Security management is an intentionally broad term here. In systems management solutions especially, what you may get as it relates to security can vary greatly. However, because security is such a hot (and budgeted for) aspect of systems management, most solutions have been working to strengthen their security story by adding additional capabilities.
Vulnerability scanning and remediation are typically beyond the scope of a systems management solution; what is not uncommon is a vulnerability scanner that generates reports, alerts or possibly triggers actions like support tickets or the execution of pre-defined scripts. Controlling and enforcing encryption policies, and authentication features all fall under the umbrella of security management. Just some of the security related features to consider, watch out for and investigate, include…
- Vulnerability Scanner
- Access Logs
- Containment and Recovery
- Data Privacy
- Network Element Functions
- Security Alarm/Event Reporting
- Security Audit Trail
- Security Event Detection
- Security Related Information Distributions
- System/Resource Access Control
This is one of many systems management features covered here at AppDetails. When considering what features are important to you, we recommend you also contemplate the importance of a strong software inventory, application deployment, an intuitive user console and other systems management features.
