eIQnetworks’ SecureVue Awarded CIS Certification for Compliance Library

eIQnetworks, Inc., the only global provider of a unified situational awareness solution, today announced that SecureVue® has received certification from the Center for Internet Security (CIS) for eight critical Microsoft Windows® security benchmarks for its compliance library. SecureVue was awarded a series of secure, system-specific CIS configuration benchmark certifications, providing large corporate networks with comprehensive, detailed security control recommendations for security-hardened system configurations that help prevent complex cyber attacks. From CIS and DISA STIG to PCI and NIST 800-53 compliance modules, SecureVue offers an organization the best implementation of security best practices and protection of its IT infrastructure.

“eIQ customers continuously refer to the CIS benchmarks as the gold standard in configuration benchmarks and have expressed the importance of having them available within SecureVue,” commented Bryan Cote, director of product management at eIQnetworks. “Continuous configuration auditing is an essential part of true situational awareness, and customers not only rely on log and event information, but require the broadest range of IT configuration and network traffic information for security preparedness. With the addition of these certifications, eIQnetworks is further extending its lead with the breadth and completeness of its configuration audit and compliance library.”

eIQ’s SecureVue offers the industry’s most comprehensive solution for benchmark auditing and compliance reporting across a broad range of asset types, including Windows, UNIX® and Linux® operating systems, routers, switches, firewalls and other technologies to help organizations implement prescriptive configuration standards.

“The cyber challenges facing organizations continue to increase at astounding rates and the need for proactive prevention and protection is crucial,” said Rick Comeau, executive director of the CIS Security Benchmarks division. “We are pleased that eIQnetworks has made the commitment to obtain these rigorous CIS benchmark certifications. This will provide eIQnetworks’ customers the additional ability to assess their system configurations according to CIS’s consensus-based recommendations to help further strengthen their overall cyber security posture.”

eIQnetworks is hosting a webinar entitled, “Meeting the Challenge of Security Configuration Using CIS Benchmarks,” on Thursday, April 19, 2012, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., EDT with speakers John Linkous, vice president, chief security and compliance officer at eIQnetworks and Jamie Giroux, security specialist and current eIQnetworks customer.
