CIS Windows Certification

Hanover, MD, 06 January 2021

As a proud member of the CIS (Center for Internet Security) SecureSuite® program, Onyx Point is excited to announce that we now offer SIMP Windows Server baselines certified by CIS to enforce and remediate CIS Benchmarks™.

CIS Benchmarks™ are best practices endorsed by leading IT security vendors and governing bodies around the world. Over the past year, we have been working with CIS to test, validate, and certify our SIMP Windows Server 2019, 2016, and 2012 R2 baselines to not just allow assessment for compliance, but to also allow remediation that enforces compliance!

When you enforce compliance with SIMP, it will maintain that compliance over time, keeping your environment more secure and stable.

We are very excited to offer these new baselines to all of our SIMP Enterprise subscribers. Our partnership with CIS allows us to take Windows compliance enforcement to the next level!
