Vendors/Products Guardian Digital, Inc., the world's premier provider of open source security solutions, today announced the launch of a new initiative aimed at helping companies assess their network-readiness in meeting Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) legislation requirements. With the first deadline of November 15th fast approaching, Guardian Digital is seeking to raise awareness among corporate IT administrators as to the specific network security requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley act through its "Compliance-Readiness Initiative." . . . Guardian Digital, Inc., the world's premier provider of open source security solutions, today announced the launch of a new initiative aimed at helping companies assess their network-readiness in meeting Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) legislation requirements. With the first deadline of November 15th fast approaching, Guardian Digital is seeking to raise awareness among corporate IT administrators as to the specific network security requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley act through its "Compliance-Readiness Initiative." Although this first compliance deadline applies only to companies with market capitalization of more than $75 million, the second deadline of July 15, 2005 will be far-reaching, requiring compliance from all publicly traded firms, private companies with public debt in the United States, and qualifying foreign organizations.

Necessitated by the rampant accounting scandals of the late 1990s, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 establishes new standards of conduct regarding the maintenance and preservation of electronic and paper records as well as the behavior and accountability of corporate executives, auditors, and employees. In regard to IT departments specifically, the act requires changes to internal policies and procedures designed to promote greater levels of network security and ensure the integrity of all information contained on the network. Leveraging the merits of open source architecture and customized engineered security, Guardian Digital's operating platform, EnGarde Secure Linux, and its accompanying suite of applications provide the secure infrastructure companies need to be Sarbanes-Oxley compliant. The company's "Compliance-Readiness Initiative" will help network administrators better understand where their security vulnerabilities lie via a comprehensive assessment with a qualified Guardian Digital security engineer.
