Creating and managing audits

McAfee Policy Auditor allows you to create audits based on benchmarks and assign them to run on systems.

McAfee Policy Auditor evaluates systems against independent standards that are developed by government agencies and private industry. It can also evaluate systems against standards you create (using Benchmarks that you create).

You can create audits from a McAfee-supplied selection of predefined benchmarks established by government and industry such as SOX, HIPAA, PCI, and FISMA. You can also create audits based on third-party benchmarks or benchmarks that you create yourself.

Audits return results that include a score allowing you to determine how well a system complies with the rules in the benchmark.
