Intelliden has launched Intelliden iAudit, a free, cloud-based application for validating the compliance of network devices against configuration policies. Intelliden iAudit provides an easy and quick way to validate a device’s configuration against vendor guidelines for ACL, interface and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) authentication, and industry best practices such as those recommended by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

Network and IT managers can confidentially submit device configurations for compliance validation with no requirement to download or install software. Intelliden iAudit performs several policy checks and produces summary and detailed reports to highlight successes and failures. Intelliden iAudit can be used to validate the integrity of existing solutions and to augment manual or script-based network compliance checks. The Intelliden iAudit application is currently available for Cisco IOS-based and Juniper JUNOS-based routers, and offered free of charge.

Intelliden iAudit leverages the company’s Policy Based Compliance Management (PBCM) application. The on-premise version of Intelliden PBCM automates the complete network compliance lifecycle including policy definition, validation, resolution, and reporting.

"We created Intelliden iAudit to highlight the importance of regular and on-going validation of network device configurations against regulatory mandates, security policies, and internal operational and engineering standards," said Nick Abbott, Vice President of Services and Support at Intelliden. "Incorrectly configured networks can result in outages, performance degradation, security vulnerabilities and breaches of regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI/DSS and HIPAA."
