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.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
