    SCM 6.0 is released!


    NetIQ is pleased to announce the availability of NetIQ Secure
    Configuration Manager 6.0!

    Secure Configuration Manager 6.0 is a significant release for existing
    and prospective customers with expanded assessment coverage, simplified
    integration and a new licensing model.

    Key enhancements with this release include:


    - Network Device support: Security configuration assessment coverage
    has been expanded to support more network devices, including
    out-of-the-box support for Cisco and Juniper devices. Where other
    network device support is needed, a flexible interface has been
    provided to allow customers or professional services to extend support
    to other network devices.
    - Sentinel integration: Events can be sent to Sentinel when security
    checks fail on an asset, or policy set, basis. Awareness of security
    vulnerabilities and compliance failures gives the security analyst
    relevant context for evaluating current threats.
    - Streamline integration with IT GRC solutions: Unified Compliance
    Framework interface (UCFi) standard integration support helps to
    significantly reduce the cost of ownership and improve usability of
    NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager when used with IT GRC solutions.
    - Infrastructure and content currency updates: This not only includes
    updates to much of the security content, but updates to enable
    operation on Windows 2012 R2, Microsoft SQL Server 2012, and 2014.


    SECURE CONFIGURATION MANAGER LICENSING

    With this release, licensing has been simplified from an endpoint model
    that counted each logical operating system and type of operating system,
    each database instance, and each web service to one that is focused on
    the asset. The license metrics are now:

    Per Server: multi-user OS and supported applications and DBs hosted on
    it
    Per Workstation: single user OS and supported applications and DBs
    hosted on it
    Per Device: logical network devices
    Per IBM i LPAR multi-user, IBM i logical partition LPAR multi-user, IBM
    i logical partition

    The SCAP modules and Traveling licenses have been updated to align with
    this change but remain available.
