New Software Features Regulatory Compliance for Virtualization Environments and Is First to Implement Full Support for Major Compliance Regulations
Paramus, New Jersey, December 9, 2008 - Netwrix Corporation, a provider of systems management and compliance solutions for Active Directory and virtualization environments, today announced Version 2.0 of its Change Reporter for VMware Infrastructure 3. Version 2.0 features regulatory compliance as well as complete support for major compliance regulations in the industry, including SOX, HIPAA, GLBA and FISMA. This expanded capacity marks the first time that any software in its class has been able to attain such a threshold in regulatory compliance standards for VMware environments, which further solidifies Netwrix's expanding role in the surging systems management and compliance arena.
Change Reporter for VMware Infrastructure 3 audits all changes and archives them for future analysis to deliver a comprehensive solution for the VMware Infrastructure. This ability to archive information -- for years -- that details "Who" made changes, "What" changes were made and "Where" they were made is significant for internal IT governance as well as IT compliance auditors. Change Reporter for VMware 2.0 provides IT departments with a toolset for creating full-blown reports that effectively investigate and unlock all activities within VMware environments that can then be transferred to legal departments as well as law enforcement agencies via PDF format or hard copy.
"The ability to track, manage and monitor changes in virtualized environments and then be able to develop comprehensive reports based on those changes is a significant step forward to improve overall security in organizations that rely on VMware Infrastructure," said Netwrix President and CEO Michael Fimin. "This new version of Change Reporter for VMware is an effective solution that works to address all key issues and concerns that have the biggest impact on IT departments today, particularly in the areas surrounding security and compliance."
In today's high-tech climate, change auditing is an essential management element that IT professionals must have in place to most effectively monitor virtual environments and limit unauthorized changes and errors. Erroneous and unauthorized changes usually occur every day in organizations where many IT professionals manage different aspects of virtual infrastructure. Such changes can cause failures and outages in a virtual infrastructure and significantly contribute to virtual machine sprawl. Netwrix develops software solutions that address such concerns. With Version 2.0 of the Change Reporter product, Netwrix provides its customers a unique tool for ensuring that all changes made across the board are completely secure and in step with today's compliance regulations standards. Supported VMware products: VMware Infrastructure 3, VMware Virtual Center, VMware ESX and ESXi Servers.
