NetIQ VigilEnt Policy Center 3.0 Adds Oracle and Sun ONE Support

Solution Automates Creation, Distribution and Enforcement of Corporate Security Policies Across Heterogeneous IT Environments

Press Release


Today at the 2003 RSA Conference (Booth # 1437), NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems and Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, announced the general availability of NetIQ® VigilEnt™ Policy Center 3.0, automated software designed to help chief security officers and compliance officers as well as human resources and legal personnel manage the entire security policy lifecycle – from policy creation, distribution and tracking to end-user education and compliance.

With VigilEnt Policy Center 3.0, NetIQ has added support for Oracle 9i and Sun ONE Application Server, significantly enhancing organizations’ ability to leverage their existing technology investments for security policy management efforts. VigilEnt Policy Center is the only automated solution in the industry to seamlessly integrate with existing LDAP, Microsoft Windows NT, and Active Directory user repositories so that IT departments can provide end users with VPC access without having to re-create user IDs or accounts.

“VigilEnt Policy Center 3.0’s support for Oracle and Sun ONE illustrates NetIQ’s commitment to meeting customer demand for effective cross-platform solutions,” said Kimber Spradlin, product marketing manager at NetIQ. “VigilEnt Policy Center 3.0 provides organizations with large heterogeneous environments an automated solution for educating and testing end users on corporate security policies, a must-have as strict industry-specific regulations mandate irrefutable proof of compliance.”

Many industries today confront increased government-mandated privacy and security regulations described in legislation such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act affecting the Financial Services sector, the Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability Act for the Healthcare industry and the Food and Drug Administration’s 21 CFR Part 11 regulations for those in the Life Sciences. It’s a challenge for any organization to track and prove regulatory compliance, particularly when sophisticated threats to computers and data are consuming already-strapped security resources.

VigilEnt Policy Center provides built-in knowledge to create, update, distribute and track policies. With more than 1,300 policy templates to choose from, CSOs and compliance officers can quickly develop policies that pertain to their business. Once created, policies can then be distributed to employees based on their role in the organization. From a Web-based interface, end users can review the policies that pertain only to them. This helps limit policy apathy within the organization and increases end users’ understanding of their role in the security equation.

Pricing and Availability

VigilEnt Policy Center 3.0 is available today. Pricing starts at $10,000.
