San Antonio, Texas-based Trusted Computer Solutions will release a group of security management features next week at LinuxWorld Conference & Expo that will perform pre-packaged assessments and configuration procedures so that IT managers won’t have to do so manually.
Called “lockdown profiles,” these features enable IT managers to quickly assess systems for security and compliance with four distinct sets of security standards: PCI DSS (credit card security standards), JAFAN (Joint Air Force Army Navy), DCID (Director of Central Intelligence Directive) 6/3, and CIP (Critical Infrastructure Protection). The four profiles are an addition to the company’s product Security Blanket Enterprise Edition.
They are also the most recent in a series of releases from TCS in the past year. The LinuxWorld release of Security Blanket Enterprise Edition will also be able to take snapshots of system security configuration and then provide those snapshots for simplified comparison to previous configurations.
