How to survive a Security Audit of your MS infrastructure


The security and governance requirements for enterprise IT are constantly increasing. New security threats are discovered frequently, and there is additional pressure on IT management to increase legislative and governance compliance. To measure the compliance of IT, organizations periodically run internal or external IT audits. Staying ahead of the requirements and passing these audits takes significant time and causes a lot of stress for IT decision makers. Inobits Consulting and NetIQ want to show you some of the technology and process solutions that we can offer to improve the security and governance compliance for private and public sector organizations. Let us show you how you can improve your IT to pass those audits with less blood sweat or tears.

  • Managing Active Directory just got easier. Grant “just enough” authority to reduce risks.

  • Powerful group policies. Simplified. Harness the power of group policy without the risk of administration errors.
    NetIQ has a centralized management tool that allows you to edit, test, review and compare GPO changes before implementing them in your live environment. This helps you safely implement and alter Microsoft Group Policy Objects (GPOs) in your Active Directory environment.

NetIQ gives you the security intelligence you need to rapidly identify and respond to privileged user activities that could signal a data breach or result in compliance gaps.
