McAfee Change Reconciliation creates a comprehensive inventory of changes carried out on all systems, grouping and matching them with change tickets and approvals. It flags ad hoc changes made without approvals, and reports on emergency changes that were made with improper documentation. Implemented in conjunction with McAfee Change Control or McAfee Configuration Control, this solution provides granular change details encapsulated and attached within the change management solution (such as BMC/Remedy) for automated closed-loop processing of the trouble ticket or change request.
With Change Reconciliation, you can:
Tie change approvals to change actions — a step that’s critical to strong IT service management (ITSM). This is typically a mandatory control for SOX compliance under the Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) framework, and helps you meet Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices.
Create a change-approval policy that tracks approved changes, flags unapproved changes, and prevents potentially risky “piggyback” changes from being made on top of approved changes. Then, organize and document all changes for easy compliance reporting.
McAfee Change Reconciliation does not have minimum system requirements.

Companies reported […]
There’s been a lot of talk about the value of public-private partnerships in moving the U.S. toward a more robust cyber security posture. And let’s be honest: there’s also been a lot of private sector skepticism about how much the Administration really believed in the concept or how much they would do to make it […]
