"IT managers are searching for solutions that deliver knowledge to assist them in breaking down general regulations into specific checks, reports and remediation," said Matt Dircks, senior vice president of Systems and Security Management Products at NetIQ, in an announcement. "There is a general lack of clarity and alignment between business owners and the IT organization."
NetIQ's Standard edition of the Security Compliance Suite is made up of NetIQ Vulnerability Manager[TM] and the Log Manager module of NetIQ Security Manager[TM]. It includes the following functionality for Windows environments:
* Log Management: Collects, consolidates and analyzes all audit logs in one easy-to-use interface.
* Policy Compliance: Quickly and regularly assesses all systems' configurations for compliance with policy. Built-in templates are available to help customers assess and report compliance against multiple regulations, including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, GLBA, FERC and FDA.
* Configuration and Vulnerability Assessment: Assures that systems are up to date with the latest security patches and are not vulnerable or exploited by the latest malicious code.
The Enterprise edition includes the functionality of the Standard edition, and also provides real-time security monitoring through the Incident Manager module of NetIQ Security Manager. The Enterprise edition enables monitoring and alerting on policy changes, user account changes and suspicious network activity.
NetIQ Security Compliance Suite is being sold in sets of 25 server licenses. The Standard Edition is priced at $800 per server; the Enterprise Edition is priced at $1,120 per server.
