How does this help you address your compliance needs?

Healthcare sector is a main area of focus for CP&C and VMware. With our updated templates, Healthcare Organizations can now leverage this content to prepare for upcoming audits in 2k12. With these templates and VCM’s automated patching solution, Healthcare organizations that use Hitrust as a source of guidance will also be able to apply these new rules, dashboards and content for audit requirements. CP&C also updated SOX, FISMA and GLBA templates as well helping folks out in D.O.D, Federal Government and Finance sectors with Continuous Compliance. VMware CP&C is also pleased to announce that we now cover the full spectrum of auditing settings for Vista, W7, and 2k8, and 2k8 R2.
