OVERLAND PARK, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- LockPath, the leading provider of governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced the integration between its software, Keylight, the UCFinterchange (UCFi) and technology partner NetIQ. The integration ties together Secure Configuration Management (SCM), Configuration Auditing (CA) and LockPath's Keylight Platform to automate the IT audit data collection and continuous monitoring processes.
Built on the patented, award-winning Unified Compliance Framework, the UCFi marries the technical controls of NetIQ (such as machine configuration settings) to LockPath's audit mechanisms, allowing for complete automation of continuous monitoring and audit data collection.
"With the integration of these best-in-class solutions, we can now offer our customers an innovative, automated approach to IT auditing and continuous monitoring," says Chris Caldwell, CEO of LockPath. "The UCFi format will enable our customers to form deeper and more meaningful relationships within the GRC ecosystem and empower their audit and compliance programs."
The UCFinterchange facilitates communication between SCM, CA, and GRC tools. IT specialists can now automatically perform business-wide configuration audits and map the results to corresponding policies and regulations. Compliance officers are then able to generate powerful, in-depth reports on these findings and route identified risks through the remediation process. This standardized and automated approach streamlines customer audit and IT security efforts, creates efficiencies within compliance programs, and enables users to make better and faster business decisions.
"We built an intelligent interchange platform to outpace the newest and still-emerging security and GRC guidelines," says Craig Isaacs, CEO of Unified Compliance Framework. "All indications point to full integration across GRC, SCM and CA tools will soon become a mandate and we are thrilled to have LockPath and NetIQ spearhead this initiative."
Keylight is the first fully-integrated GRC solution to meet the needs of both compliance officials and IT experts. Through their partnerships with the UCF and NetIQ, LockPath customers can leverage best-practice framework controls, gain valuable insights into configuration deficiencies and network vulnerabilities, and prioritize risks.
Attendees at this week's RSA Conference can see a demonstration of Keylight's UCFi integration at LockPath's booth (#238). More information on Keylight is available at www.lockpath.com/products.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
