in Business, Compliance, Security, Viewtrust

When Virtustream acquired Viewtrust in 2014, we saw a visionary and highly-sophisticated technology company that was well ahead of its time. With the great enterprise cloud migration just starting to get underway, it was clear that security and compliance would quickly become a top priority for companies across major industries.

Four years later, Viewtrust is one of the most important and valuable tools in the Virtustream suite of products. Relied upon by major public sector agencies and global enterprises, Viewtrust protects customers from persistent and evolving cyber threats.

This year at Dell Tech World, we proudly announced the next generation of Viewtrust, our trademark risk management and continuous compliance monitoring solution – now with Software-as-a-Service Support.

With this release, Virtustream evolves its ability to extend secure compliance and risk management capabilities to the cloud. Now available to all customers as a self-service SaaS or managed service model, Viewtrust provides organizations with a comprehensive and near real-time view of their entire risk and compliance posture across physical and cloud environments whether private, public or hybrid.

Additionally, with continuous monitoring and automated risk analysis based on customized threat and impact values, organizations can assess and address issues in a more proactive, efficient, repeatable and consistent manner across the entire business. 

Key features and benefits include: 

Regulatory compliance with lower costs and less complexity
Viewtrust continuously monitors the IT landscape, identifying potential risks and alerting teams to potential issues for proactive remediation. Like all Viewtrust builds, the latest version fully meets major industry compliance requirements, including FISMA, SOX, PCI DSS, HIPAA, ISO 27001, FedRAMP, in addition to adhering to GDPR requirements and custom user-defined compliance frameworks.

Continuous monitoring at massive scale
With Viewtrust, organizations have a scalable cloud-native platform for ingesting, collecting, storing and processing data across all data sources. The new Viewtrust employs the latest and most advanced risk-scoring algorithms to ensure regulatory compliance control requirements are always being met. Every key detail is stored in an easy-to-use dashboard for easy compliance reporting. 

Automated 360° views of risk and compliance
Viewtrust automates compliance and reduces the costs associated with risk management by delivering a true 360° enterprise risk view that can cover virtually any collection of existing systems. This empowers enterprises to minimize risk and improve compliance across physical and cloud IT environments.

Audit reporting made easy
With preformatted and fully-customizable reporting templates built in, the new Viewtrust makes auditing and compliance even faster and more efficient. Workflow-based automation manages the entire audit package creation lifecycle, from initiation and validation all the way to certification and accreditation. 

Defense Information Systems Agency eMASS integrations
Viewtrust integrates directly with the US Government’s Defense Information Systems Agency’s Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service (eMASS) application. This enables Information Assurance teams to automate the publication of compliance statements, assessments, artifacts and Plan of Action and Milestones into eMASS. Viewtrust automation significantly reduces the time spent completing steps three and four of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) risk management framework, which significantly reduces the time that teams spend documenting the compliance requirements of federal agencies.

As the world of enterprise information security, risk management and regulatory compliance continues to grow more complex, virtualized and distributed, Virtustream is committed to helping organizations stay secure and compliant without the traditional headaches of risk and compliance monitoring. It’s no wonder so many major public sector agencies and global enterprises rely on Viewtrust to monitor compliance and protect their systems and customers from cyber threats.
