Cimcor and BMC Announce ISV Partnership
The CimTrak Integrity Suite Integration Module now offered for BMC Helix ITSM
MERRILLVILLE, Ind., September 1, 2020 – Cimcor Inc., the leader in next-generation, file and system integrity monitoring software, announced a partnership with BMC Software, Inc., a global leader in IT solutions for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise, positioning the top-ranked CimTrak Integrity Suite's integration into the BMC Helix ITSM solution in the BMC Marketplace platform. Teaming together to create a best practices approach for closed-loop change control, CimTrak's file and system integrity monitoring software augments the BMC Change Management application and its security processes with a validation and verification process. This process reconciles expected change with observed changes to highlight unknown and unexpected changes inside and outside of the application's change management window.
"The addition to the BMC Marketplace furthers Cimcor's dedication to helping organizations predictably and reliably implement enterprise security and compliance," said Cimcor CEO Robert E. Johnson, III. "Providing measurable benefits for both operations and security teams, this integration will have immediate impact as circumvented processes and malicious changes are immediately exposed for removal and remediation."
CimTrak's integration with the BMC Helix ITSM solution enables customers to identify unknown, unwanted, and unauthorized changes in real time by capturing the approved and authorized change request in BMC Helix ITSM and reconciling it with the observed changes in CimTrak. The result of this process enables the identification and highlighting of when a process is circumvented, or when malicious activity is developing. This closed-loop change control value proposition is further extended as CimTrak provides roll-back and remediation capabilities as well as change prevention.
"Organizations that are evolving into an Autonomous Digital Enterprise need comprehensive IT service management solutions," said Sam Lakkundi, Vice President, Innovation and Head of BMC Innovation Labs, BMC Software. "Together, CimTrak and BMC will propel customers' IT transformations with intelligent, people-centric user experiences, whether in the cloud or on-premise."
"The combined results of this integration greatly mitigate the risk of breaches and security threats while driving higher operational availability," Johnson remarked when discussing closed-loop change control.
