SteelCloud Releases Automation for DISA’s New Windows 11 STIG
Compliance Automation Facilitates the Government’s Move to Windows 11.
SteelCloud LLC, a STIG and CIS compliance automation software developer, announced the availability of scanning and remediation automation support for the Windows 11 STIG just released by DISA, (Defense Information Systems Agency).
The new Windows 11 policy is the latest in SteelCloud’s ConfigOS family of Windows operating system and application STIG automation content. SteelCloud delivers the Windows 11 policy as a simple downloadable signed and encrypted XML package. Implementation of the new Windows 11 STIG policy into an existing ConfigOS system can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. This new STIG capability also takes full advantage of SteelCloud’s recently announced automation that can identify every control on every endpoint where the customer’s implementation of Microsoft’s Active Directory Group Policy Objects (GPOs) enforces non-compliant policies. Output options include data integration with other applications such as Splunk, Xacta, and eMASS.
“We are proud that we have been able to support this new important platform in almost real-time,” said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud Chief Operating Officer. “Windows 11 will be the next major OS upgrade for many of our enterprise customers and ConfigOS will certainly streamline this transition. As with all of our policy content, the Windows 11 STIG automation is provided to our customers at no additional charge.”
Concurrently with its STIG release, SteelCloud has also released Windows 11 CIS Benchmark automation that has been certified by the Center for Internet Security.
