Ashburn, Virginia – January 19, 2023 – SteelCloud LLC, a leading STIG and CIS cyber compliance software developer, announced today its ConfigOS technology has been licensed to a major U.S. energy company to secure nuclear power critical assets.
SteelCloud’s software will be used to harden assets using the STIG (Security Technical Implementation Guide) system-level controls. The initial implementation will be deployed to support the NIST security framework. The ConfigOS agent-less architecture provides unique benefits to critical infrastructure operators because it performs its cyber work without the need to load software on the assets that it secures.
According to Gartner, “attacks on organizations in critical infrastructure sectors have increased dramatically, from less than 10 in 2013 to almost 400 in 2020 — a 3,900% change.” Gartner also predicts that by 2025, “30% of critical infrastructure organizations will experience a security breach that will result in the halting of an operations- or mission-critical cyber-physical system.”
“Protecting critical infrastructure is increasingly becoming a top priority for government regulators due to the potential impact of potential breaches, said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud Chief Operating Officer. “Our years of experience in classified environments and weapon systems, positions us to be a valuable resource to security-focused utility companies. Our ConfigOS automation software effectively and efficiently, gets and keeps, organizations compliant with the industry-standard STIG controls and CIS Benchmarks.”
