    Packages deliver automated File Integrity Compliance and Point of Sale
    configuration auditing

    
    SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 11 /CNW/ -- nCircle today announced new configuration
auditing and file integrity monitoring options designed for the retail sector
and businesses subject to PCI. The packages provide two new capabilities: an
agentless configuration auditing solution for retail stores with point of sale
systems such as cash registers, and a file integrity compliance option for
organizations that want to get started with PCI compliance quickly and easily.
The new packages streamline compliance monitoring processes by automating
processes that were previously either manual or simply not possible. The new
package is based on nCircle Configuration Compliance Manager, the industry's
leading agentless configuration audition solution and part of the nCircle
security risk and compliance suite.

    "Configuration auditing has traditionally been difficult or impossible
for point of sale systems, and the PCI Data Security Standard requires
merchants to monitor the integrity of critical files," said Mark Wood, VP of
Product Management at nCircle. "nCircle's Configuration Compliance Manager
product has long had these capabilities, but these new packages make it even
easier for our customers to get started monitoring their security and ensure
compliance at the lowest possible cost."
    "nCircle has a great solution for configuration auditing on point of sale
systems and for file integrity compliance," said Shekar Swamy, President,
American Technology Corporation, a St. Louis based company specializing in PCI
compliance solutions. "nCircle's solutions combined with our services offering
provides an easy solution to PCI compliance."
    Configuration auditing provides continuous system auditing to discover
system configurations and detect changes. nCircle's unique solution performs
configuration auditing without requiring software agents to be installed on
the monitored system, a key requirement for most point of sale systems such as
cash registers. nCircle's file integrity compliance capability is also
agentless, and enables the monitoring of specific files on a system for
changes. File integrity compliance is mandatory under the PCI Data Security
Standard.
