In our last blog, we discussed one of the less technical (but still critical) benefits of an automated workflow solution: how to create a culture of compliance. Today, we’ll go in a more tactical direction: how SigmaFlow enhances your NERC compliance capabilities with integrated baseline validation.
Many utilities use a solution like our partner Tripwire to collect the “as provisioned” ports and services data on their systems and cyber assets. This provisioned data monitoring provides clear visibility into the state of your infrastructure – what ports are open, what services are on them, what software patches are installed etc. Solutions like Tripwire streamline the process of creating and managing your baseline, but on their own, don’t facilitate the ability to take action on the data.
