Automate Your CIS Compliance with Runecast Analyzer

About CIS Compliance

The Center for Internet Security (CIS) is a non-profit organization focused on improving public and private sector cybersecurity readiness and response. The CIS Critical Security Controls (CSC) are a recommended set of actions for cyber defense that provide specific and actionable ways to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous attacks. A principal benefit of the controls is that they prioritize and focus a smaller number of actions with high pay-off results.

The CIS Benchmarks, also known as CIS Security Standards, comprise 140+ configuration guidelines for various technology groups to safeguard systems against today’s evolving cyber threats. The process of checking for compliance within your hybrid and multi-cloud environments can be arduous and costly, and any kind of manual checks are subject to human error.
