Automatically Fix Server Security Weaknesses with NNT

This Educational Moment will be on the topic of Configuration Policy Remediation. With NNT's latest Threat Mitigation Kits, organizations are equipped with the necessary configuration & vulnerability checklists, which NNT further automates to automatically fix any weaknesses identified within your systems.

NNT's Change Tracker Gen7 combines best practice system configuration policies such as CIS system hardening templates with automated remediation to ensure systems remain secure and compliant at all times. In addition, NNT provides remediation kits to protect against specific types of threats such as Ransomware.

Whether you're interested in partner training, customer training, or simply on the market for data security and compliance solutions, we encourage everyone to watch the video!

Key Questions Regarding Server Hardening for security and compliance

Which settings need to be set and which are optional?

What are the implications in terms of user experience and application function if security settings are enabled?

Once you have determined the right security policy for your estate, how do you actually apply the necessary secure configuration, and how do you do it in bulk for your entire IT estate?

This example shows the Group Policy for Outlook 2013 – over 300 settings with decisions to be made.

But you would also need to configure these for all other desktop apps, and for the desktop OS too. Then make sure all systems were configured to be in compliance with the hardened build standard. And then make sure they stayed that way, even on 24/7 servers that cannot be re-booted or reconfigured during key operational hours.

Introducing the NNT Configuration Remediation Kit

Introducing the NNT Configuration Remediation Kit

NNT, in conjunction with The Center for Internet Security (CIS), provide a comprehensive suite of system hardening templates based on absolute best practices.

These can be leveraged to ensure all of your systems (workstations included) retain the most appropriate checks designed to harden your environment and protect from Ransomware, exactly as your Auditor will be encouraging you to do for compliance.

NNT’s is an Certified CIS Vendor and as such we are able to automate and control the provision of all relevant hardening standards including your Windows and Linux Server platforms. Within minutes, a full vulnerability assessment can be performed against your network devices, server platforms and user workstations, including the applications being used. Full remediation guidance is provided to make corrective action a straightforward task.

NNT can also provide both Server Configuration Remediation, and Ransomware Mitigation Kits, comprising the necessary automated vulnerability checks and also the Group Policy/Puppet templates to automatically fix any weaknesses identified.

Best of all, these layers of defense against all security threats are also backed up with the fastest-available, real time system integrity and change control detection technology to further ensure that, if the unthinkable happens and you do fall victim to an attack, any suspicious changes or activity is immediately brought to your attention before major damage can be perpetrated.

The result? Systems hardened and protected against security threats, but also with continuous 24/7 protection to ensure that any configuration drift is reported, and any suspicious - potentially breach – activity is detected in real-time.

You cant always stop the breach, so make sure you can always spot the breach

Compliance? You’re already there!

Compliance? You’re already there!

Coming back to Compliance, what’s cool is that the same process we just described is identical to the process needed for any GRC standard – determining, applying and maintaining a hardened build standard is at the core of all compliance programs.

The same approach can be used within Gen 7 to analyse, test and maintain compliance, with expert input from the Center for Internet Security. And now with the NNT Remediation Kits, CIS Hardened Build standards can even be automatically applied to your Windows and Linux estates.
