BackBox Releases CIS Benchmark Automations
March 2023 by Marc Jacob
BackBox has released a series of Compliance Automation Templates based on the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks.
The BackBox Network Automation Platform includes a library of over 2,000 pre-built automations for network and security devices. This week new automations that focus on key device types from Check Point were added to the library, each validating that a specific configuration meets CIS standards, and automatically remediating those that do not.
Once compliance with the CIS Benchmark is confirmed, these automations can be run on a schedule and notify network administrators when configs begin to drift out of compliance. With custom automations, the BackBox platform will enable this same approach for any configuration compliance need.
BackBox adds new pre-built automations every month, many of which are specifically oriented around mitigating the increased cybercrime activity the company has seen related to network infrastructure vulnerabilities and breaches.
These templates are available to all BackBox customers through the Automation Library. Users can load them via API or file import from the UI, without updating to a new version of BackBox.
In addition to Check Point, the company will be releasing updated CIS Compliance Automation Templates for Cisco, F5, Fortinet, Palo Alto, and Juniper Networks.
