FileWave Helps IT Departments Implement Best Practices for Compliance Management

FileWave Helps IT Departments Implement Best Practices for Compliance Management

WIL, Switzerland, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- FileWave, a technology leader of Mac OS X and Windows systems management software, announces today that its software applications are ideally suited to helping enterprise IT departments implement best practices to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) legislation.

According to the Gartner Group, spending on IT solutions for financial compliance management and corporate governance will account for 10-15 percent of IT budgets in 2006. Furthermore companies who choose one-off solutions for each regulatory challenge they face are likely to spend 10 times more on IT solutions for compliance than those that take a more sustained, programmatic approach.

FileWave(TM), a software management suite, and Asset Trustee(TM), an IT inventory management product, from FileWave help companies adopt a more systematic approach by streamlining their IT operations.

Asset Trustee ensures that an inventory of all applications installed on client computers (Mac or PC) is automatically sent to a central database called the Asset Trustee Inventory. This database is then used to create compliance reports. Meanwhile, Filewave automates the central distribution and management of all software installed on client machines, so further helping with compliance.

Filewave's support staff have also created a script within the product that provides guidelines for routine compliance tasks such as ensuring users have to enter passwords to log back on their computers after the machine has been idle for a time.

"Having the right software management applications can significantly reduce the regulatory burden," says Ben Forsyth, head of development of FileWave. "Our products help companies implement IT controls for compliance management without the need for complex new infrastructure projects."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second.
