Amazon Web Services has given the Center for Internet Security the authority to operate the latter's virtual machine security tool on the AWS platform. CIS said Friday that its Hardened Images service is capable of applying secure configuration on virtual machines in the cloud to mitigate vulnerabilities from cyberattacks.

The security settings yielded by the tool are preconfigured to meet the organization's technology benchmarks in line with the Department of Defense’s Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program requirements.

“Our partnership within the ATO on AWS will have multiple benefits for our customers, including improving cloud security and reducing time to develop a compliant environment,“ said Curtis Dukes, executive vice president at CIS' security best practices and automation group.
