What is Symantec Control Compliance Suite?

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.

Symantec Control Compliance Suite is also known as Control Compliance Suite.

A good security tool for vulnerability assessment and asset prioritization

What is our primary use case?

There are two use cases. One is the compliance of policies or standards, and the second is vulnerability assessment. The Symantec Control and Compliance Suite helps us in the development of policies and policy lifecycles. We perform vulnerability assessments on our technology infrastructure and compliance audits to do a compliance check on CIS benchmarks. We can perform CIS benchmarking and compliance testing with this tool.

Pros and Cons

  • "I find the vulnerability assessment and asset prioritization feature valuable."
  • "The support mechanism can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

The vulnerability scanning market is mature. I would recommend products like BeyondTrust, Rapid7, Qualys, Nexpose, and Nessus. These are all good, but they have their limitations. For example, some of these products aren't specialized for network scanning, and you'll have to use another product for that. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Symantec Control and Compliance Suite an eight.
