With the summer solstice quickly fading into the rear-view mirror,australia-beach-cereal-1089168.jpg we're reminded that we're nearly halfway through 2019 already. During these summer months, people often turn their attention to beaches, barbecues, and vacations; and as a result, the work days tend to be more relaxed than during the busy months. Given this, now may be the perfect time for a mid-year checkup on your compliance and vulnerability risk management software and processes.

According to Gartner research, by 2020, 100% of large enterprises will be asked to report to their board of directors on cybersecurity and technology risks at least annually. 

If your IT department was asked to report on those risks today, do you have the necessary tools to deliver such a report? Even if you do, how much effort would it take to compile the requested information into an effective report? If your organization lacks the proper tools and processes to answer those questions efficiently and effectively, you may be more at risk than you even realize!

Trying to manage thousands of servers spread across various business units and geographic locations may 1-dashboard-risk_2.pngseem like an overwhelming task, but it doesn't have to be. With Micro Focus' Data Center Automation (DCA) suite, you can quickly assess threats and automatically fix vulnerabilities. Our compliance and risk dashboards help you keep your finger on the pulse of your systems, and our intelligent scheduler makes it easy to install fixes during maintenance windows. With built-in role-based access control, you can empower your resource group owners to patch and maintain their own environments. With DCA, you can streamline your processes, reduce manual errors, and keep yourself protected against new threats quicker.
