We live in an age of regulations, rules, and corporate policies. Keeping up with all of these requirements can not only be overwhelming, it can be massively expensive. A recent study from Babson College estimates the economy-wide cost of regulations to be $1.75 trillion. The time and resources required to prepare for an audit for most businesses is still staggering and many are unable to adequately prove compliance. Potential adverse side-effects and loses are not just monetary, either. Compliance breaches can cause public embarrassment and sometimes even mean legal consequences for high-level executives.
So how can you ensure your business is continuously compliant without incurring massive costs and man hours? HPE IT Operations Compliance Solution peers into your infrastructure to measure and enforce conformance to regulatory mandates and corporate configuration requirements. Designed to ensure IT compliance at the business service level, it provides a single, flexible policy model for use across all resource types. This unifies the IT compliance process across silos and provides a common definition of the desired state for operating. With IT Operations Compliance, you will be able to:

2. Ensure continuous compliance and remediation
HPE IT Operations Compliance allows you to identify policies, define business services and then tie them together so each service is subscribed to the policies it needs, and you can leverage existing processes such as change approvals and notifications. You can even link policies to services in the catalog so compliance begins when the service is created. This unique HPE technology determines which rules to run, for which resource, at what time. It will scan and remediate all the different resources in a business service regardless of resource type. This enables you to enforce service-level objectives and maintain ongoing security compliance.
3. Institute customized and on-demand reporting
Your business can easily prove compliance with federal regulations and standards such as PCI, HIPAA, SOX, and other compliance mandates. All you have to do is open a browser to view your current state of IT compliance across IT silos and share details about remediation timeframes. Sustain automated, ongoing compliance management, and stop project-based compliance checks that only report on a single point in time to pass an audit—and are likely out of date before the audit is over.
