THE BOTTOM LINE: BETA
VigilEnt Policy Center 2.0
Business Case: Ensuring that your employees understand security guidelines can protect your company from financial loss and negative public exposure. VigilEnt Policy Center simplifies document distribution and offers tools to monitor user acceptance and understanding of policies.
Technology Case: Limited to the Windows platform, VigilEnt Policy Center integrates easily with existing e-mail servers, Microsoft IIS Web servers, and SQL Server databases. Browser-based clients minimize user installation issues, and built-in import features simplify the process of adding users and groups.
Pros:

+ Simple, nontechnical user interface

+ Web-based policy publishing and user training

+ Automated monitoring of user acceptance and understanding

+ Compatible with common document formats
Cons:

- Some UI inconsistency
Cost: License fee is US$12,500, plus $4.50 to $17.00 per user per year, including support and upgrades. Per-user fees depend on number of users and subscription length.
Platform(s): Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 with IIS or built-in Web server. Client runs inside Microsoft and Netscape browsers. A SQL Server database for policy repository is recommended.
