PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- September 27, 2005 -- Ecora, a leader in change and configuration management software solutions supporting IT control, compliance, and security, today released the latest version of its Enterprise Auditor software suite. Enterprise Auditor v 3.6.2 now provides Oracle 10g compatibility, built-in report mapping to HIPAA security rules, and multiple ease-of-use enhancements that further reduce the time and costs of change and configuration management.

Ecora Enterprise Auditor automates the data collection and detailed reporting of thousands of configuration settings and changes across business critical operating systems (Windows, HP-UX, IBM AIX, Sun Solaris, and Red Hat Linux), applications, databases, and networking devices. A cross-platform solution, Enterprise Auditor generates timely, audit-ready reports on current system configuration settings, changes, and deviations from configuration standards.

The new features and functionality of Enterprise Auditor v 3.6.2 include:

  • Oracle 10g Compatibility: The updated Oracle module is compatible with Oracle 10g servers to collect configuration information and generate hundreds of built-in reports.

  • HIPAA Security Reports: A new "164 Subpart C" folder has been added to the built-in HIPAA Report Pack. The folder contains built-in reports that map directly to the applicable implementation specifications of the HIPAA security rule.

  • Ease-of-use enhancements: (1) New "Scheduled Task" tab in the UI consolidates all scheduling capabilities (collecting, reporting, archiving, patch updates, etc.). (2) Ability to filter Event Log entries by specific event codes to shorten collection times and reduce storage requirements. (3) New Systems Management interface allows users to access and modify previously discovered systems and modify systems and custom attributes in just three mouse clicks. (4) Improved custom file and registry reporting provides a complete graphical UI for specifying the information to collect.
