Tripwire promises better compliance automation

Remediation Manager speeds up process

Compliance and security compantTripwire has launched a new version of its software to incorporate Remediation Manager, a feature that helps organisations automate their compliance processes.

Enterprise 8.0 supports a wide range of compliance policies, including PCI, Sarbannes-Oxley and FISMA said Rob Warmack, senior director of international marketing for Tripwire. "But it's not just about finding problems, it's getting them fixed too. It's a bit like going to your doctor, you don't just want him to find out what's wrong with you but what's he going to do to fix you."

He said that the use of Remediation Manager would drastically reduce the time administrators spent fixing compliance issues. "We've taken the mundane task off an IT adminstrator's plate," he said. "We've done a lot of automation - it's automation with a capital A. It's crossed three areas: compliance, security and operations."

He said that this was an extension of the company's VIA suite, which offered visibility, by keeping track of changes, intelligence and automation

Warmack said that it wasn't just a question of conforming to internationally recognised compliance standards. "Remediation Manager will work for any organisation that has a security policy - doesn't have to be an internationally recognised."

The product has been designed to be effective within large enterprises where keeping compliance records on thousands of servers could be arduous but Warmack said that SMEs would also benefit as many of them had only administrator to monitor compliance changes.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
