Texas Department of Transportation successfully uses Belarc for monitoring cybersecurity controls
Sep 28, 2017
Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is successfully using Belarc's BelManage and Data Analytics products to monitor required cybersecurity controls on their 15,000 desktops, laptops, phones and 1,200 servers. TxDOT uses Belarc's products to independently verify and validate (IV&V) their important security controls on desktops, tablets, phones and servers, including virtual machines. TxDOT originally purchased Belarc for the IT security group, however the information is so useful that other groups such as their server operations and software licensing staff are also using the Belarc system.
"Belarc monitors all of TxDOT's computer assets throughout the State and automatically updates this information on a daily basis. Authenticated users access this data on a need to know basis via their Web browsers, said Ray Thorn, Belarc Government Sales Director. "Specifically Belarc supports the Center for Internet Security Top 5 Controls, such as identifying authorized and unauthorized software and hardware; secure configuration settings; continuous vulnerability assessments; use of administrator privileges among other controls."
"TxDOT decided that the easiest and most cost effective way to deliver these features was to use Belarc's SaaS implementation of our BelManage and Data Analytics products, said Mr. Thorn. In fact after approvals, Belarc's system was deployed to all of TxDOT IT assets in under one month. Belarc also offers this same system as on-premise implementation."
