verinice helps you to build and operate your management system for information security (ISMS). Whether you base it on ISO 27001, BSI IT Baseline Protection, IDW PS 330 or another standard: verinice supports you in your daily work as a CISO or IT Security Officer.
All relevant standards are either already integrated in the tool or can be easily imported. All data is stored in an object model that is tailored to the requirements of information security and is dynamically expandable. This makes your data the basis for a sustainable IS process.
Eclipse Rich Client Platform
verinice is a Java application. The graphical surface is implemented with the Rich Client Platform (RCP). This makes verinice platform independent while using the native GUI elements of the operating system.
Also part of the Eclipse platform is the BIRT Report Designer. All verinice reports can be customized – and you’re able to design completely new reports which can be exported as PDF, HTML or Excel (CSV) file.
Dynamic Object Model (HitroUI)
The HitroUI Framework is a part of verinice. A simple XML-file defines all fields and field types which appear in the application. So the database data and all displayed forms are generated dynamically.
This dynamic object model allows you to define additional data fields for specific objects as needed or to remove unneeded fields from the standard forms. That is how you can adapt verinice to your working methods and the requirements of your organization.
By using the object-relational mapper Hibernate, verinice is able to connect with different database systems. The supported database systems are:
- Apache Derby
- Oracle DB
verinice uses a three-tier architecture where independent software modules are implemented. A centralized database and an application server provide data to the client.
The verinice.PRO application server complements the pure client with a centralized IS repository hosted in your company. It enables multiple people to work on one ISMS - even across different locations.
