EiQ Networks Launches SecureVue STIG Profiler To Protect Against Cyber Attacks

Posted on

Acton, Mass.

EiQ Networks, a pioneer in continuous security intelligence, risk and compliance solutions, launched SecureVue STIG Profiler, a free software solution that plays a critical role in STIG compliance monitoring. The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) issues Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) that detail the specific configurations settings that must be implemented for various networked devices and applications. Department of Defense agencies and contractors supporting DoD are required to implement the configurations standards outlined in the STIGs in an effort to better secure networks and prevent cyber attacks.

A system can have multiple STIGs that apply to it based upon the operating system and applications installed. One of the more time consuming aspects with the implementation of the STIGs is knowing what STIGs apply to any given system. Up until today this has been a very manual and time consuming process. The SecureVue STIG Profiler automates this part of the STIG process and in turn, provides detailed information regarding what STIGs apply to a system based upon the software installed.



“Government agencies spend quite a bit of time just understanding what STIGs apply to all of the systems on their network,” said Don Byrne, VP - Federal Sales, EiQ Networks. “The STIG Profiler will automate the assessment process and quickly provide a detailed report regarding which STIGs do in fact apply to a system. It’s all automated where in the past it required a manual inspection.”



“Used in conjunction with EIQ’s flagship product SecureVue, agencies and integrators can take it a step further and actually automate the STIG checks on systems to know whether those systems are configured in accordance with the STIGs. This provides agencies with a key component required within 800-53A for continuous assessments,” added Byrne.



The STIG Profiler quickly identifies all of the nodes on the network, and collects the detailed asset information from those systems and then provide a detailed report outlining what STIGs apply. All this is done without the need to deploy a client or agent.

EIQ’s SecureVue, a continuous information assurance platform that combines audit log management and SIEM capabilities with a powerful configuration auditing solution, has long served as a cybersecurity solution for federal agencies and the private sector.
