Automatically identifying valid changes to files on servers is focus of new CimTrak 3.2 release
Cimcor releases update with SmartFIM™ technology; Those monitoring for PCI DSS, HIPAA, NERC, to save time with automatic process
Chicago, Ill. March 2, 2017. Cimcor, Inc. has released a major update to its file integrity monitoring and compliance software, CimTrak Integrity Suite Version 3.2. This new version introduces the Trusted File Registry™, which is a massive cloud-based database of digital signatures for all OS and patch files from select vendors. The focus of this new version not only helps organizations easily detect and document all changes within their IT infrastructure but can also leverage the power of the Trusted File Registry™ to filter out “legitimate” changes, which was previously a manual process.
Helping organizations align with the requirements of compliance and regulatory initiatives is the reason CimTrak has been listed as one of CIO Review’s “Top 20 Most Promising Security Solutions” and why Cimcor is included in Cybersecurity Ventures “Top 100 Hot Security Companies to Watch” for 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Continuing with a groundbreaking pace, the Trusted File Registry™, blended with CimTrak’s integrated ticketing system, represents another industry first of eliminating false-positives by automatically recognizing vendor-verified patches or updated files, reducing the time needed to manually check these issues.
“Security engineers spend a tremendous amount of time, sifting through logs, and other resources, in order to determine if a change to their IT infrastructure is valid or not”, said Robert E. Johnson III, president/CEO of Cimcor, Inc. “Our goal, when creating this new version, was to eliminate the time spent filtering out false-positives, so security professionals can direct the time and focus to situations truly needing attention. This update tightly integrates with existing operational workflows, differentiating good change from bad throughout servers, active directory settings, firewalls and routers, and most major components within the IT infrastructure.”
The latest upgrade to the CimTrak Integrity Suite achieves those objectives with SmartFIM™ technology and includes the following key features:
- Drastically reduces administration time
- Ensures accurate system baseline
- Eliminates alerts on known good patch/update files
- Operates with minimal IT personnel intervention
