In this podcast recorded at RSA Conference 2014, Wolfgang Kandek, CTO at Qualys, talks about a new free service that help organizations implement the Top 4 Critical Security Controls to fend off attacks.
The new service helps organizations quickly determine if the PCs in their environments have properly implemented the Top 4 Critical Security Controls, which the Council on CyberSecurity estimates can help companies prevent 85% of cyber-attacks.
Built on the QualysGuard Cloud Platform, the new Top 4 cloud service helps businesses easily and quickly identify whether Windows PCs in their environments have implemented the Top 4 controls for:
- Application Whitelisting – only allowing approved software to run
- Application Patching – keeping applications, plug-ins and other software up to date
- OS Patching – keeping operating systems current with the latest fixes
- Minimizing Administrative Privileges – preventing malicious software from making silent changes.
