SteelCloud LLC, a STIG and CIS compliance automation software developer, announced today that the USPTO has awarded it patent 11,368,366 for “Group Policy Object update compliance and synchronization.”
This patent covers functionality delivered in SteelCloud’s ConfigOS compliance software suite. SteelCloud’s remediation automation identifies every control on every endpoint where the customer’s implementation of Microsoft’s Active Directory Group Policy Objects (GPOs) enforces non-compliant policies. In addition, GPO synchronization output includes reports, archives, and logs that can integrate with other applications such as Splunk, Xacta, and eMASS.
“Our experience has proven that it is virtually impossible for large organizations to manage compliance by using GPOs exclusively,” said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud Chief Operating Officer. “Our patented software identifies GPO defects that take endpoints out of compliance. ConfigOS automates GPO conflict synchronization allowing our customers to effectively flatten and simplify their implementation of Microsoft’s Active Directory while removing a significant barrier in maintaining STIG or CIS compliance.”
GPO conflict synchronization is available today, at no additional charge, to all ConfigOS customers.
