Security Configuration Assessment

Security Configuration Assessment (SCA) involves assessing system settings and configurations to ensure they comply with security best practices and standards. Wazuh has an SCA module that identifies misconfigurations and vulnerabilities on monitored endpoints. This capability helps you manage your attack surface efficiently to improve your security posture.

Take the first step in system hardening by using our Security Configuration Assessment capability to check for exposures and misconfigurations in your endpoints. Wazuh SCA provides the following advantages.

System hardening

Enhance endpoint security by implementing recommended measures. The Wazuh SCA module scans monitored endpoints using CIS benchmarks to identify misconfigurations. SCA reports contain detailed instructions to address configuration gaps, strengthen system defenses, and reduce the attack surface.

Extensive configuration checks

Perform configuration checks on diverse endpoints, cloud workloads, and platforms. The Wazuh SCA module has a wide range of built-in checks for various operating systems hosted on-premise or in the cloud. In addition to built-in checks, you can create custom configuration checks to meet set requirements.
