Inspect the common security parameters to verify that they are set per security standards |
System configuration standards and related processes should specifically address security settings and parameters that have known security implications for each type of system in use. Action1 provides a system hardening framework that verifies security settings based on baselines and recommendations developed by CIS (Center for Internet Security). This query shows the status of system configuration for all managed endpoints and allows you to provide compliance with this section of PCI DSS.
Sign-up for Action1 Free Edition to receive real-time alerts and view instant data from your endpoints, such as alert on 2.2.4.c: Common Security Parameters created, deleted or modified or run live or scheduled queries with the ability to export to CSV or Excel. Action1 Endpoint Security Platform is entirely SaaS, with online web interface (no management tools to install) and it has zero cost for basic functionality. Running in the Cloud, Action1 discovers all of your endpoints in seconds and you can query your entire network in plain English.
