Security and Compliance Use Case
Reduce the cost of compliance efforts while enhancing the security and protection of business assets
Securing the IT environment through internal regulations and policies, or demonstrating compliance to regulatory standards such as HIPAA, SOX, and PCI, have become major challenges for IT professionals in the social enterprise. For example, demonstrating compliance with policies and regulations is a necessity for IT operations, especially when periodic audits are conducted. The audit process alone can consume considerable time and effort collecting key information from diverse sources and individuals. Enforcing policies and satisfying audits are constant issues for IT operations already stressed with trying to accomplish more with limited resources.

- Effectively and efficiently link appropriate policies applicable to your business systems
- Ensure that compliance is factored into the risk assessments of proposed changes
- Reduce the time and effort spent to generate reports for auditors that demonstrate the appropriate technical controls required to enforce policies throughout the organization
- Reduce the cost of compliance efforts while simultaneously enhancing the security and protection of business assets
