McAfee Change Reconciliation
McAfee Change Reconciliation creates a comprehensive inventory of changes carried out on all systems, grouping and matching them with change tickets and approvals. It flags ad hoc changes made without approvals, and reports on emergency changes that were made with improper documentation. Implemented in conjunction with McAfee Change Control or McAfee Configuration Control, this solution provides granular change details encapsulated and attached within the change management solution (such as BMC/Remedy) for automated closed-loop processing of the trouble ticket or change request.
With Change Reconciliation, you can:
- Extend the reach and enhance the efficacy of enterprise change management solutions. McAfee provides the unique endpoint ability to enforce policies and control, while monitoring all system-level changes.
- Eliminate ad hoc changes. Change Reconciliation automatically provides detailed documentation for authorized changes and creates incident tickets for emergency changes, reducing the burden on IT staff and meeting internal compliance.
- Integrate with other widely used change management systems, configuration management databases, and even custom ticketing systems to ensure strong controls for Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) projects and those managing change-sensitive critical service infrastructures.
Features & Benefits
Close the loop between change approvals and implementation
Tie change approvals to change actions — a step that’s critical to strong IT service management (ITSM). This is typically a mandatory control for SOX compliance under the Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) framework, and helps you meet Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices.
Enhance your security with a change-approval policy
Create a change-approval policy that tracks approved changes, flags unapproved changes, and prevents potentially risky “piggyback” changes from being made on top of approved changes. Then, organize and document all changes for easy compliance reporting.
