Whitepaper: Achieving Network Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Compliance

by NetcordiaApr 16, 2010

For IT organizations, the impact of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) can be huge in terms of amount of time and resources consumed. Even though the compliance mandate should improve consistency and standardization across the network infrastructure, the new requirements are a huge burden for IT organizations.

Even harder, the amount of time needed to prove compliance to the auditors can range into weeks or months � critical when IT staffs are already stretched too thin.

This white describes how organizations can quickly achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance across the network infrastructure. Most importantly, instead of manually handling this complicated task, the paper highlights the value of automation and proactive management. It provides a detailed description of how the PCI DSS standard impacts the network infrastructure and how organization can automate many of the processes to eliminate the risk of failed audits.

Whitepaper: How NetMRI's Unique Intelligence

by NetcordiaFeb 11, 2008

Business is experiencing a growing dependence on network services along with a shortage of appropriately skilled IT staffs. It is no longer efficient or cost effective to use fragmented real-time workarounds and extensive post-event investigation to prevent potentially catastrophic network service interruptions. A holistic, enterprise-wide view supported by efficient analytics is becoming crucial to maintain network service levels to meet user expectations at minimal business risk. Netcordia's NetMRI solution combines a distinctive "out-of-the-box" analytic engine with high integrity data collection to produce a unified view across truly heterogeneous networked IT ecosystems. Because of this holistic view, the NOC and the broader IT organization can achieve much more efficient problem diagnosis and remediation. This minimizes slowdowns and interruptions in networked services that can have a severe impact on business performance.
