About Server Hardening

Cyber Command provides the tools for agencies to evaluate their systems against a variety of hardening guidelines and provides a detailed report of the security risks associated with any identified gaps. Recommendations on policy and configuration changes, as well as technical assistance to make them, are provided to address those gaps resulting in a more secure operating environment across the State. The evaluation can be run as often as needed to establish initial baselines, validate changes, and to track progress toward meeting hardening goals.

What problems it solves

The goal of systems hardening is to reduce security risk by eliminating potential attack vectors, minimizing the system's attack surface, and addressing known vulnerabilities through validated secure configuration.
