Integrigy Accelerates Government FISMA and DoD 8500.1 Compliance for Oracle

AppSentry Automates the Data Collection, Analysis, and Reporting for FISMA and DoD Compliance of Oracle Databases, Oracle Application Servers, and Oracle Applications

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 12, 2006 -- Integrigy Corporation, a provider of application security solutions and consulting, today announced availability of Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 8500.1 compliance modules for its flagship auditing and vulnerability assessment tool AppSentry. Using a combination of pre-defined security policies, audits, and reports, AppSentry automates much of the Federal Government compliance effort for the Oracle Database, Oracle Application Server, and Oracle E-Business Suite 11i.

An important aspect of Federal Government compliance initiatives is implementation and adherence to recommended configuration requirements and guidelines. DoD Directive 8500.1 mandates all DoD information systems must be configured in accordance with "DoD approved security configuration guidelines." FISMA requires each Federal Government agency to develop minimally acceptable system configuration requirements and ensure compliance with the configuration requirements.

AppSentry automates the data collection, analysis, and reporting for FISMA and DoD recommended configuration guidelines and checklists. AppSentry now includes support for Defense Information Service Agency (DISA), Center for Internet Security, and Oracle Corporation security configuration checklists. The DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) for Databases, ERP packages, and Web Servers are automated by AppSentry for the Oracle Database, Oracle Application Server, and Oracle E-Business Suite 11i.

"Integrigy is committed to providing federal agencies a simple and effective method for enhancing the security of Oracle products that also automates much of the mandated compliance effort," said Stephen Kost, Chief Technology Officer of Integrigy. "Experience shows us that databases and applications with secure and audited configurations have fewer vulnerabilities and are better able to thwart attacks, thus implementing secure configurations is an important and meaningful part of the compliance effort."
