Titania’s TEC shows that compliance auditing doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s very easy to use and capable of providing a vast amount of easily understood audit information that’ll ensure you stay on the right side of the laws governing data protection.
TEC seamlessly integrates the technologies employed by Nipper and PAWS, allowing it to audit any network device. It supports a wide range of firewalls, switches and routers from all the major players, including Cisco, Brocade, Check Point, Fortinet, HP, Juniper and WatchGuard.
All Windows servers, workstations and laptops can be audited on-demand and to regular schedules, which can be often as every hour. In all cases, TEC produces an impressive range of professional compliance reports that can be easily searched and exported. Deployment is swift and we had had the TEC VM template running on our VMware host in under 10 minutes. On first contact with its web console, we secured administrative access, added email addresses for alerting and configured the IP address of the TEC web server.
The web console’s dashboard shows the status of all audit jobs, plus a compliance summary. The network monitoring pane to the right can be configured to show graphs and pie-charts for the various audits and compliance tests.
Network devices can have security audits run on them, along with configuration and vulnerability checks, while Windows systems are subjected to NSA, NERC and OVAL compliance and vulnerability checks. For Windows systems, a low footprint Data Collector agent is pushed to each one, which passes the relevant audit information back to the TEC server and then unloads itself.
