USGCB Compliance

The United States Government Configuration Baseline (USGCB) is a security configuration mandated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to standardize the configuration of desktop computers used by U.S. Government agencies. WesVar has been tested to verify compliance with the USGCB under Windows 7®, using a SCAP validated tool with USGCB Scanner capability.

  • All WesVar components are fully functional and operate correctly as intended on systems using the USGCB under Windows 7.
  • The standard installation, operation, maintenance, update, and/or patching of WesVar components does not alter the configuration settings from the approved USGCB configuration. WesVar uses the Windows Installer Service for installation to the default “program files” directory and is able to silently install and uninstall.
  • All WesVar components are able to run in the standard user context without elevated system administration privileges.
