CIS Benchmarks 

System Hardening and Vulnerability Management

How CimTrak helps with CIS Benchmarks

Integrated into CimTrak's Compliance Module, CIS Benchmarks are a best practice guide to secure configurations, vulnerability management, and system hardening, including using guidelines developed by CIS, DISA STIGs.  

CIS Benchmarks help configure operating systems, server software, cloud platforms, network devices, desktops, software, and more to safeguard against today's continuously evolving risk of cyber threats.  

CimTrak provides detailed alerts, reports and controls to:

  • Assess the current state of configurations
  • Provide steps necessary and correct any misconfiguration(s) or security vulnerabilities based on the recommended CIS Benchmarks
  • Alert if/when there are unexpected, unwanted or unauthorized changes to the "desired or correct state”.
  • Prevent change(s) to designated files and/or configurations
  • Allow exception-based rules to align with unique environments and security conditions
  • Remediate and roll-back to a previous known and trusted state if a benchmark has been compromised
