Xacta® is an IT and cyber risk management platform, designed by Telos, to help organizations meet the complex challenges of managing IT and cyber risk with intelligent workflow, automated control selection and assessment, and continuous compliance monitoring. Deployed at some of the world’s most security-conscious organizations, Xacta enables users to continuously manage their cyber risk and security compliance initiatives through the power of automation. Xacta administers the key elements of more than 100 leading regulations and policies for IT security compliance in government and commercial markets, including the NIST RMF, RMF for DoD IT, CNSS 1253, NIST CSF, and FedRAMP.
SteelCloud’s ConfigOS capabilities solve the Categorize/Identify, Selection, and Implementation components of RMF for technical assets. ConfigOS reviews an asset, determines which Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) are applicable, scans against the STIG requirements, identifies compliance indicators and automates remediation of findings. Meanwhile, Xacta incorporates and utilizes this information during the Assess and Authorize steps of the RMF and to initiate the Monitor step once Authorization to Operate (ATO) is achieved.
