Horsham, UK â April 12, 2006 â Iconium Limited, a leading UK developer of corporate governance and compliance solutions today announced a new security and compliance monitoring solution designed to allow corporations to bridge the security and compliance gap, whilst achieving substantial savings on their IT security investment. Customers will benefit from improved security event monitoring, audit log consolidation and powerful compliance reporting capabilities. The new solution will be demonstrated at InfoSecurity Europe 2006, 25-27 April, Olympia on the MPW Associates Limited Stand, #G765.
The solution aims to reduce on-going operational risk by collecting and collating real-time security event data and comparing normalised results against user defined business policies. By actively linking to internal information security policies and procedures, organisations can now fully understand internal security threats, policy infringements and even compliance breaches, enabling them to dramatically improve their security posture.
âThe risks associated with security breaches are immense, especially those related to reputation. As a result, compliance and risk committees are focusing heavily on internal security strategies that improve security awareness, minimise potential risk areas and provide the ability to demonstrate defensibility,â said Nigel Kilpatrick, Sales & Marketing Director, Iconium Limited. âOur end user research validates that this unique initiative is directly addressing their main concern of strengthening the relationship between business policies and security enforcement. Security Manager 3.0 is applicable to a range of industry verticals, and will be especially attractive to those looking to improve security but who have limited human resources.
Built on a business intelligent architecture, Security Manager 3.0 provides enterprise-wide centralised and consolidated monitoring of servers, workstations and all SNMP devices in real-time. Other key features include:
â¢ Alerting and Escalation -- automatically alerts to any individual involved in monitoring security within an organisation. Alerts can be processed from IT systems and related to policy or control information. In turn, the solution will also escalate compliance breaches related to dates, required actions or controls.
â¢ Comprehensive and Secure Auditing â delivers secure audit trails for all historical event information related to owners, actions and changes across the entire system. As audit trails cannot be erased the solution provides trusted evidence for auditing and legal purposes.
â¢ Web Functionality â is web-based and accessible from any point within an organisation. It can also be made available to third parties if required.
â¢ Dashboard Facility âprovides users with a comprehensive, business-intelligence driven compliance dashboard.
