ISO/IEC 27001 provides guidance for implementing information security controls to achieve a consistent and reliable security program. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) developed 27001 to provide a worldwide standard for information security.
Achieving 27001 compliance can be challenging for many organizations because of its broad scope, especially for organizations with limited resources. To accelerate ISO information security compliance, you need to simplify, consolidate, and automate essential security controls to unify policy monitoring, threat detection, and remediation prioritization.
AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) delivers the essential security controls you need for ISO 27001 security compliance:
Automated Asset Discovery & Vulnerability Assessment
Continuous Security Monitoring
Powerful Reporting & Dashboard
A fundamental component of ISO 27001 compliance is creating and maintaining a comprehensive asset inventory. USM’s built-in asset discovery capability combines essential discovery and inventory technologies to give you full visibility into the devices that are on your network:
Once USM has created your asset inventory, its built-in vulnerability assessment alerts you to vulnerabilities on those systems. You can then use the prioritized list of vulnerabilities to remediate critical vulnerabilities before an attacker can exploit them.
In addition, USM’s integrated vulnerability tells you when your assets are vulnerable to the exploits it detects with its IDS capabilities.
ISO 27001 compliance requires the aggregation of event data from multiple systems into a single view. AlienVault USM delivers the visibility you need in a single platform – saving you the time and expense of manually aggregating this data.
The USM platform utilizes the built-in essential security controls to generate the data that enables you to detect policy violations quickly and reduce time to compliance.
This unified approach allows you to quickly answer the critical questions that are required for ISO 27001 compliance:
Flexible Reporting & Dashboard
ISO 27001 compliance requires on-going policy enforcement. The built-in security controls, combined with USM’s powerful reporting engine, help you develop and monitor your policies from a single console.
The USM platform provides report templates for ISO 27001 as well as the ability to customize those templates, ensuring that you can generate the reports you need. There are also compliance reports for other regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA, NERC CIP, GPG13 and other programs.
