Managing change is never an easy task. By proactively managing change through visibility and application of policies, organizations now have the ability to secure the change management process throughout the IT infrastructure. Drivers such as achieving SOX and C-198 compliance can be accomplished, while securely managing change and protecting against existing and unknown threats.
