SIMP - System Integrity Management Platform

Friday, July 17, 2015


SIMP is a framework that aims to provide a reasonable combination of security compliance and operational flexibility.

The ultimate goal of the project is to provide a complete management environment focused on compliance with the various profiles in the SCAP Security Guide Project and industry best practice.

Though it is fully capable out of the box, the intent of SIMP is to be molded to your target environment in such a way that deviations are easily identifiable to both Operations Teams and Security Officers.
