ATLANTA, April 16 /PRNewswire/ — Gideon Technologies today announced that its SecureFusion(TM) software now supports compliance measurement for Sun Solaris(TM), a UNIX operating system (OS). The SecureFusion suite can now continuously audit security and compliance settings on the Solaris OS.
SecureFusion software fully automates the network-wide measurement and reporting of enterprise compliance against internal and industry standards. The 100-percent agent-less solution now collects an accurate inventory of system configurations for the Solaris OS, adding to SecureFusion's ability to capture configuration details for Microsoft and Linux platforms.
SecureFusion provides insight into critical configuration and security management issues, including installed software, file sharing, user access, system patches and end-user controlled security settings. SecureFusion also continuously evaluates Solaris system configurations against corporate policies. Asset, vulnerability, configuration and policy management data can be viewed from an executive dashboard that includes prioritization and workflow as well as dynamic, comprehensive reporting.
"Many enterprises rely on the Sun Solaris OS and need an automated, agent- less solution for meeting compliance requirements," said Kenneth Halley, CEO of Gideon Technologies. "SecureFusion has answered this need with continuous auditing that enables the ongoing compliance measurement required for PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and other standards. Our solution delivers accurate and repeatable audits that won't burden internal resources."
SecureFusion integrates four critical compliance measurement functions, including:
— SecureFusion Asset Discovery — discovers and inventories all networks and network assets, including managed and unmanaged devices. — SecureFusion Configuration Management — maintains an inventory of system configurations, including technical controls, software, user accounts and system changes. — SecureFusion Vulnerability Management — conducts ongoing vulnerability detection and reporting for operating systems, infrastructure, network applications and databases. — SecureFusion Policy Management — continuously evaluates system configuration and compliance with standards and policies.
SecureFusion is designed for rapid deployment with no impact to the network and no need to modify desktops or servers. The SecureFusion Configuration Management module provides an authenticated, deep analysis of technology assets on the Solaris OS. It includes several hundred of the most common asset configuration IT control checks out of the box and can be configured to capture more based on specific needs. Additional benefits include immediate results with no operational impact, verification of patch deployments, automated audit preparation, robust scheduling, and customizable configuration checks.
