The 4FrontSecurity Assessment Manager is now part of Symantec's CCS Suite, called Response Assessment module (RAM). It helps organizations by building questionnaires that relate to security standards such as Sarbanes-Oxley, ISO, HIPAA, GLBA, and other compliance standards. It gives a graphical representation of user responses to questionnaires that are weighted with different severity colors to locate problem areas in an organization.
