SteelCloud software to secure USAF simulator
SteelCloud has received a license award for its ConfigOS software to be used to automate Security Technical Implementation Guides compliance and remediation for a US Air Force simulator programme, the company announced on 30 January.
The software was licensed to strengthen the Microsoft Windows application stacks exclusive to this simulator programme and to accelerate risk management framework accreditation and authorisation to operate deliverables. The ConfigOS software was licensed following a successful trial, to harden endpoint infrastructure and automate RMF accreditation activities.
Brian Hajost, president and CEO, SteelCloud, said: ‘We are seeing an increased recognition, across the DoD, in the imperative of focusing on securing the nation's weapons systems and tactical infrastructures.
‘ConfigOS addresses the challenges of implementing security automation technology in the most difficult air-gapped, classified environments. This simulator programme represents just one of several weapon system security projects that we are addressing with our ConfigOS software.’
