McLean, VA (PRWEB) July 02, 2011
ControlCase has released the ControlCase Log Manager solution to enable organizations to effectively and efficiently manage the rising cost of regulatory compliance audits. Regulations such as the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) have put businesses under increasing pressure to implement long-term data retention strategies; those that fail to do so risk incurring fines and losing customer confidence. ControlCase Log Manager automatically collects log information from diverse IT environments and technologies to provide an intelligent layer of analysis and documentation to meet specific PCI compliance demands (v6.1 is compliant to PCI-DSS 2.0 log management requirements). This information not only ensures compliance, but provides a business with trend analysis which can be used to identify potential improvements to overall information security. In summary, the log management solution:
+ Responds to regulatory demands: satisfies regulatory and organizational log retention requirements cost effectively;
+ Automates IT compliance: eliminates manual compliance and security reporting processes; and,
+ Reduces administrative overheads and provides business intelligence: monitors, measures and manages risk and compliance for critical business/IT processes.
File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) is a significant regulatory requirement of PCI. Unmonitored systems are susceptible to unauthorized changes which can result in operational downtime, security or confidentiality infringements and compliance violations. With ControlCase’s Log Manager, organizations can now conduct widespread monitoring and reporting of IT related systems so that discrepancies can be detected quickly and acted upon.
Moreover, the solution looks inside files and compares actual settings against policy-based benchmarks to determine compliance; therefore network administrators will immediately know which settings and configurations are not in a compliant state and what steps need to be taken to remedy the situation. In summary, the FIM solution:
+ Meets PCI DSS requirements;
+ Seamlessly integrates with ControlCase’s log management solution to correlate logs with vulnerabilities and configuration issues;
+ Detects unauthorized changes to IT systems, applications and sensitive data;
+ Schedules automated integrity checks; and
+ Provides comprehensive reporting tools.
Log management and File Integrity Monitoring can be deployed as a module within the IT GRC solution or bundled with ControlCase Managed Compliance services.
“We have extensive knowledge of new and emerging requirements, which means that any software releases we issue meet a specific business need,” said Kishor Vaswani, ControlCase CEO. “These enhancements will reduce the time taken to manage log data and perform IT forensics; eradicating the administrative headache many IT departments face when trying to attain and maintain compliance. Obtaining auditable data can take hundreds of man hours and many companies waste limited resource by doing this rather than concentrating on the advancement and maintenance of critical business applications. Through our solutions, the whole process can be streamlined and more accurate data retrieved.”
