The Fundamentals of Any Cyber Security Frameworkhas always been the most difficult and labor intensive to acheive.

The Center for Internet Security (CIS) lists a prioritized set of actions to protect organizations from known and unknown cyber-attacks.

The first, and arguably the most important controls, (what is on your network, and what software is it running) are fundamental to any framework — The Center for Internet Security identify these as CIS 1 and 2.

Organizations still struggle with manual processes, matching outdated excel documents and  relying on agents deployed on the machines. These processes cost labor, are a historic view of an environment, and are outdated the moment the list is correlated due to the dynamic nature of networks today.

We can automatically provide what organizations need to achieve these controls for any framework. But more specifically for the CIS example:

CIS Control 1

Inventory of Authorized and Unauthorized Devices

“Actively manage (inventory, track, and correct) all hardware devices on the network so that only authorized devices are given access, and unauthorized and unmanaged devices are found and prevented from gaining access.”

To achieve CIS Control 1, the Center for Internet Security highlights 3 key steps:

  1. Identify all devices

  2. Document the inventory

  3. Keep the inventory current

CIS Control 2

Inventory of Authorized and Unauthorized Software

“Actively manage (inventory, track, and correct) all software on the network so that only authorized software is installed and can execute, and that unauthorized and unmanaged software is found and prevented from installation or execution.”

To achieve CIS Control 2, the Center for Internet Security requires you to:

  1. Identify and document all software

  2. Develop a whitelist of approved software

  3. Manage the software on the system through regular scanning and updates

That is why The Teneo Group exists – we exist to secure your network. We focus only on cyber security, we research and bring these types of technologies to the people that need them.

With decades of experience, The Teneo Group helps companies improve their cyber security posture, from small start-ups to Fortune 100 leaders in their field.  Enterprise grade cyber security for your data – regardless where it is being accessed  – network, cloud, mobile, end point, SASE or through IoT.

Why is CMDB Enrichment Important?

CMDBs are integral to minimizing IT and security incidents. As a centralized repository, they’re often used for tracking and managing IT assets. With today’s complex infrastructures, though, an accurate, up-to-date asset inventory is difficult to maintain and rarely provides a complete picture of all assets at any given time. Enriching CMDB data provides a continuously updated CMDB, de-conflicting asset data to provide a singular, credible view into any asset.

  • Inaccurate CMDB Data

  • Missing Configuration Items

  • CMDB Maintenance

Helps Reconcile Asset Gaps and Maintain an Accurate CMDB

Maintaining a CMDB is a struggle for most organizations. Our platform helps you ensure you have the credible, comprehensive, and actionable asset data you need to make informed decisions with confidence.


Finding Security Coverage Gaps

Companies are spending more and more on security tools each year — but security coverage gaps occur when security controls (such as endpoint protection, encryption, or vulnerability assessment) don’t exist on devices where they should be deployed.

  • Missing Endpoint and Device Management Agents

  • Incomplete Vulnerability Scans

  • Inconsistent User Access Policies

By providing a complete asset inventory and connecting to all of your security controls, today’s technology enables you to continuously surface coverage gaps and automate actions when they’re found.

Ensure Agents Are Installed Where They Should Be

Maximize deployment of agent-based tools and ensure agents are working properly and applied with correct policies.
