					         Integrated IT Compliance Solution for Advanced Security and IT GRC

In today’s digital world, ensuring information security is highly important. This is because
businesses hold sensitive information about their employees, personal staff details, salary
information, client lists, financial results, bank account details, business plans, marketing and
sales information, trade secrets, research and other information, etc., that give them a
competitive advantage. With cyber-crime becoming increasingly sophisticated and highly
pervasive, there is need for protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of
information. This calls for an effective threat management solution that will protect
information and information systems in a much more effective way than normal firewalls, virus
scanners and protection suites.

As per the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database, a dictionary of publicly
known information security vulnerabilities and exposures, there are 60,000+ common
vulnerabilities, 900+ common weaknesses, 1014+ common configuration errors, over 150,000
security related events, and a large number of application related errors. Hence, with the aim of
protecting the interests of the customers, the federal government today has introduced several
regulations such as HIPAA, HITECH, PCI DSS, ISO, SOX, ISO, COBIT and so on, which the
enterprises have to comply with at any cost. In such a scenario, enterprises require effective IT
compliance solutions to assess their level of security and compliance to the latest security and
compliance regulations.

Instead of depending on point solutions, enterprises must invest in integrated IT compliance
solutions that enable end-to-end integration of advanced security monitoring and IT-
Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) so that customers have a unified view of both
operational security posture and compliance management software. The following are some of
its advantages.

       Solve multiple data-centric information security challenges that include advanced
       persistent threat detection, data leakage, insider threats, malware analysis, continuous
       controls verification, and network e-discovery
       Deliver a holistic solution for security and IT-GRC with easy monitoring through an
       integrated dashboard
       Provide end-to-end automation of all enterprise security, compliance, audit, and risk
       management needs
       Simplify and reduce the time required for security monitoring, regulatory compliance
       and the certification process

Thus with advanced IT compliance solution, both government and commercial organizations
gain better visibility into threats and risks from multiple sources.
