SteelCloud software automates eMASS and Splunk data integration


ConfigOS Accelerates RMF with Automated Bulk Checklist Generation

ASHBURN, Va., April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SteelCloud LLC, a leading developer of STIG and CIS compliance automation software, today announced the availability of a new version of its ConfigOS software that creates STIG Viewer checklists in bulk and integrates human and machine controls into data flows for eMASS and Splunk.

Over the past year, SteelCloud has worked with its military and DISA customers to reimagine the tedious effort required to complete and load STIG Viewer Checklist data into eMASS. This new feature automates the integration of documentation, manual, and control exceptions with machine controls to create fully populated checklists in bulk. SteelCloud’s ConfigOS software automates the production of thousands of completed checklists, for an entire infrastructure, with just a few keystrokes. Additionally, ConfigOS consolidates all checklist data, for thousands of systems and dozens of STIG policies, into a single ARF and ASR file for easy import into eMASS. Additionally, ConfigOS automatically integrates manual controls from the STIG Viewer Checklist into its data feeds for Splunk or the customer’s SIEM of choice. For many customers, SteelCloud’s ConfigOS provides the first COTS application capable of visualizing manual controls compliance data from a SIEM dashboard.

“This new automation is a game-changer for our DoD customers looking to improve their RMF processes,” said Brian Hajost, COO of SteelCloud. “Our software saves over 95% of the effort needed to complete checklists and load eMASS, and it automates this process in near real-time, keeping the environment, checklists, eMASS and SIEM in sync. Our integrated output allows our customers to see, for the first time, 100% of the information from the STIG Viewer checklist in a SIEM dashboard.”

SteelCloud is providing this new eMASS automation and Splunk integration capability as a free enhancement to all customers in ConfigOS version 2.8.4.
