What’s new in NNT Change Tracker Gen 7

Provide continuous protection against cyber-security attacks - Introducing ‘Closed-Loop Intelligent Change Control’

Revolutionary Closed-Loop Intelligent Change Control (CLICC) - Active Change Noise-Reduction

Gen 7 introduces a new ‘Intelligent’ approach to system integrity monitoring

  • No change noise = clear visibility of breach activity
  • ‘CLICC’ functionality automatically assesses changes made to IT systems against expected/permitted changes to the config baseline
  • Automatic assessment and learning of expected behavior e.g. patching updates, Gen 7 continually enhances system intelligence
  • Integrate with Threat Intelligence feeds for real-time evaluation of malware

Re-imagined and completely re-engineered Hub and UI

Completely re-engineered UI and Hub

  • New UI: mobile app-style web interface
  • Central Hub server can now be deployed on both Windows and Linux
  • Full visibility and control over device events - filters can be saved and re-used, or to define a scheduled report

Fully automated provisioning of new devices

Automated discovery process learns device type, role and location: devices are auto-assigned monitoring and reporting templates

  • Even large estates can be auto-provisoned in just a few hours
  • Get a continuously updated compliance assessment of your estate automatically

Maintain security and compliance: complete configuration change control Let Gen 7 do the work for you

Closed-Loop Intelligent Change Control provides automated, forensic analysis of all configuration changes

  • Approved changes can be added to a Planned Change - just point & click. Subsequent occurrences of the same change will be auto-approved
  • Changes that do not match a Planned Change template will be highlighted as potential security incidents
  • Removes the workload associated with the outdated process of reviewing a FIM Changes Report and promoting changes to the Baseline

Massive scalability, Enterprise- class performance capacity

New Hub architecture designed for scalability and performance

  • Re-engineered Hub has been designed to support in excess of 50,000 devices
  • Capacity can be scaled up further, using an extended event pipeline across multiple servers
  • Database can be sharded to increase resilience and performance

Report on any detail, for any event, for any devices

Change event repository is fully keyword indexed: events can be filtered and selected precisely

  • Select events by username, file hash value or any other keyword
  • build flexible reports to show any combination of attributes and details

Many Other Enhancements

  • Scheduled Report operation: any events, any devices, one-off or repeated ƒƒ
  • Comprehensive REST API provides full, two-way integration with 3rd Party change and incident management systems such as Remedy and ServiceNow ƒƒ ƒƒ
  • Agentless monitoring can be distributed using new Proxy Agent for enhanced security and flexibility ƒƒ
