Codima autoMap now integrates with MBSA simplifying security status analysis

(PresseBox) (London, ) Codima Technologies, provider of best practice tools for VoIP and Infrastructure Inventory management, today announced autoMap™ support for the Microsoft® Office Visio® 2007 Connector for the Microsoft® Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA). The award winning network inventory and visualization tool autoMap™ enables businesses to discover, display and now perform a Baseline Security Analysis of their Microsoft infrastructure.

autoMap™ uses Microsoft® Office Visio™ to automatically generate topology drawings and visualize entire infrastructure networks. By adding support for the MBSA tool to autoMap™, Codima has significantly simplified the normally difficult and time consuming task of discovering, displaying, and analyzing the security status of networks and made the process more intuitive.

Once a network drawing has been created in autoMap®, the Visio® Connector for MBSA displays a smart tag when the user hovers over a computer shape, enabling the user to perform a MBSA scan from the drawing. The Visio® 2007 Connector for MBSA displays color-coded results on the drawing that represents the baseline security status of the network. Detailed baseline security reports can be displayed in a report window by selecting an individual computer shape to further help simplify the security status analysis process.

“Businesses today are balancing requirements to control costs while emphasizing security issues. With the integration of MBSA to the autoMap™ platform we help network managers to accelerate security analysis enhancing the value of their existing systems,” said CEO Christer Mattsson. “This reflects our aim to provide easy to use, cost efficient and highly graphical tools and how we can leverage the Visio® technology”
