After Knowledge17, ServiceNow has produced a new ServiceNow Store infographic with the latest stats on customers and app installs, incorporated the new Lightspeed Enterprise look and feel, and sliced and diced some shiny new (and mainstay top apps) app icons to match the five ServiceNow solutions (IT, Customer Service, HR, Security, and Business Apps).
Event management allows IT operation administrators to combine multiple event sources from monitoring tools such as Icinga and Nagios into a single management console. Event management provides options for configuring and managing events, and for integrating with other ServiceNow features such as incident, change, and task management, and CMDB and services management.
With Security Incident Response (SIR), track the progress of security incidents from initial analysis to containment, eradication, and recovery.
There are multiple approaches to separating data and process within ServiceNow. This article discusses how to choose the best option for your business requirements.
Orchestration automates simple or complex multi-system tasks on remote servers that are normally done manually. An Orchestration process can cross all management disciplines and interact with all types of infrastructure elements, such as applications, databases, and hardware. Orchestration combines the ServiceNow graphical workflow with the MID Server to run Orchestration-specific workflow activities.
This SNC Access Control plugin (com.snc.snc_access_control) enables customers to control which ServiceNow employees may access their instance, and when. When the plugin is first activated, ServiceNow employees cannot log into the customer's instance. Any currently logged-in ServiceNow employees remain logged in. The customer creates records in the SNC Access Control table that grant access to specific SNC employees or all employees.
The ServiceNow Discovery application finds computers and other devices connected to an enterprise's network. When Discovery finds a computer or device, it explores the device's configuration, provisioning, and current status and updates the CMDB accordingly. On computer systems, Discovery also identifies the software that is running and any TCP connections between computer systems. Discovery creates all the relationships between computer systems (such as an application on one server that uses a database on another server).
Security teams today are inundated with alerts and information from a growing number of siloed point solutions. In parallel, attacks via both known and unknown vulnerabilities continuously target critical business services, IT infrastructure, and users. These incidents and vulnerabilities lack business context, making it difficult to know which ones pose the greatest threat to the organization. Furthermore, manual processes and cross-team handoffs hinder the security team’s ability to efficiently respond to attacks or assess and remediate vulnerabilities.
The ServiceNow Cloud Provisioning application facilitates the provisioning and management of virtual machines (VM) within a company's infrastructure. Cloud provisioning delivers the key benefits of private (VMware) and public (Amazon EC2) virtual machine management in a single application that is fully integrated with ServiceNow.
Is your business secure? It’s a straightforward question that can be difficult to answer. Most organizations today use a variety of different security products, often from different vendors, that don’t communicate with each other. These products generate thousands of notifications and alerts—far more than your security team can investigate. As a result, it’s possible for issues to be missed simply because they were hidden amid the noise.
