Configuration Management - Intelligent Change Control
Change Control is not the same as Change Management. While Change Management focuses on the justification and planning of changes, Change Control majors on the verification of actual changes made.
No wonder it’s a security best practice referenced throughout the CIS Controls.
It’s vital to control change because your ‘Attack Surface’ is directly governed by changes made, chiefly to installed software and configuration settings. And from a security standpoint, change control is the only way to distinguish between legitimate IT activity, and a stealthy cyber-attack. This is why, according to the Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, 68% of breaches take months to discover.
No more guesswork
Identify exactly what changed, where, when and by whom. Changes are automatically reconciled with Planned Change details so you even know the 'why'.
Every single change evaluated automatically, every suspicious change exposed
Gaining visibility of system configuration changes is the only way to operate secure change control. But full-visibility without automated analysis intelligence just leads to noise with unapproved changes left hiding in plain sight. If you don't have Closed-Loop Intelligent Change Control, you are making Configuration Management unworkable.
Streamline operations from RFC to QA Testing – close the loop with seamless automation
