Vigilar Updates Atlas Security-as-a-Service Solution
Adds risk management, network monitoring, asset tracking capabilities
Vigilar’s version 2.0 of ATLAS Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for holistically managing security includes new functionality for risk management, network monitoring, and asset tracking. The update also includes enhanced compliance audit support and ticketing as well as full device management functionality.
Securing IT assets demands significant expertise, infrastructure investment, and oversight just to keep systems updated and effective, but such system management is consuming a greater portion of IT’s time and resources. To address this trend, ATLAS’ new areas of functionality include:
Identification of infrastructure assets, security issues, and network changes
New change-monitoring and -management, such as state and traffic monitoring
Network vulnerability detection, including passive and active scanning, risk analysis, and intrusion detection capabilities
Improved asset and license management, including limited licensing and subscription tracking of assets
Filtering of Web content and spam
Management of firewalls and bandwidth
Full management of security devices such as firewalls, IDS, and IPS devices
ATLAS is delivered as five managed service modules, eliminating the expense of purchasing and managing hardware and software that accompanies traditional on-premises solutions. The five modules, available separately or together, are:
Asset Identification, Prioritization and Management
Systems Maintenance, Monitoring, and Management
