Intelliden Launches Industry’s Most Advanced Network Compliance Management Application Tuesday 17 July 2007 PDF Print MENLO PARK, CA — July 17, 2007 — Intelliden Inc., a leading provider of Intelligent Networking solutions that enable organizations to control, manage and scale their networks, today announced the release of its new Policy Based Compliance Management application. This advanced application has been designed to meet the compliance needs of ‘network-driven’ organizations, who demand the highest possible levels of network availability, reliability, integrity and security. It is industry’s first application to support such organizations’ total network compliance needs, including regulatory, industry, security and operational requirements. It is also the only application that combines automated compliance, intelligent remediation, unmatched usability, and support for an unlimited number of policies to meet the needs of the largest and most complex networks. Based on the patented Intelliden R-Series® platform, the new Policy Based Compliance Management application lowers the cost of network compliance and audits, accelerates discovery and resolution of configuration-related vulnerabilities, and ensures highest degree of network availability and business continuity. Traditional network compliance solutions have largely focused on the domains of regulatory and security compliance. This narrow focus ignores the holistic need for total network compliance, which should also consider the broader business risks and requirements as they relate to networks. For network-driven enterprises, such as communications service providers, financial institutions and defense and security organizations, network compliance must support all business requirements as they pertain to networks, including regulatory, industry, security and operational requirements. As announced earlier this year, TELUS will be one of the first communications service providers to deploy Intelliden Policy Based Compliance Management to automatically detect and correct out-of-compliance network conditions, giving it a new level of control and predictability in their networks. “Our customers demand solutions that can scale to meet the requirements of their complex and dynamic network environments,” said Alan Black, President and CEO of Intelliden. “The Intelliden Policy Based Compliance Management application will uniquely enable our customers to manage their comprehensive network compliance needs and provide intelligent remediation by translating network policies into actionable resolutions. This will further help them to deliver highest quality of service to their customers, fulfill their regulatory compliance needs, maximize network security, and improve operational efficiency.” The Policy Based Compliance Management application from Intelliden enables companies to balance business risk management with stringent service availability requirements. Based on industry best practices, the Intelliden solution incorporates the requirements of the entire compliance lifecycle, including implementation, validation, detection and closed-loop resolution of compliance violations as well as essential “audit-ready” monitoring and reporting capabilities. This comprehensive solution replaces inefficient, multiple, disjointed manual or scripted processes with an integrated, intelligent and automated solution to support comprehensive network compliance needs. Intelliden Policy Based Compliance Management application delivers several unique benefits to network-driven organizations, including the ability to do the following: • Provides a unified solution for managing total network compliance needs • Facilitates collaboration between business and the network groups to ensure corporate mandates and service level agreements are correctly translated and implemented as network level policies • Improves operational efficiency by eliminating costly time-consuming and error prone manual processes • Improves network security by speeding up the discovery, remediation, and resolution of configuration-related vulnerabilities • Mitigates the risk of non-compliance via continuous monitoring and enforcement “The success of its solutions in this domain indicates the degree to which Intelliden recognizes the unique challenges of demanding network environments, and has been proven in some of the world’s most complex networks,” said Scott Crawford, Senior Analyst for Enterprise Management Associates. “The Intelliden Policy Based Compliance Management application will help to provide a significant advancement in how large, dynamic and complex mission-critical networks are controlled, managed and scaled.” Serving as a foundation for the Policy Based Compliance Management application, the Intelliden R-Series® platform continuously maintains the real-time state of the network. It serves as an abstraction layer for the underlying network by translating the device configuration information—irrespective of vendor, type, model and operating system (VTMOS)—into standardized device models. The Policy Based Compliance Management application provides a central repository for an unlimited number and combination of network compliance policies from a few hundred to tens of thousands of devices. The solution incorporates a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface, and enables business and technical users to define sophisticated compliance policies. The Intelliden Policy Engine ensures continuous and accurate monitoring of operational policies. When network compliance violations are detected, the Intelliden solution “closes the loop” on compliance enforcement with a comprehensive set of options for resolving out-of-compliance conditions on network devices. It also provides a number of reports for executives, compliance departments, security teams, business units as well as network engineering and operations. Reporting data can be exported to external governance, risk and compliance (GRC), and business intelligence applications, which enables timely access to critical network compliance information to broader organization.
