Change Guardian 5.0 is released!

Change Guardian has been released. Change Guardian provides intelligence and workflow around events that can be used for the purpose of security monitoring, file integrity monitoring, configuration monitoring, and privileged user monitoring.

Change Guardian 5.0 adds the following key features:

  • Monitoring events from Microsoft Azure Active Directory (new license purchase required)
  • Enhanced user monitoring for on-premise Active Directory in conjunction with NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator, another product in the Micro Focus Identity, Access, and Security portfolio. This integration improves the ability to detect when users circumvent Active Directory administrative processes, such as when provisioning new users.
  • Significant security improvements designed to enable Change Guardian to pass a PCI-focused vulnerability scan for Windows and Active Directory environments.
  • Simplification of the deployment and management of agents in UNIX environments

Re: Change Guardian 5.0 is released!

Is there any more detail on this capability:

"Significant security improvements designed to enable Change Guardian to pass a PCI-focused vulnerability scan for Windows and Active Directory environments"

I don't see anything in the documentation on this?
