Netwrix Helps the California Highway Patrol (CHP) "Protect and Serve" Its IT Infrastructure

One of the Largest Police Forces in the U.S. Relies on Netwrix Auditor to Deliver Centralized, Affordable IT Change Auditing

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Netwrix Corporation, the #1 provider of change and configuration auditing software, today announced that the California Highway Patrol (CHP) has streamlined its compliance with state and federal regulations by using Netwrix Auditor.

With an employee count of over 11,000 and over 100 patrol office locations, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is one of the largest law enforcement forces today. Like many large organizations, the CHP's IT department is comprised of multiple administrators tasked with managing numerous systems. Changes to these systems are made by administrators every day and tracking those changes for compliance and system performance reasons can be a complex challenge.

To solve its change management issues, the CHP IT team was using a solution that charged them on a per-component basis with little or no noticeable return. With a growing number of systems that required auditing, the CHP began to seek a new solution that would efficiently manage their system changes for a single-solution price.

"We needed to know what changes were being made within our IT infrastructure, as well as have an ability to roll back unwanted changes," said Homer Black, Technical Services Group Supervisor, CHP. "Because we needed to have visibility into changes on a wide range of systems, we proactively sought out a cost-effective and powerful solution to replace our existing solution we had in house."

They found their answer with Netwrix Auditor. "The number of systems supported and features within Netwrix Auditor were impressive," said Homer Black, Technical Services Group Supervisor, CHP. "Factoring in the reasonable pricing, selecting Netwrix Auditor was a no-brainer for us."

Since deploying Netwrix Auditor, CHP's IT department is able to meet their auditing requirements by automatically tracking modifications made to their Active Directory, Exchange Servers, Windows Servers, SQL Servers and File Servers. CHP is also now able to take action quickly to revert any changes that cause problems, saving countless hours and management headaches.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
