(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 30 November 2012
Release date- 29112012 - San Francisco, CA- nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management solutions, today announced the availability of the market's first Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) 1.2 draft compliant scanner in Configuration Compliance Manager (CCM).
SCAP combines a number of open standards and is designed to enable automated vulnerability management, measurement, and policy compliance evaluation. SCAP 1.2 adds a number of new checklists including asset identification and asset reporting formats, as well as the Common Configuration Scoring System. It also includes a digital trust model for securing reports and checklists.
nCircle CCM provides the most comprehensive, agentless configuration compliance solution for benchmark content available in SCAP format. Unlike other solutions, CCM processes SCAP content natively and does not require a converter, dramatically reducing errors and the time needed to process SCAP content.
nCircle CCM automates configuration auditing, change monitoring and configuration compliance processes, providing government agencies and contractors with the industry's clearest picture of IT system configurations and the compliance impact of configuration changes. SCAP scan results can be exported in XML and HTML.
'nCircle has always been a pioneer in the evolution of security standards, and our products are first in line to be certified SCAP 1.2 compliant,' said Tim 'TK' Keanini, chief research officer for nCircle. 'CCM helps our federal customers automate configuration compliance and makes SCAP 1.2 compliance much easier.'
nCircle is a long-standing supporter of federal security standards initiatives and has invested heavily in the development of open security standards used extensively throughout the federal government. Keanini has been actively involved in the development of Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP), Common Configuration and Enumeration (CCE), Common Platform Enumeration (CPE), Common Vulnerability Enumeration (CVE), Open Vulnerability Assessment Language (OVAL) and Common Vulnerability Scoring System standards.
nCircle has completed strategic implementations for many federal government customers including:
Executive Office of the President

Department of Defense
Department of Energy
Department of the Interior
Department of Health and Human Services
Department of Homeland Security
Department of Labor

'It has been exciting to watch the efforts of SCAP standards advance over time. More configuration policies are becoming available in SCAP format from a growing number of sources including DISA, NSA, NIST, MITRE, as well as vendors like Microsoft and RedHat,' said Keren Cummins, director of federal markets at nCircle. 'With this upgrade, the nCircle Suite360 solutions now provide customers immediate use of those policies, natively, across the entire enterprise.'
