How to Monitor for Unauthorized Changes to Your Linux Packages With SCM
May 26, 2020

Packages keep your Linux servers up to date and running smoothly. Yet if someone tampers with the packages getting deployed to your server, you could have serious performance issues, expose your organization to harmful viruses, or open it up a new vulnerability. Keeping an eye out for what packages are deployed, the package sources, and how they're changed could help prevent or alert you to an issue. In this video, we'll show you how to gain visibility into your Linux packages and track how they're changing over time.

This is good stuff I've been wondering if SCM now also linux capable may be able to help STIG windows and linux.  It seems to have promise!

It's a fantastic product and it's moving very, very quickly.  We've been able to rely on so many people being a part of the UX studies.  The product direction makes my inner IT-nerd happy.
