Cover of Maximizing IT Security with Configuration Management

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.
