Extending our support for leading database management systems, firewalls and operating systems, as well as emerging technologies like virtualization, reinforces Ecora's commitment to provide detailed configuration reporting for the major systems currently in use,” said James Sayles, Chief Compliance and Security Advisor at Ecora. “Additionally, with VISA's deadlines around PCI Data Security Standard compliance approaching at the end of September, it is essential to be able to generate reports validating appropriate firewall configurations, especially from industry leaders like Cisco and Checkpoint.” About Auditor Professional
