Continuous compliance at scale

NIST SP 800-53 Compliance

Assure NIST SP 800-53 compliance with continuous visibility of misconfigurations and vulnerabilities.

Configuration Security: Evidence-based NIST SP 800-53 Compliance

The configuration of networks is critical to protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) of the most sensitive federal data, systems, and services.

Required by US government agencies for federal networks, NIST SP 800-53 controls are selected and used in a number of different risk management frameworks, including FISMA, CDM, and DISA RMF.

Our solutions are a trusted component in the vulnerability management toolsets of federal agencies for verifying that router, switch and firewall configurations remain secure and compliant.

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

Accurately automate the assessment of up to 49 NIST SP 800-53 network controls.

ICON - Software Vulnerability Management - Enterprise

Prioritize risk for remediation

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.
