System Hardening

By default nothing is Secure

What is system hardening?

The problem with default configurations

By default almost all systems are insecure. For instance, a Windows 10 operating system has well over 100 hundred settings that can be modified to improve its security. The same concept applies for routers, switches, printers, and servers.

Meet Compliance Requirements:

By hardening your systems you can also meet various cybersecurity compliance requirements from frameworks such as ISO/IEC 27001 and NIST SP 800-171. Creating, documenting, and implementing secure baseline configurations (hardening systems) is one of the pillars of a serious cybersecurity program.

How we can help?

Desired Outcomes can create, document, and deploy secure baseline configurations for your IT systems in accordance with DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides or with the Center for Internet Security’s benchmarks.
