Simplifying the remediation process

After you evaluate the assets against standards, you get the evaluation results and the risk score. You can now identify the assets in the organization that are compliant with the set guidelines. Control Compliance Suite lets you create baselines based on the evaluation results. The baselines make it easier to compare the assets.
