Meeting IT Compliance Requirements
IT compliance requirements are a complex issue which present a great deal of challenges to businesses of any size. Technology compliance rules often require you to monitor hundreds and even thousands of deployed applications. It is important that solutions for meeting compliance requirements are efficient, cost-effective, and non-intrusive.
One of the most widespread IT security compliance requirements states that every action that could impact sensitive data must be tracked. A possible solution is to record all database queries from the main user application. However, if there are 3rd-party utilities accessing data independently, this approach is useless.

Efficient IT Security Compliance Solution
With Ekran System, your organization can meet IT compliance requirements of various standards such as HIPAA, NERC, FFIEC, FISMA, FERPA, PCI, and SOX all at once thus eliminating the need for several dedicated solutions. Ekran System provides complete coverage of all user activity on servers and desktops, whether it is an application, a webpage opened in an Internet browser, or any visible area of the screen. This provides compliance auditors with undeniable evidence and Ekran System allows you to quickly create audit reports which can be performed with easy keyword searches.
- Monitoring every application from start to end - Ekran System allows you to save the time of compliance officers who spend dozens of hours collecting information on each and every application used in the corporate network hoping to make sure that it has a component responsible for compliance audit logging. Regardless of the type of software application, all activity performed is recorded in an integrated video format. As such Ekran System eliminates the need to monitor each application separately.
- Ensuring credibility - Ekran System provides reliable security infrastructure and complete playback of user sessions which proves the credibility of the source of user activity. You can store data in secure MS SQL databases in order to comply with database security protocols.
- Revealing the true identity of the “administrator” - Regulatory compliance in IT, where user identity can be shared or associated with an automated system process, stresses the necessity to assign an exact individual user / person to particular actions. You cannot provide an external auditor with convincing evidence if data was accessed via a shared “administrator” account. To meet IT compliance requirements, the identity of the person accessing the data must be provided. Ekran System provides you with an advanced authentication tool, allowing you to reveal the exact identity of the user.
A highly flexible pricing model makes Ekran Systems one of the best solutions to ensure IT compliance with the requirements, allowing cost-effective deployment on any number of endpoints.
