ASHBURN, Va., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SteelCloud LLC announced today the release of the latest version of ConfigOS, its patented software that accelerates the STIG-compliance tasks required for RMF (Risk Management Framework) accreditation. RMF transforms the traditional Certification & Accreditation process. To address increased cyber threats, there is an urgency within the DoD to move to this new standard that integrates information security and risk management.
ConfigOS FastPath is a software process that allows the user to harden every CAT 1/2/3 STIG control around an application environment in typically 60 minutes - versus days, weeks, or months when done manually. Within an hour, the customer will have a fully documented baseline signature that includes any required STIG waivers. FastPath addresses all Microsoft modern workstation and server operating systems along with other Windows environment components such as IIS, IE, Chrome, .NET, and all of the individual Microsoft Office components. Additionally, ConfigOS addresses STIG requirements for Red Hat, CentOS, and SUSE Linux. New capabilities have been added to ConfigOS to allow it to remediate all user profiles on a target system in a single pass in order to enhance the DoD's transition to Windows 10.
"We have seen substantial new demand from customers looking for automation tools to accelerate the RMF accreditation process," said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO. "Based on customer input, we have significantly enhanced ConfigOS to streamline the STIG hardening effort - savings of weeks, if not months of time and effort necessary to get through RMF accreditation. Customers are now telling us that automating STIGs with ConfigOS is the only way to address RMF compliance within their time and budget constraints."
ConfigOS is client-less technology, requiring that no software agents be loaded on endpoints. ConfigOS scans endpoint systems for hundreds of STIG controls in under 60 seconds and remediates endpoints in under 90 seconds. Automated remediation rollback as well as comprehensive compliance reporting and XCCDF output are provided by the tool. ConfigOS addresses a wide range of use cases and is currently implemented in classified environments, tactical programs, disconnected labs, and the commercial cloud.

Video demonstrations of ConfigOS Windows and Linux STIG remediation are available on the Company's website, www.steelcloud.com, under the "Demos" tab.
