PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Cisco ® Security Auditor is a software solution that extends the Cisco portfolio of lifecycle security-management products. Demands for privacy mandates, improved network availability, and security assurance have accelerated the need for security-compliance auditing. Cisco Security Auditor provides customers with new levels of security assurance by helping them to cost-effectively audit their network infrastructure against corporate security policies and industry best practices.
The Cisco Security Auditor offloads manual auditing from the technology administrator, elevating the administrator's role to that of security manager. Cisco Security Auditor implements a business-centric, policy profile management model that allows customers to build high-level corporate policies based on industry best practices, while the application of those policies to specific network devices is offloaded to the Cisco Security Auditor software.
The automated auditing capabilities of the software allow customers to eliminate costly manual auditing operations for large-scale networks, drastically reducing the time required to perform an audit. Cisco Security Auditor also provides security-improvement recommendations and reporting that simplify the process of addressing network-security vulnerabilities. This allows management operations to effectively manage the risks related to their network.
Table 1 lists the primary features of the Cisco Security Auditor.
