Continuous compliance at scale

NIST SP 800-171 Compliance

Proactive RMF assessments and risk-prioritized remediation to demonstrate continuous NIST SP 800-171 compliance

Configuration Security: Evidence-based NIST SP 800-171 Compliance

Network vulnerabilities left undetected, and therefore unmitigated, could compromise the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical data and/or applications. And such compromise can cause significant operational and business/mission issues.

That is why organizations storing or processing Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) for government agencies are contractually required to comply with NIST SP 800-171 requirements.

Nipper solutions are trusted by US military and civilian federal agencies and their prime and sub-contractors to accurately automate network device assessments against trusted security benchmarks and risk management frameworks, including NIST SP 800-171 and CMMC.

ICON - Configuration Drift Monitoring - Enterprise

Assess for configuration drift

Gain immediate awareness of any device configuration changes, providing assurance that planned network changes have not created new vulnerabilities as well as alerting to unplanned changes.

ICON - Evidence-based compliance - Enterprise

Validate compliance with evidence

DoD contractors can use the Nipper NIST SP 800-171 module and other Nipper report modules to assess and evidence NIST SP 800-171 Controls.

ICON - Compromise Non-Compliance - Enterprise

Improve compliance posture

Prioritize risk by network criticality and receive device-specific guidance on how to fix misconfigurations, informing POAMs (Plans of Action and Milestones) and decreasing remediation time.

Research Report

This study reveals that an average of 51 network device misconfigurations were discovered in a two-year period with 4% deemed to be critical vulnerabilities that could take down the network within the U.S. Federal Government.
