Automated Security Auditing
At Decision Consultants we are familiar with the use of auditing software such as Microsoft's Baseline Security Analyzer tool or GFI LANguard to perform a variety of automatic system scans to identify potential problems:
Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer
Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) is the free, best practices vulnerability assessment tool for the Microsoft platform. It is a tool designed for the IT Professional that helps with the assessment phase of an overall security management strategy. MBSA includes a graphical and command line interface that can perform local or remote scans of Windows systems.
Microsoft Operations Manager
Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) is a next-generation network management software platform that monitors the availability, performance and security of your information system by proactively identifying problems and trends occurring on servers across your entire network. Decision Consultants' Microsoft Operations Manager consulting services include help with configuring MOM or outsourcing a comprehensive remote monitoring solution.
