Move to RMF Accelerates Demand for ConfigOS STIG Compliance Software

SteelCloud Delivers Mission-Focused Solution to Support Streamlined Accreditation

ASHBURN, Va., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SteelCloud LLC announced today that it experienced unprecedented demand for its STIG remediation software in the 2nd half of 2016, primarily from Department of Defense mission partners moving to RMF (Risk Management Framework).  In addition to its typical DoD and large integrator customers, new demand for ConfigOS has increased amongst technology suppliers, software vendors, and cloud SAS solution providers looking for the STIG 'easy button.'

"Customers come to us with problems that typically revolve around resource requirements, cost constraints, and ultimately time constraints, that render the traditional manual approach to IA to be inadequate" said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO.  "The dramatic increase in the number of systems that now have to go through the RMF accreditation process has amplified the need with every mission partner to automate and reduce costs.  Our customers appreciate that ConfigOS is simple to install and support and provides concrete results - the very first day."

ConfigOS is currently implemented in classified environments, tactical programs, disconnected labs, and the AWS commercial 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 harden every CAT 1/2/3 STIG control around an application baseline in 60 minutes - typically eliminating weeks or months from the accreditation timeline.  ConfigOS automates the incorporation of documented 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.

To receive more information on ConfigOS, please contact SteelCloud at [email protected].  Video demonstrations of ConfigOS Windows and Linux STIG remediation are available on the Company's website, www.steelcloud.com, under the "Demos" tab.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
