Enforcer Keeps Far-flung Systems in Check
PoliVec's newest product in its security policy automation software suite alerts administrators to changes to devices or services they want to manage.Startup PoliVec Inc. on Monday unveiled Enforcer, the third piece of its security policy automation software suite. The product, which has been in a limited beta for several months, gives security administrators the ability to constantly monitor their companys security policies and compare them against a predefined policy to look for any deviations. Enforcer places an agent on every device or service the administrator wants to manage. The agents periodically report back to the Agent Manager any changes that have taken place on the monitored systems.
The results are displayed in a console, and depending on the system affected and the gravity of the change, Enforcer can send an alert to the administrator via e-mail, pager or cell phone.
