Do you know the present state of your PCs? Are they currently compliant and secure? Are you sure?

Confidently answer yes! Policy Commander® gives you the peace of mind, knowing that your PCs remain in their desired state. Policy Commander proactively and automatically enforces corporate PC standards while eliminating future configuration drift - resulting in reduced vulnerabilities, protection of private information, compliance with regulatory mandates and optimal PC performance.

Experience Control in consistently meeting your regulatory mandates.  Policy Commander locks down a PC and restricts its access to private information, a necessary requirement of information protection regulations. With Policy Commander's granularity, policies are only applied when needed - minimizing organizational impact.  Policy Commander's compliance solutions include an extensive library of security policies with corresponding guides to simplify adherence with specific regulatory requirements.


Regulatory Solutions

PCI Compliance Solution: Secures private cardholder information.

GLBA Compliance Solution: Protects customers' private financial information.

HIPAA Compliance Solution: Guards patients' private healthcare information.

 

Policy Commander helps you secure your enterprise by automating the implementation and enforcement of policies on Windows computers. Policies can target specific PC configurations based on applicability rules or templates.  The patented technology continuously monitors the state of computers on the network — delivering detailed, real-time insight into policy compliance. Policy Commander automatically remediates non-compliant computers without administrator intervention — ensuring continuous policy enforcement. Policy Commander significantly reduces the time and resources needed to create, test, and implement any security policy for any Windows-based system.

With Policy Commander, compliance information can be summarized in a Console, or presented in detail for system administrators. Policy Commander automatically alerts users via email when a computer is out of compliance, and can automatically enforce policies on non-compliant systems.

Policy Commander provides administrators the granularity to define the role and security level of a computer. Policy Commander then automatically applies the appropriate security policies for each computer's role and security level. Policy Commander maintains security policies in a central location and provides an intuitive Console for centralized administration. With its Policy Editor, you can also add your own policies or customize existing ones — accommodating your unique network infrastructure and organizational security needs.


Policy Commander Components

Console: The Console is your command center for managing compliance. It is the user-interface for policy assignment and gives you a dashboard view into your current compliance posture.

Policy Editor: The Policy Editor is your interface for developing or customizing policies.

Database: The Database serves as the repository for storing information, such as Client status, computer compliance and policy details.

Client: The Client is the software engine running on the managed computer that enforces policies, reports current status information and intelligently alters group membership.

Channel Server: The Channel Server manages the communication between the Console, Database, and managed computers.

Knowledge Base: The Knowledge Base provides you with a library of security policies and templates written by New Boundary Technologies.

Whether it’s locking down a USB port, disabling function keys, securing a file, or controlling PC performance settings, Policy Commander® is the answer. Policy Commander automatically monitors and remediates enterprise PCs to your desired state.  By enforcing simple, granular policies at the local level, Policy Commander secures all fixed and mobile PCs, even when off-line.


Key Features and Benefits of Policy Commander

Constant Assessment: Maintains ongoing compliance by automatically applying appropriate policies to dynamically grouped computers based on their matching specific system attributes.
