Supporting Compliance: A Network Approach
Source: Enterasys Networks
With the significant increase in compliance related mandates put upon IT organizations today, Enterasys has written this white paper to explain the approach to supporting compliance through advanced policy-driven networking. Regulatory compliance and governance mandates are new and daunting issues for any IT organization. These requirements for compliance can come from outside the organization in the form of government legislation, such as HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley. They can also come from the inside of the organization in the form of organizational governance edicts from executive management. In either case, the network infrastructure must play a role in supporting the often abstract requirements of compliance, while at the same time ensuring that the business objectives of the organization are still being met.
