SteelCloud Announces Partnership with CIS CyberMarket

SteelCloud LLC, a leading CIS compliance automation software developer, announced today their official partnership with CIS CyberMarket®, a collaborative purchasing program developed by the Center for Internet Security, that serves U.S. State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) government organizations, nonprofit entities, and public health and education institutions with cost-effective group procurement of industry-leading solutions to improve cybersecurity.

By becoming a CIS CyberMarket vendor, SteelCloud will offer its CIS Benchmarks implementation automation technology, ConfigOS®, to a well-established customer base of more than 16,000 public and nonprofit organizations spanning numerous industry verticals, including K-12, higher education, law enforcement and emergency services, public utilities, and thousands of government offices and organizations in states, counties, cities, and towns across the country.

SteelCloud’s ConfigOS CIS Benchmarks automation and remediation software turns weeks of hardening work into a simple one-hour task that eliminates time-consuming manual tasks, reduces system downtime, and enhances overall security. Taking only 2 minutes to install, users can be up and hardening after 2 hours of training without needing any specialized expertise. ConfigOS is currently implemented in hundreds of commercial and government organizations.

“We are seeing an increased focus on the standardized cyber foundation that the CIS Benchmarks represent to the entire spectrum of governmental organizations,” said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud Chief Operating Officer. “SteelCloud’s CIS automation solution makes the implementation of the CIS benchmarks a cost-effective reality for government customers using their existing staff.”

“CIS CyberMarket vendors, like SteelCloud, offer industry-leading solutions that are helping public sector organizations defend against cyber threats. Working together, we can greatly reduce cyber risk to these historically underserved, and increasingly targeted, organizations while promoting effective cybersecurity among the government institutions we all rely on,” said Gina Chapman, CIS Chief Operating Officer.

SteelCloud looks forward demonstrating ConfigOS to SLTT organizations at the upcoming Annual ISAC ConferenceJune 23-26 in Orlando, FL.
