BelSecure – Configuration based Security


The BelSecure Module automatically does a vulnerability assessment of your IT systems, checks security policies, configuration settings, and discovers other information about the host such as anti-virus status, application versions, security patches, user accounts and more. The policy settings are automatically compared with consensus benchmarks from NIST (USGCB and FDCC) and Center for Internet Security (CIS), which allow IT managers to automatically determine the security status of their IT assets in advance of an attack.

All of this vulnerability and configuration data is automatically collected, on a daily basis, in BelSecure’s central repository, or CMDB. This is the best approach for configuration based security.

Why are configurations important for IT security?

Many current threats, including Advanced Persistent Threats, are not stopped by perimeter security systems such as firewall and anti-virus systems. Setting and monitoring configurations based on consensus benchmarks is a critical step because this is a pro-active way to avoid many successful attacks.
