CIS-CAT® Pro

A powerful tool for automating CIS Benchmark assessment and reporting

The CIS Benchmarks are a powerful set of best practices to help your organization ensure its IT systems, software, networks, and cloud infrastructure are securely configured. Testing those configurations can be a labor-intensive process – and that can be a challenge for many organizations.
