Endpoint Security & HBSS


New DISA OPORD 16-0080 for Endpoint Security was effective January 9, 2017. Is your network updated to meet the new OPORD?


SecureStrux Endpoint Security Team has helped our clients achieve fully compliant CCRI Endpoint Security Scores on both the previous and new OPORDs.

A company’s most valuable commodity is its data. With the rising cost of protecting its assets coupled with the shrinking availability of resources for threat defense, a company can struggle to protect its services, data, or reputation if theft or loss occurs. Any network that holds sensitive or proprietary information is a target. Both research and our experience with government and commercial customers have revealed that the volume and complexity of these threats are multiplying.

Endpoint Security

HBSS (Host Based Security System) is the official branding of the Department of Defense’s commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) Endpoint Security software applications that they use to monitor, detect, and defend their IT assets and systems. HBSS was developed by McAfee using the ePO management engine.

Endpoint Security contains multiple point products designed to meet known intrusion points, discover gaps, and reduce the likelihood of unauthorized device and network access. Leading point products include:

  • Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS)
  • Asset Publishing Service (APS)
  • Asset Configuration Compliance Module (ACCM)
  • Device Control Module (DCM)/Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
  • Policy Auditor (PA)
  • Rogue System Detection (RSD)
  • VirusScan Enterprise (VSE)

Protecting Your Network

At the heart of Endpoint Security is a data monitoring and analytics capability that provides administrators and teams access to real-time asset status and reports, plus centralized configuration and management tools that enable your organization to react quickly.

The endpoint security suite of products is designed to actively protect your network assets from theft, manipulation, or loss from internal or external threats. The centrally-managed server allows staff to deploy, update, configure, and manage the suite of products remotely and discreetly across your network.
