I've done a number of (high level) security practices reviews/audits as a consultant and this tool would be a huge benefit for both the auditors and clients.

SkyView Policy Minder for AIX automates the compliance processes and security administration procedures associated with an organization’s security policies. The product includes a web-based console for a centralized view of your AIX enterprise compliance status as well as access to reports from mulitple partitions. Reports are exception based, pinpointing what is out of compliance. The products FixIT funtionality automates the process of resetting values that are reported as out of compliance. Using the console one can launch compliance checks and fixes to security policy deviations across multiple AIX partitions. It also includes a comprehensive message log for administrative tracking and debug. Security policies can be initialized – that is, current settings can be discovered and used as the security policy setting. In addition configuration settings can be imported from a predefined file to assist in initial security setup for new partitions. The information sheet on the product includes a comprehensive list of the features available.
Carol Woodbury, President of SkyView Partners Inc. noted "The product has a well rounded feature set. The FixIt function will also be useful for administrators for configuring new partitions. They can simply import the appropriate configuration settings from a pre-defined file and run FixIt on the new partition.”
Dan Frissora, an independent consultant contracted by LarsonAllen and others, commented, “Thinking of my most recent experience with clients, the power of the SkyView Policy Minder for AIX toolset is really driven home. These clients, usually small to medium sized businesses with between $10 million and a $100 million in revenue, are generally under-staffed, and often not very technical. As I recall these clients and the issues that they faced managing their systems, I can’t help but say that I am impressed with the simplicity and power of this tool. I've done a number of (high level) security practices reviews/audits as a consultant and this tool would be a huge benefit for both the auditors and clients."
