Lumension Integrates With Network Frontiers' Unified Compliance Framework To Simplify Compliance Challenges, Reduce Costs, And Harmonize Controls
Date:6/29/2009

Integration with Network Frontiers' UCF Comprehensive Compliance Database will Allow Organizations to Gain Greater Risk Visibility, Simplify and Centralize Compliance Efforts while Trimming Costs

Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) June 29, 2009 -- Lumension®, the global leader in operational endpoint security, has partnered with Network Frontiers, a leader in IT compliance, to deliver the world's most comprehensive global compliance database for Lumension's customers.

Network Frontiers' Unified Compliance Framework helps enterprises simplify and centralize compliance efforts by providing a single framework to establish a common set of methods, procedures, and controls across industry mandates, standards, requirements, and guidelines.

The UCF rationalizes IT controls for more than 400 international regulatory requirements, standards and guidelines into a single set of straightforward requirements that clearly map the many points where global, state and industry regulations overlap. This enables organizations to easily define commonalities among regulatory bodies; to leverage policies, processes and tools already in place; and to establish a streamlined, cost-effective plan to achieve continuous compliance across the enterprise.

The integration of Network Frontiers' UCF and Lumension® Risk Manager (shipping in the second half of 2009), enables enterprises to manage compliance requirements more effectively by utilizing controls and standards that have been clearly defined and eliminate redundancy.

Through Lumension® Risk Manager, customers will have direct access to the UCF's comprehensive compliance database, allowing organizations to:

 
  • Create a single point of reference for hundreds of complex regulations, requirements and guidelines
  • Assert compliance across multiple authority documents simultaneously
  • Eliminate redundancies by eliminating overlapping requirements and documents
  • Drill down for comprehensive explanations and sources for each common control
"Key to simplifying compliance management and reducing costs is leveraging the appropriate tools and technologies," said Brandon Dunlap, Managing Director of Research at Brightfly. "The Unified Compliance Framework allows security professionals to easily address hundreds of regulations by harmonizing a set of controls against which all regulatory standards and best practices are mapped. By adopting the UCF, compliance related technology vendors are providing a real value-add to their customers: to implement a single set of controls and comply with many different industry regulations and standards while reducing significant costs related to compliance with mandates such as PCI-DSS (Payment Card), Sarbanes Oxley, CobiT, NIST and many others."

Director of Solution Marketing at Lumension Jeff Hughes commented: "As regulations and technology practices have mounted over the years, organizations continue to struggle to keep ahead of the latest requirements. Adding to the compliance chaos is the onslaught of new mandates that are introducing new standards, requirements, processes, controls, and guidelines. Enterprises need a way to link security activities with compliance mandates in order to fill gaps and provide visibility for auditors. Through the UCF, our customers can achieve a more cost effective, streamlined plan, reduce complexity and cut costs of compliance and audit by rationalizing their IT controls through a single framework for a cohesive look into the organization's compliance and risk posture."

"Further, the UCF allows our customers to enhance their compliance and risk management efforts to manage critical risk and comply with multiple industry and global regulations under a single umbrella. I believe it's a great way to provide value-add for our customers by further simplifying regulatory mandates and bringing sanity to the world of compliance chaos."

The UCF includes controls from a variety of regulations and guidelines, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Basel Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), NASD Manual, HIPAA, FERC Security Program, Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, IRS Revenue Procedure and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

"The only way to take full advantage of the UCF is to leverage our common controls in a solution which incorporates the UCF," said Craig Isaacs, CEO of Network Frontiers. "Lumension Risk Manager leverages the UCF to ensure enterprises can get a broad and deep view of their security and regulatory profile, automatically identify key concerns, and remediate risk effectively and efficiently within the context of standardized compliance regulations and controls."
