Network compliance and configuration from ArcSight.

ArcSight : 03 December, 2007  (New Product)
Audit controls available with simple point and click for use with Cisco firewalls and other network security products.
ArcSight has introduced ArcSight Network Configuration Manager (NCM) 4.2, an
industry-leading network configuration and compliance management solution. ArcSight also introduced the ArcSight NCM Audit Package for Cisco, a CIS (Centre for Internet Security)-certified set of controls and reports for managing, monitoring and auditing Cisco-based networks. The new package uses the latest CIS benchmark, version 2.2, for Cisco Router
IOS and Cisco PIX firewalls. The ArcSight NCM Audit Package for Cisco offers a real-world, measurable baseline for compliance standards that lack defined compliance processes, such as SOX and HIPAA.

Key benefits of ArcSight NCM and ArcSight NCM Audit Package for Cisco
are as follows:.

- The solution automatically monitors the full set of 90-plus auditing requirements against Cisco routers and firewalls and provides active remediation to audit violations to avoid network disruptions.

- Easy-to-use point-and-click authoring of audit controls allows organisations to quickly create and modify the CIS audit controls to their individual compliance needs without requiring programming.

- ArcSight dramatically simplifies network configuration and compliance management through intuitive, role-based wizards that minimise the demands placed on overburdened network engineers.

- The secure, hardened appliance protects valuable network configurations and at the same time is easy to deploy and delivers a low total cost of ownership.

"ArcSight is improving the security of enterprise networks by shipping out-of-the-box CIS-certified audit controls in an appliance-based network configuration and compliance management solution,' said Tom Reilly, president and COO of ArcSight. 'As part of this new offering, ArcSight is shipping a dramatically simplified, point-and-click authoring environment for tailoring the controls for a company's specific needs. In addition, ArcSight NCM 4.2 offers wizard-driven change provisioning that changes the game for productivity in the administration and enforcement of network policy.'

'With ArcSight NCM there are no manual processes involved, and its real-time capabilities ensure that we proactively meet our compliance goals. The installation was very quick, and the separation of audit core content and adaptable parameters allowed us to be up in production
within a short time,' said Mike Wong, senior network engineer, Verizon Business.

'The CIS benchmarks are designed to offer measurable baselines for best-practice security implementations, eliminating many of the security problems that could otherwise occur,' said Clint Kreitner, CEO of the Centre for Internet Security. 'Since compliance regulations such as SOX and HIPAA have no technology-specific guidance, the CIS benchmarks help companies align their IT operations with generalised regulations. Through its certification for Cisco Router IOS v 2.2 and Cisco PIX v 2.2 audit controls, ArcSight NCM has now provided an assured, easy-to-use set of audit controls to meet the core requirements of governmental regulations and industry mandates such as PCI.'
