ConfigOS to Accelerate RMF Accreditation Across Enterprise and AWS Cloud Endpoints
ASHBURN, Va., Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — SteelCloud LLC announced today that it has received a GSA Schedule 70 contract for ConfigOS, its patented STIG remediation software, from a component of the U.S. Navy. ConfigOS will be deployed to automate STIG remediation and support RMF (Risk Management Framework) accreditation for thousands of endpoints across the customer’s internal and AWS infrastructures.
“RMF poses significant cost and manpower challenges to the DoD and its mission partners” said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO. “ConfigOS is simple to install and support and provides solid remediation results on day one. Not only does our software pay for itself on first use, but just as important, ConfigOS dramatically increases IT agility by eliminating months of manual labor out of the RMF accreditation process.”
ConfigOS is implemented in classified and tactical environments, development environments, disconnected labs, and the AWS cloud. ConfigOS is client-less technology, requiring no software agents. ConfigOS scans endpoint systems for hundreds of STIG controls in under 60 seconds and then remediates them in under 90 seconds. Automated remediation rollback as well as comprehensive compliance reporting and XCCDF output are provided. ConfigOS FastPathäwas designed to automate the hardening STIG controls around an application baseline in 60 minutes, versus weeks or months. ConfigOS incorporates policy waivers to ensure flawless automated STIG remediation and compliance reporting.
ConfigOS addresses Microsoft workstation and server operating systems together with environment components such as IIS, IE, Chrome, and all of the Microsoft Office components including Office 2016. Its OnePassäarchitecture allows ConfigOS to remediate all user profiles in a single pass, providing significant benefits when transitioning to Windows 10. Additionally, the same instance of ConfigOS can also address Red Hat and other versions of Linux.
