Puppet Enters Compliance Partnership with Center for Internet Security
August 24, 2020

Puppet announced a partnership with the Center for Internet Security, Inc. (CIS).

By formally partnering with CIS, Puppet is able to harness the power of CIS’s global community of security and compliance professionals to build better solutions for customers.

“CIS literally wrote the rule book on compliance - their Benchmarks have become industry standard for compliance across the IT industry,” said Yvonne Wassenaar, CEO of Puppet. “With this partnership, we’ll be able to unite CIS’s extensive body of knowledge with Puppet’s deep IT and automation expertise, making it easier for our customers to achieve the enforcement of compliance they need across their increasingly complex infrastructure environments.”

In May, Puppet announced a service offering aimed at alleviating this compliance pain point, ensuring that customers are equipped to pass audits quickly through the enforcement of CIS Benchmarks, CIS’s best practices for securing IT systems and data.

According to a report from Ponemon Institute, “the average cost for organizations that experience non-compliance problems is $14.82 million, a 45 percent increase from 2011.” However, companies that incorporate automation and continuous compliance policies into their infrastructure can save thousands of dollars and countless hours by reducing the complexities of audits, as well as hardening their systems against exploits and vulnerabilities. By leveraging CIS Benchmarks, Puppet is able to provide an end-to-end compliance solution for customers that enforces CIS standards across all systems and addresses gaps as they are identified.

Curt Dukes, CIS EVP & GM, Security Best Practices, said: “This partnership reinforces our commitment to helping others improve their compliance and overall security posture.”
