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.

IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
Dale Kim is the Director of Industry Solutions at MapR. His background includes a variety of technical and management roles at information technology companies. While his experience includes work with relational databases, much of his career pertains to non-relational data in the areas of search, content management, and NoSQL, and includes senior roles in technical marketing, sales engineering, and support engineering.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.

Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
