Vulnerability discussion

Most information systems are capable of providing a wide variety of functions and services. Some of the functions and services provided by default may not be necessary to support essential organizational operations. Unneeded services and processes provide additional threat vectors and avenues of attack to the information system. The MDM server is a critical component of the mobility architecture and must be configured to only those ports, protocols, and services (PPS) necessary to support functionality, all others must be expressly disabled or removed. A DoD-approved firewall implements the required network restrictions. A host-based firewall is appropriate where the MDM server runs on a standalone platform. Network firewalls or other architectures may be preferred where the MDM server runs in a cloud or virtualized solution.SFR ID: FMT_SMF.1.1(1) Refinement

Check content

Review the implementation of the MaaS360 server with the site system administrator. Verify a host based firewall (for example HBSS) is installed on the Windows server. If the MaaS360 server is not protected by a DoD-approved firewall, this is a finding.

Fix text

Protect the MaaS360 server with a DoD-approved firewall.

Pro Tips

Lavender hyperlinks in small type off to the right (of CSS class id, if you view the page source) point to globally unique URIs for each document and item. Copy the link location and paste anywhere you need to talk unambiguously about these things.

You can obtain data about documents and items in other formats. Simply provide an HTTP header Accept: text/turtle or Accept: application/rdf+xml.
