There’s No S-CAP: Situational Awareness is the Future of Information Security
We’ve been waiting to be able to talk about this for a while, but today we’re delighted to be able to announce that our flagship situational awareness platform, SecureVue, has achieved validation for NIST SCAP (Security Content Automation Protocol) capabilities. Specifically, SecureVue has achieved validation as an “FDCC Scanner” and “Authenticated Configuration Scanner” under the NIST SCAP program. This capability allows SecureVue customers to directly download SCAP-based configuration content such as the FDCC, USGCB and DISA STIGs from content providers including NIST and DISA, and immediately assess the security configurations of their mission-critical infrastructure to these vital – and mandatory – security standards. SCAP validation adds to SecureVue’s already formidable set of tools to assist with federal certification and accreditation (C&A) efforts such as DIACAP, DIARMF and FISMA.
Nithya Rachamadugu, director, Security Evaluation Laboratory (SEL) and Cryptographic Equipment Assessment Laboratory (CEAL) at CygnaCom commented, “SCAP is a suite of vulnerability management standards that enable standardization and automation of vulnerability management, measurement and technical policy compliance. Continuously evolving, SCAP enables federal government agencies to implement security products that are compliant with current SCAP guidelines. We are delighted to announce that we have certified eIQnetworks’ SecureVue as SCAP validated.”
