      [Via Satellite 10-04-13] iDirect Government Technologies (iGT), a wholly owned subsidiary of VT iDirect (iDirect), has launched its Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) hardening scripts, an improved information assurance (IA) compliance and security support for network management systems, protocol processors and SatManage servers.

      Available to iGT’s premium iSupport customers, the SCAP hardening script supports secure networks by managing vulnerabilities and evaluating information assurance. SCAP hardening scripts are now available for any iGT customer operating iDX 2.3, 2.3.1, 3.0 and SatManage 5.2.

      “iGT is committed to providing the latest security enhancements and following the latest Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) and SCAP guidelines, allowing Department of Defense (DoD) and government agencies to maintain information assurance and DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) accreditation for their networks,” said Karl Fuchs, vice president of technology at iGT. “SCAP improves our automated information assurance assessments to mission-critical defense systems, resulting in improved policy compliance and vulnerability management.”
