Great post! Since you asked to be made aware of vendor alerts, I thought you might want to know that OPNET offers a network configuration auditing solution that complements configuration management. The OPNET Sentinel product suite is a software-based appliance offering deep audit of network configuration to ensure security, policy compliance (PCI compliance, FISMA, NIST 800-53, Cisco SAFE, etc.), and network integrity.
If you haven’t heard of OPNET, we’re a publicly traded software company (NASDAQ: OPNT) with about $100M in annual revenue.
For more information, feel free to contact me.
