Proactive Compliance

100% trusted compliance & risk management, no matter what you discover and change in your environment

Are you compliant right now?

How about now? Your complex environment changes from minute to minute, so you only know if you were compliant at any point in time by looking back. To achieve true compliance and secure your infrastructure, you need to be compliant all the time. You need proactive compliance.

What is Proactive Compliance?

Continuous compliance has been a buzzword for years, but achieving it with traditional technologies is a heavy burden. Proactive compliance eliminates or reduces that load by enabling you to continuously review your business processes and map them to desired levels of performance while also gathering data that supports auditing activities.

3 Pillars of Proactive Compliance

  • Real-time analysis and alerting
  • Real-time compliance assessments
  • Automated rule review, recertification, and documentation processes

Many Environments, One Security Policy

Proactive compliance gives organizations the ability to analyze and optimize security controls continuously and automatically align them to a global security policy. Most organizations have more than 10 firewalls and one out of three have over 100, and four out of five have more than two enforcement point vendors. The resulting confusion of rules, policies, and vendors prevents organizations from knowing what’s actually on their networks and how they should control all the moving parts. Proactive compliance tames the tangle of technology, so even the most complex environments can maintain compliance.

No More Blind Spots

Blind spots in hybrid environments give hackers a place to hide while they search for assets to steal or unguarded entry points into partners’ networks. Proactive compliance eliminates those dark spots by providing comprehensive visibility, the ability to monitor security controls and changes, and the ability to monitor cloud traffic for suspicious and non-compliant behaviors.

One Control to Rule Them All

When regulations change, the amount of work required to update dozens or hundreds of relevant policies is staggering. Trying to make those updates takes months, and the updates are often inconsistent with each other or with the new regulation. With proactive compliance, just one policy has to be changed: the global security policy. You save time and your changes are always consistent.

Fast Fixes without the Risk of New Errors

To correct non-compliance issues, security teams pass vast amounts back and forth, often in spreadsheets. These manual processes take a lot of time, during which the organization is out of compliance, and new mistakes tend to be introduced, which reduces new compliance problems. Proactive compliance automates health check processes, so human error and effort are removed from the equation.

Never Be a Victim of a Vendor’s Weak Controls

Your organization is connected to multiple tiers of partners. They fill out security checklists and submit to physical inspections, but their environments are just as dynamic as yours, and what is compliant on Tuesday may be non-compliant on Wednesday. Proactive compliance keeps an eye on vendors and supply chains that connect to your infrastructure, so you don’t bear the burden of someone else’s misconfigured firewall or outdated policy.

Agile Compliance for Agile DevOps

Every business is a software business now, but compliance is rarely part of the development cycle – and it needs to be. Otherwise, delays stack up at the end of the cycle when testing reveals security issues, and the return on investment is eaten away while features are re-coded or removed. Proactive compliance can be integrated in the development cycle from the start, so apps can be released on time and in compliance.

Match Your Innovation to Your Appetite for Risk

Compliance is a business decision. Sometimes, changes that will yield greater returns on investments and greater shareholder value outweigh the potential risks of fines and penalties. With proactive compliance, decision-makers have the information necessary to understand whether the risk is worth the reward, or if the risk can be avoided entirely.

Your Policies Scale with You

Organizations grow and shrink their infrastructures all the time, but keeping up with the changes can feel like a treadmill to security teams who struggle to apply policies to dynamic environments. Proactive compliance eliminates those worries by enabling “management by exception,” where policies that match a set of criteria are automatically implemented, and only the few policies that don’t match are subject to human intervention.
