Micro Focus Expands Automated IT Compliance & Vulnerability Risk Management


Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced the release of Data Center Automation (DCA) for software-as-service (SaaS) delivery, offering more cost-effective vulnerability risk and IT compliance management.

Micro Focus DCA identifies server vulnerabilities and automates remediation through a centralised approach – both on-prem and in the cloud. With DCA, users can see which servers are not compliant and remediate vulnerabilities with automated, agentless patching using SLO-based scheduling, bridging the gap between security and operations.

“Micro Focus is committed to delivering SaaS-based solutions across our products, and this latest release enhances our customers’ ability to overcome the challenges associated with relentless threats and increasingly complex compliance standards,” said Travis Greene, Sr. Director of ITOM Product Marketing. “With the new SaaS deployment option, Data Center Automation customers have a fast path to orchestrate, standardise and prioritise end-to-end infrastructure patching and continuous compliance management in a unified approach.”

New capabilities of Micro Focus DCA 2022.05 include:

  • Micro Focus SaaS provides fortified deployment and secure operations with ISO 27001 certified hosting and business continuity with a 99.9 percent availability Service Level Agreement.
  • Micro Focus Server Automation customers can integrate on-premise software with DCA Premium SaaS to add reporting, dashboarding and analytics.
  • Compliance management enhancements with updated PCI and SOX compliance benchmarks.
