level view of which systems and devices have deviations and allows drill down to the exact device and the specific deviations. Reports are extensible; ETS allows connectivity to external reporting packages and middleware solutions.
- Fine grain visibility: Find every deviation down to the binary level, but also correlate the deviations individually or in groups to the package level: the product, application, build, or version to which is belongs.
About Enterprise Trust Server
SignaCert Enterprise Trust Server (ETS) (http://www.signacert.com/products/enterprise-trust-server/) is an appliance-based independent IT control solution used to evaluate an enterprise right down to the discrete files that make up each system. While traditional system monitoring tools measure hardware, ETS gives you the same independent controls to measure software by capturing, organizing, and comparing the reality of what's running on IT systems against a proven trusted reference. This helps achieve increased availability, greater control and security, and helps meet regulatory compliance for Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, FISMA, and others by maintaining a historical audit trail of all changes over time. ETS definitively proves that the systems are exactly the same in ongoing production as they were when they were deployed or provides a detailed list of any deviations – with the benefit of no interruption to the current deployment process.
Founded in 2004 by industry veteran, Wyatt Starnes, SignaCert delivers independent IT controls that provide a deeper understanding into enterprise systems and prove applications are deployed as intended. SignaCert’s products are available directly from the company. For more information, visit http://www.signacert.com.
