Quest Enhances Compliance Suite for Windows

Published: February 22, 2006

by Alex Woodie

Quest Software last week unveiled several new solutions that are part of its Compliance Suite for Windows, including Quest Compliance Portal, a protected Web portal where users can remotely access compliance-related information, and Quest InTrust 9.0, a new release of its heterogeneous auditing product.

Quest Compliance Portal presents data gathered by other members of the Compliance Suite for Windows into reports that are viewable in real time over the Web. The company has included regulation-specific report packs that show how the user stands up against the most important new regulations of the day, including COBIT, FISMA, HIPAA, ITIL, Basel II, and everybody's favorite, good old Sarbanes-Oxley.

The Southern California company also bolstered its InTrust auditing environment with several new capabilities to ensure the integrity of data, including new backup processes to ensure that event log data captured by InTrust agents are secured in a tamper-proof manner, and can't be altered by rogue users or administrators. Similarly, the new automated server failover capability ensures that InTrust log data is maintained during a hardware failure. In addition to collecting, storing, reporting, and generating alerts for events on Windows systems, InTrust also supports Linux and Unix systems, SQL-based databases, and firewalls.

Quest's Compliance Suite for Windows, which starts at $25 per named user, includes InTrust, InTrust for Active Directory, Reporter, and the Compliance Portal components.
