Enforce security policies, prove compliance
IT security plays an increasingly vital role in IT planning and budgeting decisions.
Even if you've made a large investment in the technology and talent required to manage security issues, you may feel, as many IT professionals do, that security remains a persistent and stressful challenge.
Your security plan must incorporate configuration management, so that you can know what's happening across your infrastructure at all times — when changes happen, and the nature of those changes — and so that you can continuously enforce your security policies.
This paper examines the key security benefits of configuration management and situational awareness, including how to:
- Establish a Standard Operating Environment (SOE) and meet IT security standards.
- Report on and control configuration drift, and provide change remediation.
- Support audit requirements and forensic analysis.
- Assist with security patch management.
