BrightTools Announces Release of New Activeworx Security Center v2.6

Grand Rapids, MI. -- BrightTools Inc. announced the release of new Activeworx v2.6 today. Activeworx provides enterprise grade security information management for leading security products, such as firewalls, vulnerability assessment tools, and more. The latest version expands on Activeworx's management abilities with a new configuration wizard, additional device support, and increased support for HIPAA and SOX compliancy.

The new configuration wizard simplifies implementation by guiding users through the installation, enabling administrators with minimal knowledge of Activeworx to begin managing their security products as quickly as possible.

"The new configuration wizard compiles seven distinct network configurations, such as database creation, that normally took a substantial amount of setup time for initial network-wide implementations," Jeff Richards, director of operations for BrightTools, explains. "By centrally automating these elaborate configurations, we anticipate reducing Activeworx' implementation time by as much as 75 percent."

Activeworx Security Center now supports over 50 security products with new device support including Tipping Point, Apple OS X, and newly added support for CyberGuard, Sonicwall, OpenBSD and more.

Activeworx Security Center has also increased its reporting and interactive graphs by adding over 70 new Tasks including support for the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and increased support for HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley. With Activeworx Security Center's advanced scheduling engine, you can schedule your compliance reports and have them delivered to your desktop or a central server at desired intervals.

Activeworx offers an excellent value with base packages available. Single device support is available starting at $1995.
