Automox Launches Community to Help Organizations Automate Cyber Hygiene Best Practices

Automox, the cloud-native cyber hygiene platform provider, today announced the launch of Automox Alive, a community for IT and security practitioners that facilitates the sharing of extensible Automox Workletstm to improve cyber hygiene. An extension of the Automox platform, the new community has been launched from beta to the public as a resource dedicated to compressing exposure time across the modern attack surface.

"Early on, Automox Alive has exceeded our expectations and proven to be an incredible resource for our team," said Stephen Scullion, System Administrator, Learning Pool. "Easily seeing how others are tapping into the power of Automox has helped our thought process on how patches and software configurations should be implemented across the enterprise. We look forward to continuing to leverage this great resource to make our jobs easier and our environment consistently secure."

Automox Workletstm drastically extend the potential to automate and enforce custom cyber hygiene tasks across the enterprise beyond traditional patch management. Worklets are reusable, script-based modules that are simple to build and can be requested, built and shared directly within Automox Alive. This level of customization breaks the barriers of defined product roadmaps, empowering Automox users to tailor automated cyber hygiene practices to specific business needs, such as disabling vulnerable processes, rolling back unwanted patches, managing native OS controls, supporting legacy OS with mass deployments and more.

"The goal with Automox Alive is to promote a collaborative environment where users can customize how they make our platform work for them without being confined to a traditional vendor roadmap," said Jay Prassl, CEO and Founder, Automox. "Our vision is to be the go-to resource and means to automate cyber hygiene, and the early feedback has been nothing but positive."

A natural complement to the Automox platform, Automox Alive is an example of the company executing on its mission to give global organizations the resources needed to automate the cyber hygiene fundamentals that create more secure enterprise environments.

In conjunction with the official launch of Automox Alive, the company also announced it will be holding a monthly bounty program with cash prizes for community members that submit Worklets to the substantial and growing library in the Alive community.

Automox will demonstrate the capabilities of its Alive community and platform at SpiceWorld in Austin, Texas, September 23-25, 2019.
