Acton, Mass., June 27, 2012 - eIQnetworks, Inc., the only global provider of a unified situational awareness solution, today announced that eIQ’s SecureVue® has received Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) certification from the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST). SecureVue customers can leverage the latest SCAP policies and content to streamline and automate DISA STIG compliance and meet continuous monitoring requirements mandated by NIST 800-53, FDCC, USGCB and DIACAP. Federal customers who have been using SecureVue for DISA STIG auditing automation are realizing up to 90% cost savings.
A U.S. government program, SCAP validation automates and provides standardization for the implementation and verification of information system security controls. SecureVue was validated as an FDCC scanner and authenticated configuration scanner by CygnaCom Solutions, Inc., an accredited, independent testing laboratory based in McLean, VA. In addition to SCAP, SecureVue has a number of other certifications including Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL), FIPS 140-2, Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) and others, thus providing the peace of mind for federal customers to use this technology within their networks.
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.”
eIQ’s SecureVue is the only situational awareness platform that collects, analyzes, correlates and reports on all security and compliance data – including information from existing technology solutions already in place – and delivers a unified view of an organization’s security, risk and compliance posture – all from a single console.
