Symantec's Control and Compliance Suite 11 Cuts IT Governance Chaos
Symantec's Control Compliance Suite 11 is the latest version of the company's enterprise-class IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) package. It features the new Control Compliance Suite Risk Manager module, which enables security specialists to better understand and communicate risks to the business environment from their IT infrastructure. Risk Manager translates technical issues into risks relevant to business processes, delivers customized views of IT risk for different stakeholders and helps prioritize remediation efforts based on business criticality rather than technical severity. CCS11 also supports the integration of third-party security products, giving administrators a unified view of the security and risk status of an enterprise network. Ticket-generation and remediation tools bring complete control of the risk-management process, helping administrators automate much of the process. Dashboard customization allows administrators to create custom views of risks as well as the status of specific risks and remediation efforts, ensuring that high-risk issues do not go unnoticed. Policy creation is driven by workflow design, which incorporates wizards to make sure policies are executed and applied correctly.
