New policy management software simplifies compliance.

Intelliden : 12 March, 2008  (New Product)
Intelliden releases Policy Based Compliance Management 2.0 (PBCM 2.0), the latest version of the company's total network compliance solution.
PBCM 2.0 automatically defines and manages network policies to meet regulatory, operational and industry compliance mandates, in addition to managing and resolving configuration-related security vulnerabilities in real-time.

Designed to give network-driven companies greater network control, management and scalability, PBCM 2.0 boasts new and enhanced functionality to help lower the cost of network compliance and audits, accelerate discovery and remediation of configuration-related vulnerabilities and ensure the highest degree of network availability and business continuity. The software also combines automated compliance with intelligent remediation, unmatched usability, and support for an unlimited number of policies to meet the needs of the largest and most complex networks.

"Intelliden is working with some of the largest, most network-dependent companies in the world," said Alan Black, president and CEO of Intelliden. "These companies rely on their networks to deliver advanced communications services, automate data centres, connect multiple locations and conduct critical business transactions. With potentially hundreds of policies required to support thousands of network devices, it is virtually impossible to maintain network availability, security and reliability through antiquated manual network management processes and systems. With PBCM 2.0, network managers can automate their network compliance processes, reducing the risk from human error and faulty network configurations that lead to non-compliance and service outages."

With PBCM 2.0, organizations can use out-of-the-box network policies to realise faster time-to-deployment and lower cost of ownership. The ready-made policies offer instant compliance with a number of security (National Security Agency router guidelines), and operational mandates. Companies can also customise these policies to meet their specific requirements, without having to start from scratch. Without this ability to quickly define and modify policies, network managers would need to spend hundreds of hours to cleanse their network and bring it under control.

Traditional script-based solutions tightly couple policies with underlying network devices leading to an explosion of the number of policies necessary to manage large number of network devices. PBCM 2.0 introduces parameter management to drastically reduce the number of policies needed to manage large and complex network environments. Parameters promote reuse of network policies, and enable use of a single policy to validate similar configuration settings across multiple network devices.

A typical network with hundreds of network policies and thousands of devices could require millions of validations to guarantee network availability, security and reliability. With PBCM 2.0, for the first time companies can support more than one million configuration validations per hour. PBCM 2.0 also enforces network policies in real-time as configuration changes are made and on a continuous basis, bringing policy enforcement directly into the production environment. Finally, by providing automated remediation, PBCM 2.0 automates detection and correction of out-of-compliance network conditions.

PBCM 2.0 works in conjunction with the Intelliden R-Series platform and other Intelligent Networking applications. Incorporating Intelliden's patented technology and standards-based architecture, the Intelliden R-Series 5.0 platform offers unparalleled levels of support for the largest and most transaction-intensive network environments.
