Top 4 security controls: Do your PCs make the grade?
by Mirko Zorz - Thursday, 13 March 2014.
In this podcast recorded at RSA Conference 2014, Wolfgang Kandek, CTO at Qualys, talks about a new free service that help organizations implement the Top 4 Critical Security Controls to fend off attacks.

The new service helps organizations quickly determine if the PCs in their environments have properly implemented the Top 4 Critical Security Controls, which the Council on CyberSecurity estimates can help companies prevent 85% of cyber-attacks.

Built on the QualysGuard Cloud Platform, the new Top 4 cloud service helps businesses easily and quickly identify whether Windows PCs in their environments have implemented the Top 4 controls for:
  • Application Whitelisting – only allowing approved software to run
  • Application Patching – keeping applications, plug-ins and other software up to date
  • OS Patching – keeping operating systems current with the latest fixes
  • Minimizing Administrative Privileges – preventing malicious software from making silent changes.
