Security management at Interoute enhanced by Configuresoft

Configuresoft : 22 July, 2008  (Application Story)
Server configuration management provides European network operator with superior security compliance
Interoute, owner of Europe's most advanced voice and data network, has selected Configuresoft's Enterprise Configuration Manager (ECM) to support its internationally recognised ISO 27001 accredited security management system and ensure compliance with internal policy.

Interoute operates a sophisticated portfolio of IT, Business Support Systems (BSS) and Network Management Systems (NMS) required to deliver and maintain next generation data solutions. Interoute selected ECM's server configuration management solution for its scalability, performance and ability to ensure the security and compliance critical to Interoute's customers.

'Interoute delivers and maintains network solutions for a wide range of world leading companies and security is a critical element of that offering,' said Joe Stevens, Interoute's Director of Operations Security. 'Data security and compliance are a critical priority for data driven businesses and being able to offer flexible and adaptable controls to meet our customers security requirements is of utmost importance.'

Configuresoft's ECM solution allows Interoute to continuously measure and configure security policy across Windows, Unix and Linux platforms. Additionally, ECM ensures security and compliance for the business-critical applications required to run Interoute's next generation network.

'Interoute chose ECM for its ability to maintain our rigid security management requirements,' said Stevens. 'ECM strengthens our internal security controls and processes so we can continually meet the network security requirements of our customers. It strengthens the technical controls of our ISO 27001 management system and makes maintaining compliance easy.'

Configuresoft's Centre for Policy & Compliance (CP&C) develops toolkits and detailed technical controls to speed compliance for a variety of regulatory and operational standards including ISO 27001, NIST, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI-DSS as well as vendor hardening guidelines such as the Microsoft Hardening Guides and VMware ESX Hardening Guides. CP&C toolkits greatly accelerated the deployment and adoption of a continuous compliance solution.

'For Interoute, security and compliance are operational imperatives that require a continuous, automated process,' said Andrew Bird, vice president for Configuresoft. 'Their customers demand the highest levels of security at all times. ECM's ability to deliver 'Clean IT' for continuous security and compliance ensures Interoute's data protection is on par with Interoute's exceptional next generation network.'
