Symantec Intros Suite

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced Symantec Control Compliance Suite, an upgrade to the bv-Control portfolio of products that helps customers reduce the cost and complexity of IT policy compliance through automated assessment of policies against industry regulations, standards and best practices. Symantec Control Compliance Suite’s new data gathering functions such as agentless reporting and database discovery offer a comprehensive solution for IT control compliance reporting across disparate platforms, providing a cost-effective method for managing global IT risks.

More than 4,000 customers worldwide currently have Symantec Control Compliance Suite components installed, relying on these automated tools to efficiently govern their IT compliance posture by detecting drift from secure baselines, identifying accounts with blank passwords, and notifying the organization when administrative accounts receive new members.

Customers are offered unparalleled auditing capabilities with hundreds of ready-to-run reports using easy customization options and flexible audit creation in each environment to improve internal and external audits. IT administrators are able to be proactive in even the most resource-constrained environments by automating tasks enterprise-wide. This automated functionality helps to streamline compliance with such regulations as Sarbanes-Oxely, FISMA, or HIPAA, while dramatically reducing the costs of doing regular audits.

“As organizations continue to face stringent IT policy compliance requirements, Symantec is committed to helping customers define what they would like to be compliant to, control their IT environment to achieve compliance, and help them govern that compliance posture over time,” said Arshad Matin, vice president, compliance and security management, Symantec Corp. “Symantec Control Compliance Suite reduces costs associated with compliance by automating the management of deviations from technical standards and providing the ability to effectively remediate misconfigurations.”
