  • Without this resource, the hardening of our devices would have taken a lot longer and required many meetings between IT and Security to debate which configuration settings to change and the impact they could have. The CIS Benchmarks™ provided the necessary information to alleviate many of the fears IT may have had with changing specific settings.
