Allentown, PA: Netizen Corporation, an ISO 27001:2013 certified provider of cyber security solutions for defense, government and commercial markets, was recently recognized by FedHealthIT Magazine for its AutoSTIG™ suite of software tools. Named one of the “5 Solutions Disrupting the Federal Health Market,” AutoSTIG™ is an automated tool that validates the secure configuration of servers, network devices, software, and other information technology (IT) systems in accordance with Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) guidelines.

Originally developed by Netizen in support of cyber security engineering and validation efforts at the Department of Defense (DoD), AutoSTIG™ reduces the typical security assessment time from over an hour to less than 5 minutes for many IT systems while exporting results into a format usable by existing tracking and reporting tools. AutoSTIG™ is currently being leveraged by customers ranging from the federal government and DoD to Fortune 500 companies around the country to assess and secure their IT infrastructure faster and more effectively than manual methods.

“We are honored that our AutoSTIG™ software was recognized by this prestigious publication and are immensely proud of the innovations being developed by our team of engineers here at Netizen,” said Michael Hawkins, President and CEO. He added, “We’re excited to also announce that, since this recognition was formally published late last year, we have developed additional AutoSTIG™ functionality supporting Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012 R2 with more are on the way all the time.”
