LONDON -- ArcSight, Inc., a leader in enterprise security and compliance management solutions, today introduced ArcSight Network Configuration Manager(tm) (NCM) 4.2, an industry-leading network configuration and compliance management solution. ArcSight also introduced the ArcSight NCM Audit Package for Cisco, a CIS (Center for Internet Security)-certified set of controls and reports for managing, monitoring and auditing Cisco(r)-based networks. The new package uses the latest CIS benchmark, version 2.2, for Cisco Router IOS(r) and Cisco PIX(r) firewalls. The ArcSight NCM Audit Package for Cisco offers a real-world, measurable baseline for compliance standards that lack defined compliance processes, such as SOX and HIPAA.
Key benefits of ArcSight NCM and ArcSight NCM Audit Package for Cisco are as follows:
- The solution automatically monitors the full set of 90-plus auditing requirements against Cisco routers and firewalls and provides active remediation to audit violations to avoid network disruptions.
- Easy-to-use point-and-click authoring of audit controls allows organisations to quickly create and modify the CIS audit controls to their individual compliance needs without requiring programming.
- ArcSight dramatically simplifies network configuration and compliance management through intuitive, role-based wizards that minimise the demands placed on overburdened network engineers.
- The secure, hardened appliance protects valuable network
configurations and at the same time is easy to deploy and delivers a low total cost of ownership.
