Nothing may have changed the way people manage IT assets more than today's security challenges, industry and legislative requirements, and auditing activities. IT managers must be concerned with both external risks from "Outside the firewall," as well as ones from inside the organization. Failure to mitigate these threats can lead to loss of intellectual property, system downtime, frustrated end users, fines, and a tarnished public image. However, compliance auditing can be a tedious and time-consuming process that is highly manual, inconsistent, and fraught with risk. This paper explains the challenges of achieving security and compliance, and describes how Quest solutions have the capabilities to overcome them.
