Security and Compliance Automation with Ansible


The security posture of systems used in our nation's critical infrastructure and war fighting systems is paramount in the modern age. With increasing complexity and connectivity comes increased risk. Securing systems quickly, consistently, and at scale has long been the requirement but not the reality. The only way to solve this problem is through automation.

Ansible provides key capabilities that make it ideal for ensuring the secure configuration of a system is maintained throughout its service life. Ansible's agentless, push-based architecture combined with the simple and maintainable playbook syntax allow for rapid response to new threats and easy maintenance of complex security standards over time.
