CIS Offers Securely-Configured Virtual Images via AWS' U.S. Govt. Cloud Marketplace - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe Center for Internet Security has added its “hardened” virtual images to Amazon Web Services‘ cloud marketplace for U.S. government customers.

CIS said Wednesday its CIS Hardened Images are now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) marketplace and have been accessible to other customers through the AWS Marketplace since 2015.

The securely-configured images include exception reports and CIS-Configuration Assessment Tool Pro reports, which are available to users of Linux, Microsoft Windows Server, CentOS LinuxRed Hat Enterprise Linux and other operating systems.

CIS is a non-profit organization that protects private and public organizations against cyber threats through the support of the global information technology community.
