nCircle Upgrades Security, Compliance Software

SAN FRANCISCO -- nCircle, the leader in automated security and compliance auditing solutions, today announced the latest version of its Suite360 Intelligence Hub (SIH), the advanced reporting and analytics solution for nCircle Suite360. SIH 2.1 is the world's first and only solution to incorporate automated asset value assignment, saving valuable time and delivering an order of magnitude improvement in prioritizing security and compliance remediation tasks. Suite360 Intelligence Hub 2.1 also adds features that simplify audits and user management including role-based access control, flexible asset grouping, and integration with Microsoft Active Directory.

Today's economic challenges are increasing pressure on IT organizations to improve security and compliance with fewer resources. "Senior executives and other business managers are demanding more action-oriented reporting on security organizations' activities and progress, and this trend will continue. IT and security budgets will become more constrained, and the demand that security organizations do more with less will intensify," noted Gartner Analyst Jeffrey Wheatman, in The Do's and Don'ts of Information Security Metrics, October 2008. The latest release of nCircle Suite360 Intelligence Hub is designed to ease the administrative burden of security and compliance auditing through increased automation, centralized management, and robust segregation of duties.
