Computer security is a branch of Information Security. The main objective of computer security is protection of information and property from theft, corruption, or natural disaster, while allowing the information and property to remain accessible and productive to its intended users. We are in the era of Cloud computing where we are sharing software, data access and storage services installing firewall and antivirus software are not enough to protect computer systems, it is more complex then that. we have to take a detailed look at security standards and guideline to protect data, because now a days hackers are not just only looking for credit card numbers, bank account information, after compromising the computer security they install botnet on the system and this botnet can be used to launch attacks against government, military, financial institutions, infrastructure (utility companies), and disrupt communications. That is why USGCB and NIST issue strict guidelines to secure computer systems. In order to make this gigantic task easier Secure Bytes has designed Secure Windows Auditor which secure computer systems and helping the institutions in implementing these standards and guidelines.
It also facilitates in achieving strengthened governance´s and Regulatory Compliance Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) (USA) , Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) (USA) , Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) (USA) Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) (USA) , Data Protection (EU, UK, Canadian) J-SOX (Japan), LSF (France), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI/DSS), security frameworks such as ISO 27001, and COBIT or NIST.
