Symantec says it will ship next month an update to its BindView Policy Manager, the first major update since it acquired BindView earlier this year.
BindView Policy Manager 3.0 is designed to reduce redundancy by assessing compliance across regulations using a single set of universal audit controls. One antivirus policy, for instance, can help meet malicious software prevention control objectives within multiple compliance acts and regulations.
Policy Manager 3.0 assists customers with policy creation, policy mapping and proof of compliance. It also automates management of the policy lifecycle. And it closely integrates with Symantec Compliance Manager 3.0, which delivers automation to help businesses implement, measure and maintain compliance with security configuration standards.
Symantec announced in October that it would buy out BindView, a deal that closed in early January, for an estimated $209 million.
