The C5 Auditor Pro is built on open XML standards (OVAL and XCCDF) for technical control auditing and benchmarking using the NIST SCAP security checklists. C5 Auditor Pro automates the measurement and reporting of systemsâ compliance with regulatory security requirements including Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC), FISMA and NERC/FERC.
With a February 1, 2008 deadline for meeting the OMB mandate for FDCC quickly approaching, several agencies have requested Secure Elements offer a portable version of their C5 Compliance Platform. The C5 Auditor Pro meets this need. The C5 Auditor Pro provides users with a SCAP auditing solution that is portable, includes out of the box integration with desktop tools for analysis, automates the process of pinpointing noncompliant machines and systems, and enables IT staff to focus on remediation rather than the discovery of problems.
âIn working with NIST and at the request of a number of government agencies, we were able to adapt our enterprise compliance product for those individuals responsible for the IT security auditing process, â commented Ned Miller, CEO, Secure Elements. âC5 Auditor Pro is designed for those who need a portable NIST SCAP auditing tool enabling faster audit reports with a consistent methodology.â
Secure Elements will be demonstrating the solution at the NIST IT Security Automation Conference on the exhibition floor. C5 Auditor Pro will be widely available in the fourth quarter of 2007.
