Automate the assessment of 89% of NIST 800-171 network controls

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) introduced NIST 800-171 as a list of cybersecurity controls to protect controlled and sensitive government information handled by federal contractors and other organizations working with the US government. Titania Nipper can automate the compliance assessment of 89% of the NIST 800-171 controls related to network devices, across 8 control families:

  • Access Control
  • Audit and Accountability 
  • Configuration Management
  • Identification and Authentication
  • Risk Assessment
  • Security Assessment
  • System and Communications Protection
  • System and Information Integrity

Nipper NIST 800-171 Module

Titania Nipper’s NIST 800-171 Module will automate the assessment of 15 NIST 800-171 requirements, across 6 control families. Evidential information for a further 6 requirements, across 4 control families, that can be found in other reporting modules (e.g. Configuration Report), will be highlighted by the NIST 800-171 module.

The module can help to quickly and easily:

  • Establish compliance baseline to begin working towards compliance;
  • Consolidate all relevant NIST 800-171 findings, including recommendations to address non-compliance, in an easy-to-generate report, which can be output to GRC and SIEM systems.
  • Prioritize remediation activity based on ease of fix as well as impact and likelihood of exploitation; and
  • Rapidly address misconfigurations and issues raised as areas of non-compliance with the exact technical fixes provided.

More information about the Nipper NIST 800-171 Module can be found on the datasheet.

Assess up to 113 SPRS points using Nipper

The US Department of Defense (DoD) determines its contractors’ compliance with NIST 800-171 using a points-based approach, with scores recorded in the DoD’s Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS). Titania Nipper enables US defense contractors to evidence up to 113 SPRS points, representing 36% of the total SPRS points required for full NIST 800-171 compliance. Nipper’s reports can also be used to inform the workflow and timelines of contractors’ Plan of Action to achieve full NIST 800-171 compliance. See our NIST 800-171 guide for more information on how to stay compliant. 

Trusted by US government and federal contractors for over a decade

Titania Nipper is in service with the DoD, US federal agencies and government contractors, where it is trusted to automate the configuration audits of network devices against risk management frameworks and benchmarks, such as CMMC, NIST 800-53, DISA STIGs and CIS benchmarks.

Nipper’s proven accuracy advantage is estimated to save its customers up to 3 hours per device by not investigating false positives reported by other compliance tools.
