The Center of Internet Security (CIS) is a non-for-profit organization that develops their own Configuration Policy Benchmarks, or CIS benchmarks, that allow organizations to improve their security and compliance programs and posture. This initiative aims to create community developed security configuration baselines, or CIS benchmarks, for IT and Security products that are commonly found throughout organizations.
Use InsightVM, Rapid7's vulnerability risk management solution, to easily and automatically check the settings on all the assets in your organization to determine their overall level of compliance to CIS benchmarks in one unified view.
InsightVM scans all of your assets for the overall level of compliance against CIS benchmarks and policies. You can use InsightVM to determine the overall level of compliance across the organization for each CIS benchmark that you are interested in via pre-built scan templates, or with the Custom Policy Builder capability. Custom Policy Builder enables you to create, modify, and augment common benchmarks like CIS based on the unique needs of your IT environment.
CIS offers benchmarks on best practices for the secure configuration of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Kubernetes. When using cloud or Kubernetes services, security is a shared responsibility between the cloud service provider and the customer. You as the customer are responsible for configuring and using cloud services in a way that is secure, and the CIS benchmarks provide a framework for how to do this.
DivvyCloud enables you to automate compliance with CIS benchmarks. DivvyCloud provides dozens of out-of-the-box policies as part of our CIS compliances pack that map back to specific directives within CIS benchmarks. For example, DivvyCloud’s policy “Encryption Key Not Supporting Key Rotation” supports compliance with the “Logging 2.8” directive in the CIS Amazon Web Services Benchmark. You can immediately use the CIS compliance packs to identify and remediate policy violations in real time.
We love to give you options.
