The Microsoft® Solution Accelerators and the System Center Service Manager teams are pleased to announce the release of the Microsoft IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager and the IT Compliance Management Series for Windows® 7, Windows Server® 2008 R2, Windows Server, and Microsoft System Center.

Implementing these end-to-end solutions with System Center will help organizations to shift the enforcement and management of IT governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) requirements away from personnel and directly to underlying Microsoft technologies, and enable them to meet their compliance and regulatory commitments in an efficient and reliable manner. This end-to-end compliance solution assists medium and large organizations in managing and automating IT GRC responsibilities by:

· Improving IT GRC program management efficiency while reducing costs,

· Simplifying and consolidating IT GRC workloads, and

· Increasing executive, audit, and management visibility into their IT GRC programs.

System Center Service Manager helps reduce costs and improve IT re­sponsiveness through the power of its integrated platform. With built-in process­es and workflow for incident and problem resolution, change control, and its con­figuration management database, Service Manager orchestrates activities and connects knowledge with System Center Operations Manager, System Center Configuration Manager, and Active Directory® Domain Services.

IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager

The IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager provides end-to-end compliance and risk management and automa­tion for desktop and datacenter computers. Deeply integrated with Service Manager, the IT GRC Process Management pack translates over 400 complex regulations and standards into authoritative control objectives and control activities for the IT organization’s compliance program.

The IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager—combined with the IT Compliance Management Series—helps customers understand and bind complex business objectives to their Microsoft infrastructure in an operationally efficient manner. 

IT Compliance Management Series

The IT Compliance Management Series—a combination of IT Compliance Management Libraries for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, and Microsoft System Center—provides prescriptive guidance to help IT pros configure Microsoft products to address specific IT GRC requirements. This series helps to bridge the knowledge gap for IT pros by translating auditor expectations into real IT tasks through the use of control activities that are specific to a particular technology or platform. In addition to Microsoft System Center Service Manager and the Microsoft IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager, the series will help IT pros understand and bind complex control objectives to their Microsoft infrastructure.

The series takes advantage of the ability of System Center Service Manager to integrate with System Center Configuration Manager to automate the monitoring, validation, and reporting of the compliance state of Microsoft products. The supplied control activities bind complex IT GRC re­quirements, stated as control objectives, to actual product configuration settings and events. System Center is then able to act as an IT GRC management and over­sight solution for an organization.
