Making virtual more compliant than physical
Virtualization technology poses a challenge for IT organizations seeking to maintain security and regulatory compliance. Many of the standard practices for monitoring, complying with and enforcing corporate policies or industry regulations are challenged when migrating physical environments to virtual ones. Government agencies, financial institutions, healthcare and other regulated organizations are increasingly being tasked with addressing compliance issues up-front when mapping out their virtualization deployment strategies. By identifying and addressing compliance challenges early on, deployment plans can continue unabated and on-schedule and the new virtualized data centers can be even more secure than the traditional ones they are replacing.
Catbird vCompliance is comprehensive: it monitors and audits more controls required by the leading regulatory standards organizations and supports the widest array of common security frameworks. vCompliance includes default policies for PCI, HIPAA, FISMA, SOX/COBIT and DIACAP; each policy is built upon Catbird controls which map to the appropriate compliance framework.
All the security Control Components are VM-aware and automatically configured, enabling the vSecurity Control Center to correlate the applied policies to the most popular compliance frameworks. This closed loop approach validates the compliance requirements, providing demonstrable compliance that is mapped to specific sections of the compliance framework. Automated control configuration with Catbird TrustZones greatly reduces the time, effort, and costs required to demonstrate compliance during an audit. Catbird vSecurity offers the broadest set of automated compliance measurements in the industry as well as auditor ready reports and graphics.
Catbird understands the issues. vCompliance is one-stop shopping for compliance in the virtualized data center.
