New Net Technologies NNT Change Tracker Enterprise v6.5

CIS Benchmark for CentOS Linux 6, v1.0.0, Level 2 Profile
CIS Benchmark for Microsoft Windows 8.1, v1.0.0, Level 1 Profile
CIS Benchmark for Microsoft Windows 8.1, v1.0.0, Level 1 + BitLocker Profile

This adds to the already impressive list of Security Software Certifications that NNT has been awarded over the past few months - see here for a full list of sample CIS Benchmark reports

Why is this important? The CIS Benchmarks are the Number 1 trusted source for system hardening and vulnerability assessment checklists. CIS Benchmarks are consensus-based, drawing on vulnerability intelligence directly from manufacturers such as Microsoft, VMWare, Oracle, SUSE and RedHat, combined with independent security researcher knowledge.

CIS Benchmarks provide prescriptive guidance for establishing a secure configuration posture for a wide range of platforms, databases, network devices and applications, detailing the rationale for the hardening guidance, the potential impact of implementing the prescribed measures and remediation steps if required.

NNT is unique in providing both reporting and monitoring templates for CIS Benchmarks, with real-time detection of configuration drift and automated 'closed-loop' analysis of changes against approved, planned changes.
