Overview
Provides advanced capabilities such as risk calculators and risk heat maps for risk analysis and monitoring.

Symantec Control Compliance Suite (CCS) delivers the core assessment technologies to enable security and compliance programs, as well as support IT operations in the data center. Control Compliance Suite delivers asset autodiscovery, automates security assessments across procedural, technical, and third-party controls, and calculates and aggregates risk scores according to business-defined threshholds. Customers use this information for operational- and mandate-based reporting, as well as to prioritize remediation and risk reduction in the data center. 

Each of the five Control Compliance Suite Modules is available independently or as part of a broader suite. The Control Compliance Suite Control Studio and Infrastructure combines evidence from the multiple modules as well as third party systems; and maps assets and evidence to control statements, standards, and policies and regulations to enable mandate- based and operational reporting. Role-based, customizable Web-based dashboards and reports enable the organization to measure risk and track the performance of its security and compliance programs. Workflow integration with ticketing systems and Symantec server hardening solutions automates remediation and facilitates the hardening of the data center infrastructure.
