Alert Logic® has added support for the latest version (1.2.0) of the CIS Amazon Web Services Foundations Benchmark for all product levels included with SIEMless Threat Management™ - Alert Logic Essentials, Professional, and Enterprise. New features have been introduced that allow you to assess your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account against the latest version of the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark.
Updated Configuration Checks
Updated configuration checks support both Level 1 and Level 2 of the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark version 1.2.0. These configuration checks include, but are not limited to:
- Use of multi-factor authentication
- AWS Config auditing
- Review of VPC peering network rules
- Review of IAM policies
- Access key rotation
Updated step-by-step remediation guidance is now available for the AWS Management Console and AWS command line interface to resolve configuration settings that do not meet the benchmark.
CloudTrail Log File Validation
CloudTrail log file validation is enabled when Alert Logic deploys CloudTrail in your AWS account.
Finally, the benchmark version number is included in all descriptions and inside the report, which can be found within the Alert Logic console at Reports > Compliance > CIS Benchmarks. This report is available immediately in AWS deployments of Alert Logic Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Cloud Insight, and Cloud Insight Essentials.
