According to Forrester Research, configuration auditing will be the No. 1 security technology within the next three to five years. It is believed that since there is an increasing number of data and security breaches, configuration auditing systems will have a much greater exposure and presence in this projected time frame.
The research firm stated that these systems “have the potential to become ubiquitous in enterprise security organizations.”
Netwrix, an organization that is engaged in providing configuration auditing solutions, concurs with the report’s findings and its leadership has noted that too many companies are unaware of what is transpiring in their respective IT infrastructures.
“Configuration auditing of information systems is essential to maintain security, governance and compliance. Organisations must track changes to their IT environments to detect security violations, troubleshoot issues, prevent downtime and maintain compliance with security standards and industry regulations,” explained Aidan Simister, Country Manager (UK & Ireland) for Netwrix, in a statement.
“You need to be able to see who has access to what at any single point of time and to monitor who breaches data and resources – and just because a user has a right or permission does not mean they should be exercising it.”
