"cis" usergroup: what is it?

A popular security recommendation for vCenter 6.7 specifies that all Cron files should be owned by root:root, but I see that one of these files is owned by a system group on vCenter 7.0:


-rw-r----- 1 root cis 93 Jul 22 07:18 /etc/cron.d/vpxd_periodic.cron


What does this do? What would the consequences (if any) to system stability, security, or functionality be of changing the group of this file from cis to root?
