This solution provides excellent reporting and monitoring of security policy compliance and keeps the user in line with corporate legal responsibilities.
The requirement to use PoliVec Builder for policy introduction may put some potential users off an effective solution.
A scaleable management tool that provides the backing for policy compliance and enforcement across distributed networks.
We've looked at PoliVec Builder in the past, a policy development tool from the same stable. Part of the PoliVec suite, PoliVec Enforcer integrates seamlessly with its policy development tool counterpart to keep the enterprise secure.
Therefore, policy can be locked down to stop system changes and policy non-compliance from weakening the protected network infrastructure. Extensive reporting enables a precise picture of your network and real-time monitoring ensures that notification of problems can be dealt with in a timely fashion.
PoliVec Enforcer uses the operating system-specific implementation standards, which translate policy statements into multiple operating systems policies.
Using a Java-based application provides a consistent feel across all supported platforms, and the navigation is simplified.
PoliVec Enforcer uses a technology called binary vector, which enables minimum bandwidth usage and less demand on system resources while providing information on all critical configuration of security settings across a distributed network.
Any problems are tracked in real time as alarms in the management console. These can then sent by email or pager to the appropriate authority for further investigation.
Installation is fairly quick, and by using PoliVec Builder to write policy a seamless integration is established. When purchasing the software a license file is provided; without this at your fingertips a delay will ensue.
Having installed the consoles you can then import your policy and set a default for each current OS on the network. Then you can start to enlist groups and contacts in configuring profiles and rules. The agents are then installed and allocated to the Agent Manager with the appropriate standards set.
With PoliVec Enforcer monitoring and reporting you can ensure that these critical policies are adhered to and keep you within the law, certainly as far as compliance goes.
