Configure and apply hardening rules in minutes with Ubuntu CIS Benchmark tooling

7 Comments



CIS benchmark has hundreds of configuration recommendations, so hardening a system manually can be very tedious. To drastically improve this process for enterprises, Canonical has made CIS automation tooling available to its Ubuntu Advantage for Infrastructure customers and Ubuntu Pro users on the public cloud (Azure, AWS).

The compliance tooling has two objectives: it lets our customers harden their Ubuntu systems effortlessly and then quickly audit those systems against the published CIS Ubuntu benchmarks. The SCAP content for audit tooling that scans the system for compliance is CIS certified.
