After the devastating collapse of such companies as Enron and WorldCom, it became clear to U.S. lawmakers that tough new regulations were needed to govern corporate behavior. So in 2002, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) was passed, putting new standards in place for all publicly traded U.S. companies in an attempt to regain the investor confidence lost during this rash of high-profile accounting scandals.
Though these laws were enacted to increase accountability, facilitate reporting, and ensure that financial audits remain independent and accurate, many companies still struggle with the added expense of SOX compliance.
That’s why Alert Logic designed Threat Manager and Log Manager as easy, affordable solutions for SOX compliance and network security. By taking vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and log management solutions into the cloud, Threat Manager and Log Manager help automate and streamline SOX compliance, saving companies thousands of man-hours while easing the financial strains of compliance.
