Preventsys, the pioneer in automated security auditing, announced the addition of a new policy module for Government information security auditing, risk management and remediation to its Preventsys Network Audit and Policy Assurance System. The module consists of preprogrammed policies for National Security Agency (NSA) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Information Security guidelines, plus a framework and library of security rules for the rapid development of additional government policies which can be automatically tested for compliance on large government networks.

These new policies contain guidelines for the secure deployment and configuration of hardware and software products on large networks, focusing on aspects common to most networks today. Some of the areas covered during auditing of these policies include firewalls, databases, operating systems, Microsoft Windows servers and network architecture, routers and cryptographic solutions for data storage and communication. They are designed for any government or non-government organization that requires a high-level of protection of sensitive information and systems.
