Installing the Web Portal

The Symantec Control Compliance Suite Web Portal server is hosted by a computer that also hosts the Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). The Web Portal lets you access the Policy Manager and the Response Assessment module of Symantec Control Compliance Suite.

The Symantec Control Compliance Suite Web Portal lets you do the following:

  • Distribute policy notifications to end users across the enterprise and track when users read and acknowledge the policies.

  • Request exceptions to policies.

  • Request exceptions from control points.

By default, the Web Portal uses integrated Windows security. If the user domain and the Web Portal domain have a trust relationship, the Web Portal relies on the existing user credentials. The user does not need to enter a name and password to access the Web Portal. If no trust relationship exists, the user is prompted for a name and a password.
