CIS SecureSuite® Benefits


With CIS SecureSuite Members get access to multiple cybersecurity resources including our CIS-CAT Pro configuration assessment tool, CIS Build Kits, full-format CIS Benchmarks, and more.


CIS-CAT Pro, a SCAP-validated tool with Assessor and Dashboard components, combines the powerful security guidance of the CIS Controls and CIS Benchmarks into a single assessment tool. Leveraging the CIS-CAT Pro Dashboard component, users can view conformance to best practices and improve compliance scores over time.

CIS-CAT Pro Assessor scans against a target system's configuration settings and reports the system's compliance to the corresponding CIS Benchmark (85+ CIS Benchmarks available). Scans are typically completed in just a few minutes, saving users hours of tedious manual configuration review

  • Select CIS Benchmarks annotated with CIS Controls mappings
  • Multiple reporting formats (Microsoft Excel, HTML, etc.) with easy-to-view remediation steps for noncompliant settings
  • SCAP-validated tool that saves hours on configuration review

CIS-CAT Pro Dashboard consumes assessment reports and shows system(s) compliance to the CIS Benchmarks over a period of time.

  • CIS Controls view for annotated CIS Benchmark content
