Secure Your IT Infrastructure Through STIGS and CIS Benchmarks
Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) are a set of configuration standards for securing protocols within networks, configuration settings for servers and computers, and logical designs to enhance overall security. When implemented, these guides enhance security for software, hardware, and physical and logical architectures to further reduce vulnerabilities, known and unknown.
Federal Information and Security Management Act (FISMA) compliance and Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) have been the catalyst for growth in adoption of STIGs. Tego encourages adoption of STIGs for every organization, not just those operating in the federal ecosystem.
Tego favors the use of CIS Benchmarks to accomplish the implementation of STIGs. The Center for Information Security (CIS) provides CIS Benchmarks as guidelines to help properly secure your infrastructure. CIS Benchmarks were developed and maintained by cybersecurity professionals and subject matter experts around the world through a consensus-based process. These security configuration guidelines are recognized by many regulatory frameworks including: SOX, IRS, HIPAA, PCI, and CMMC.
The Tego Approach
In the face of ballooning zero-day and post-disclosure /pre-patch vulnerabilities , Tego understands the importance of being prepared for inevitable exploits to occur before mitigation steps and patches are available. Additionally, Tego understands that the best way to be prepared is to implement best practice configurations for your environment. System, software and network configuration alignment with STIGs/CIS Benchmarks is the single best way to harden the IT environment in anticipation of the unknown. Tego offers an array of services to evaluate the environment for gaps in best practice configuration and to advise customers on the most effective way to implement them.
