ConfigOS Software to Automate STIG Remediation for over 30k Endpoints
ASHBURN, Va., Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — SteelCloud LLC announced today that it has received an enterprise license award for ConfigOS from a DoD combatant command component. The company’s patented STIG remediation and compliance software was licensed to address the entire population of systems within the command, totaling over 30,000 Windows servers, workstations, and Linux endpoints.
“Over the last year we have made major advances in enhancing our ConfigOS STIG remediation software to meet the STIG and RMF automation requirements for major DoD deployments,” said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO. “ConfigOS now delivers new functionality that simplifies STIG Viewer integration and streamlines the management of AD/GPO. We are also seeing our customers beginning to focus on using ConfigOS to automate the implementation security policy compliance into the entire DevOps lifecycle – from development through RMF accreditation to production support.”
The ConfigOS software was delivered last month with the latest STIG policy updates. A new enterprise reporting module is planned for delivery this month.
ConfigOS is currently implemented in classified and unclassified environments, tactical and weapon system programs, disconnected labs, and the commercial cloud. ConfigOS is client-less technology, requiring no software agents. ConfigOS scans endpoint systems and remediates hundreds of STIG controls in under 90 seconds. Automated remediation rollback as well as comprehensive compliance reporting and STIG Viewer Checklist output are provided. ConfigOS was designed to harden every CAT 1/2/3 STIG control around an application baseline in about 60 minutes – typically eliminating weeks or months from the RMF accreditation timeline. ConfigOS addresses Microsoft Windows workstation and server operating systems, SQL Server, IIS, IE, Chrome, and all of the Microsoft Office components. The same instance of ConfigOS addresses Red Hat 5/6/7, SUSE, Ubuntu, and Oracle Linux. ConfigOS content includes over 10,000 STIG and CIS controls. New functionality in Command Center includes a patent-pending capability for Active Directory GPO Conflict Resolution.
