Cimcor releases update with Trusted File Registry™
Organizations automatically classifying changes to IT infrastructure now have SmartFIM™ technology
August 3, 2017: Cimcor’s newest update to its file integrity monitoring and compliance software, CimTrak Integrity Suite Version 3.2, introduces the Trusted File Registry™, a massive cloud-based database of digital signatures for all OS and patch files from select vendors. The focus of CimTrak’s new version helps organizations easily detect and document all changes within their IT infrastructure while leveraging the power of the Trusted File Registry™ to filter out “legitimate” changes, which was previously a manual process.
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 check issues manually. This type of industry first helped Cimcor rank once again in Cybersecurity Ventures “Top 100 Hot Security Companies to Watch” for 2017 at #75.
“Sifting through logs, and spending time to determine the validity of changes to an IT structure is cumbersome to security engineers,” said Robert E. Johnson III, president/CEO of Cimcor, Inc. Helping organizations align with the requirements of compliance and regulatory initiatives is the reason CimTrak was 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.
“Our goal was to give security professionals more time to focus on critical circumstances, eliminating the time spent reviewing false-positives,” said Johnson. 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
Said Johnson, “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.”
