Computer Security Evaluator SekChek Announces Brand New Product for On-Site Security Assessments

17 Mar, 2008, 01:00 ET from SekChek(R) Information Protection Services

    CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- SekChek(R) Information
 Protection Services (IPS) today announced the release of SekChek_Local(TM),
 a brand-new version of its automated computer security assessment tool,
 which now offers on-site security analysis and reporting.
 
     "This new tool provides a long awaited alternative to our 10-year
 established 'Classic' version of SekChek, which currently produces reports
 in MS Word assessing overall security against a benchmark of industry
 averages," says Andrew Chodelski, Vice President of Global Marketing for
 SekChek. "The new SekChek_Local(TM) tool allows Clients to scan and analyze
 security controls without having to send data off-site for processing.
 
     "Initially, our new product will cater for Microsoft Windows' servers
 and Microsoft Active Directory. We plan to release an updated version,
 which analyzes database security in Microsoft SQL servers, by April 2008."
 
     The new 'Local' version runs on a workstation and requests (scans)
 security related information from one or more specified Hosts over the
 network. It then allows you to process the Scan files and view the results
 locally instead of having to send data to SekChek for analysis. Processing
 of Scan files is activated via email through a subscription Token mechanism
 which is fully automated.
 
     Besides permitting on-site analysis of Host security, SekChek_Local(TM)
 allows clients to review security on multiple servers at a time, enabling
 efficient comparison of security implementations.
 
     SekChek operates by safely scanning a host system's control settings
 and providing a complete -- not sample-based -- review of security
 controls. These assessments offer confirmation of effective security
 configurations, and confidence that control implementations are in line
 with policy and leading IT security practices.
