Compliance and risk management from Lumension

Lumension Security : 23 September, 2009  (New Product)
Lumension Risk Manager provides IT managers with greater visibility of risks based on compliance with policies and regulations
Lumension has unveiled an enhanced Compliance and IT Risk Management solution that enables organisations to continuously monitor compliance and IT risk posture while reducing the overall cost of compliance.

The new Lumension Risk Manager helps organisations achieve lower TCO by streamlining IT audit processes, harmonising controls with policy requirements, and providing greater IT risk visibility for optimal security and compliance

A typical organisation spends 30-50% more on compliance and IT risk policy management than it should, according to the IT Policy Compliance Group. Given today's highly regulated business environment combined with the rising cost of compliance, organisations need a comprehensive solution that provides high visibility and continuous monitoring of their compliance and IT risk posture, while supporting greater levels of automation across audit workflows.

In an effort to continually arm customers with technology solutions that address their growing security and compliance needs, Lumension, the global leader in endpoint management and security, today announced the general availability of the Lumension Risk Manager (LRM) product, the latest addition to its Lumension Compliance and IT Risk Management Solution.

Lumension Risk Manager helps organisations achieve lower the costs of compliance by automating IT audit workflows, harmonising controls with policy requirements, and providing greater visibility across IT assets for optimal security and compliance management.

Further, through a partnership with Network Frontiers, Lumension has integrated the Unified Compliance Framework within Lumension Risk Manager. This integration delivers a library of over 400 authoritative documents and 2500 harmonised controls. Periodic updates to the UCF framework ensure customers will always have the latest compliance and control requirements.

Lumension Risk Manager is further enhanced with the patent-pending Lumension Risk Intelligence Engine. This technology automatically identifies control requirements for compliance regulations and is determined by the IT assets' risk profile inputs. This automated capability allows organisations to quickly identify controls required to support multiple compliance and policy initiatives and reduce their dependence on outside consultants.

This new offering from Lumension speaks to the company's commitment to delivering on its compliance product roadmap, as outlined during the acquisition of Securityworks earlier this year.

Key Benefits of Lumension Compliance and IT Risk Management:

* Reduction in External Audit Resources: Lumension Compliance and IT Risk Management Solution provides IT organisations with a comprehensive compliance and IT Risk Management framework. IT resources are associated with critical business interests, and harmonised controls are established to meet multiple compliance and policy mandates. This capability supports a reduction in third party consulting resources used to define control and policy requirements to support external regulatory mandates.

* Assess Once, Comply with Many: With Lumension Compliance and IT Risk Management Solution, organisations can reduce their audit burden and overall cost of compliance by measuring and reporting on compliance across multiple industry and governmental regulations while harmonising control requirements to best meet these mandates. These capabilities will enable organisations to assess once and report on many regulations simultaneously, rather than using multiple technologies that usually lack a complete, global view of regulations.

* Focus on IT risk that matters most to the business: With Lumension Compliance and IT Risk Management Solution, companies can continuously monitor their overarching risk and compliance posture and proactively identify and prioritise IT risk deficiencies in the context of their overall compliance and policy requirements. This enhanced visibility allows organisations to more efficiently utilise existing IT resources to address those deficiencies impacting organisational compliance and IT risk posture the most.
