Customers Can Now Integrate Compliance Monitoring Into Their Evolving DevOps Process
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – July 20, 2016 – Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC), the global leader in cybersecurity, today announced the next version of Symantec Control Compliance Suite, the enterprise-class IT governance, risk and compliance solution. Symantec Control Compliance Suite delivers new features to give IT and Security Operations teams the ability to implement agile business processes while remaining in compliance with regulations. As more and more companies adopt agile practices to keep up with the fast pace of innovation and change, agile compliance is a critical part of the development process.
Symantec Control Compliance Suite (CCS) is a compliance and security assessment solution that provides users with the ability to run security and compliance assessments on their environment (public, private, and physical) across servers, endpoints, and critical network infrastructure. Using Symantec CCS, organizations can report on their compliance posture against industry best practices and key mandates like Payment Card Industry, International Organization for Standardization, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and many others.
“The latest version of Symantec CCS enables enterprises all over the world to change the game from compliance as a cost to compliance as a differentiator and an enabler to an Agile Enterprise,” said Vishal Gupta, VP of Management and Compliance, Symantec. “Innovative capabilities like scripting and Command Line Interface automation will enable our customers and partners to open and extend the CCS platform both for their security and operational needs.”
With the new Symantec Control Compliance Suite, companies can adopt agile compliance methodologies into their day to day operations to increase confidence in their provisioning and remediation process. Key new capabilities include:

Symantec industry partners share the benefits of CCS:
“With the introduction of custom scripting in Symantec CCS, customers that have already invested in the personnel and process to create and maintain a robust script library for data collection can now leverage that investment directly in CCS. Conversely, customers who do not have the in-house expertise to develop and maintain data collection scripts or are still using manual processes for data collection can still utilize the built-in technical check builder that has always been a core feature of the CCS Suite. Realistically, most companies will probably choose a hybrid strategy using both scripts and CCS built technical checks to varying degrees, but the key is that Symantec has now given the customer the choice of how they want to collect their configuration and compliance data.”

“We are excited about this significant step forward in the Symantec Control Compliance Suite, which is poised to allow both partners and customers to deliver more value, better service and a greater level of customization. At Novacoast, we are eager for this release and believe it will provide a better, more cohesive experience for CCS users.”
