White Paper: eMASS Automation – The Search for a Solution to Unite and Automate Security Compliance Data
eMASS, or the Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service, was developed by the DoD, in part, as a repository that unites technical/machine data generated from endpoint scans with the human/non-technical data documented by security/IA personnel.
Imagine a 1,000 workstation environment that quickly generates 10,000 individual checklist files. eMASS functions as a repository that unites technical/machine data generated from endpoint scans with the human/non-technical data documented by security/IA personnel. Navigating the challenges of the STIG Viewer Checklist can be cumbersome using the traditional hand-created pre-populated checklists for each policy with the appropriate non-technical data together with POAM/waiver information.
How unifying eMASS and SIEM Data provides a unified view and understanding it’s time for something new.
Although eMASS currently supports more advanced ways to ingest information through API or ARF/ASR file interfaces, two challenges remain – how to access and integrate the human/non-technical data for eMASS and efficiently create fully-populated checklists required outside of eMASS. What if this collective data feed could be combined with the organization’s SIEM to represent the whole security compliance picture – not just the partial picture represented only scan data.
Envisioning Something New – Integrating CKL, eMASS, and SIEM Data
Learn how to merge the CKL and machine data to create bulk checklists, consolidated ARF/ASR eMASS files, and or consolidated JSON files to populate our DashView Splunk dashboard or the customer’s chosen SIEM and always be up to date with the complete security compliance picture.
Our White Paper, eMASS Automation, discusses how to ensure a real-time view of security and compliance with SteelCloud’s software for easy synchronization of massive numbers of checklist files, eMASS data, and SIEM dashboards-everything in sync, everything up to date.
