SteelCloud STIG Automation Software to be Utilized in DoD UAV Program
ConfigOS Software to Harden Drone Operating System Platform
Ashburn, Virginia – March 31, 2020 – SteelCloud LLC announced today that its ConfigOS STIG compliance software had been selected to automate STIG compliance for a DoD Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) program. This contract adds to the growing number of
that have chosen SteelCloud’s ConfigOS software to automate their security and compliance requirements.
“We are seeing a significant increase in our activity around weapon systems as the focus on securing these systems has heightened,” said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO. “Being network and domain-independent, and requiring no agents or clients, ConfigOS is uniquely suited to the DoD’s non-traditional computing platforms. We are excited to help another program get compliant and stay secure.”
During the COVID 19 crisis, SteelCloud has implemented best practices for social distancing and telework, as part of our Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP). SteelCloud’s personnel and systems are fully operational, during this crisis, to support its customers.
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 two minutes. Automated remediation rollback as well as comprehensive compliance reporting and STIG Viewer Checklist integration are provided. ConfigOS was designed to harden every CAT 1/2/3 STIG control around an application stack 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, CENTOS, 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. Learn more at https://www.steelcloud.com/configos-cybersecurity/.
