Inspect configuration settings to verify that security features are implemented in insecure services and protocols |
Ensuring that all insecure services and protocols are adequately secured with appropriate security features makes it more difficult for attackers to compromise the endpoints on the network. For example, some earlier implementations of TLS are not secure and services using TLS must be reconfigured to use the most recent protocols.
