Flexible policy formation — Within minutes, Policy Auditor allows for the creation of new policies designed by you, set by corporate governance, or from authoritative sites such as Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC). Real-time audits and controls for setting the frequency of data capture deliver timely information for compliance.

Predefined templates and controls — Policy Auditor comes with predefined benchmark templates and the ability to ensure protection of the business by employing blackout windows that halt data capture during key business periods.

McAfee Policy Auditor is an agent-based, purpose-built IT audit solution that leverages the XCCDF and OVAL security standards to automate the processes required for internal and external IT audits. By mapping IT controls against pre-defined policy content, Policy Auditor helps you report consistently and accurately against policies.

Seamless integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® (ePO™) eases agent deployment, management, and reporting. The single ePO console lowers cost of ownership by consolidating endpoint security management and compliance management. You save hardware, training, and operational costs and get unified control over the policies and protections on each host. The ePO web dashboard represents policy compliance by benchmark and lets you sort details or view by organization. Custom reports can be fully automated, scheduled, or exported.

A Continuous Audit Model automates the process of ensuring up-to-date data for audits and built in waivers support business processes.

Through innovation and integration, Policy Auditor targets operational processes to streamline every step of compliance validation. Find out how simple and fast proving compliance can be.

Four Policy Auditor tabs
Four Policy Auditor tabs in the ePO console make it easy to deploy policies and manage audit processes.

Benefits and Features:

Streamline proof of compliance
Use prebuilt policy templates that eliminate manual effort and demonstrate adherence to key industry mandates and internal governance policies, including PCI DSS, SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, FISMA, and the best-practice frameworks ISO 27001 and COBIT. Policy Auditor includes a purpose-built PCI dashboard that delivers a consolidated view of the state of compliance by PCI requirement/control.

Receive unprecedented integration with McAfee ePO and Vulnerability Manager
Use McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software to lower cost of ownership by consolidating endpoint security management and compliance management, easing agent deployment, administration, and reporting. Integration with McAfee Vulnerability Manager enables organizations to consolidate agent and agentless audits.

Get the latest standards in compliance validation
Keep updated on compliance standards. Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) validation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) enables agencies to comply with the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) standard.

Customize and extend Policy Auditor IT controls checking
Create rules from any scripting language supported by the system being audited to extend the check capabilities of Policy Auditor. Sample languages include VBScript, batch files, Perl, and Python.

Prevent disruption to critical business applications with blackout window
Set the frequency of data capture to support automated reports with accurate data. To prevent disruption to critical business applications, a blackout window lets IT operations block audit data capture during key business periods.

Get Fast, automated import of industry benchmarks
Download benchmarks from authoritative sites. Within minutes, view detailed security guidance to confirm regulatory compliance or design your own internal governance policies based on security community best practices.

Solutions:

Efficienctly automate audit processes with advanced, purpose-built IT auditing software.

Raise Productivity, Lower Audit Costs
If compliance mandates are intended to improve security, why do audits and endpoint policy management take so much time away from managing IT risk? That’s because myriad point processes and products result in ad hoc efforts and error.

McAfee® Policy Auditor software offers an optimized approach. Integration and innovation produce real ROI and significant productivity gain, while making audits painless and less expensive.

Prove Compliance with Key Industry Mandates
By mapping IT controls against predefined policy content, McAfee Policy Auditor software automates manual audit processes and helps you report consistently and accurately against internal and external policies. McAfee Policy Auditor software ships with benchmark templates for a variety of compliance mandates: PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA, FISMA, and the best-practice frameworks ISO 27001 and COBIT. Templates cover Microsoft Windows, Sun Solaris, Linux Red Hat, HP/UX, and Apple Macintosh (Mac) OS-X platforms.

Cut Management Effort with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® Software Integration
Seamless integration with McAfee ePO™ software eases agent deployment, management, and reporting. The single ePO console lowers cost of ownership by consolidating endpoint security management and compliance management. You save money on hardware, training, and operational costs and get unified control over the policies and protection on each host.

Unified Policy Audits Reduce Time to Compliance
Organizations can run consolidated audits across both managed (agent-based) and unmanaged (agentless) systems. From the ePO console, they can define and select a unified policy benchmark once and have the assessment performed across many different asset types. This reduces the effort needed to run audits and, for the first time, provides organizations with a single unified report across all assets.

Use Scripting to Extend McAfee Policy Auditor Software Check Capabilities
Create rules from any scripting language supported by the system being audited to extend the check capabilities of policy agents further. Sample languages include VBScript, batch files, Perl, and Python.

Meet the New Standard in Compliance Validation: SCAP
McAfee Policy Auditor software sets a new standard with its aggressive implementation of the Secure Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) family. This open standard enables interoperability among products and services and helps reduce audit time, expense, and effort. Supported protocols include:

  • eXtensible Checklist Configuration Description Format (XCCDF)
  • Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL)
  • Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE)
  • Common Configuration Enumeration (CCE)
  • Common Platform Enumeration (CPE)
  • Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)

Import and Adapt Industry Benchmarks in Minutes
Through SCAP support and its own innovative engineering, McAfee helps you validate compliance easily, even when benchmarks and policies change. Download benchmarks from authoritative sites, such as the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) benchmark on the NIST website, and view detailed security guidance to benchmarks. Uniform benchmarks limit misinterpretations among security teams and external auditors.

Ensure Up-To-Date Data and Reduce Disruptions
An innovative continuous audit model helps security and audit teams ensure data is current and accurate. It eliminates manual data generation for internal and external audits. To prevent disruption to critical business applications, a blackout window lets IT operations specify times when audits may not be conducted.

Align Business and Audit Processes
Audits are never convenient, but they can now be less disruptive. You can document and grant waivers to justify deviations from policy, and set expiration dates to limit exposure.

  • Exemption—Excuses a system from all audits
  • Suppression—An exception that is suppressed from reports

Simplify Trouble Ticketing
When audits detect issues, ePO helps you create and track them easily. Optional integrations let you push tickets to third-party trouble ticketing systems like Remedy.

Enforce Compliance Through McAfee Remediation Manager Software
Go beyond identifying problems. Import McAfee Policy Auditor software results into McAfee Remediation Manager software for automated remediation of noncompliant systems.

Continuous Compliance Through McAfee Change Control Software
Audit and remediate and then prevent unauthorized changes ensuring continuous compliance to policy.
