EMC bridges IT/security gap

EMC announced the availability of a new integrated solution aimed at bridging the IT and security operations functions in support of improved compliance, risk management and cost control.

The solution is based on EMC’s Voyence Control product for Network
Change and Configuration Management (NCCM) and the RSA envision product
for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).

For the IT operations professional, this solution is designed to
provide the means to define and enforce configuration security
standards and to automatically conduct compliance tests on a regular

Successfully automating these policies along with standardized network
configuration management ensures data is available and secure and would
eliminate business risk from non-compliant devices, according to the
company. This would result in fewer service outages and reduced costs
associated with Service Level Agreement (SLA) penalties and trouble
ticket processing.

For the security operations professional, the solution is engineered to
provide three major benefits: 1) ensuring that network assets are
configured to reliably forward all log events to enVision (this is a
cornerstone of compliance reporting using SIEM solutions) 2)
immediately detecting changes to network asset configurations and
sending such changes to enVision to evaluate potential security risks
associated with those changes, and 3) for those changes deemed
inappropriate invoke a workflow-enabled process, closing the loop and
remediating the configuration to a secure and compliant state and
actively configuring the device as required.
