Automate the assessment of 94% of NIST 800-53 core network controls

The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Special Publication 800-53 comprises operational, technical, and management security controls that are designed to secure and enhance the resilience US government networks and federal IT systems. Titania Nipper can automate the compliance assessment of 94% of the NIST 800-53 controls related to core network devices, across 10 control families:

1. Access Control (AC)
2. Audit and Accountability (AU) 
3. Security Assessment and Authorization (CA)
4. Configuration Management (CM)
5. Identification and Authentication (IA)
6. Risk Assessment (RA)
7. System and Services Acquisition (SA)
8. System and Communications Protection (SC)
9. System and Information Integrity (SI)
10. Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM)

Titania is proven to protect critical infrastructure

Trusted by US government and federal contractors for over a decade

Nipper is a trusted component in the vulnerability management toolsets of 30+ federal agencies, helping them assess firewalls, switches and routers to detect critical misconfigurations and automate the configuration audits of network devices against risk management frameworks and benchmarks, such as CMMC, NIST 800-171, DISA STIGs, and CIS benchmarks.

Automate 94% of network controls

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

Nipper can be used to automate the assessment of firewalls, switches and routers for 34 NIST 800-53 controls, cutting audit times by up to 80% due to its accuracy, and identifying misconfigurations that arise from interdependent settings that other configuration auditing cannot detect.

With Nipper Enterprise agencies are now able to continuously assess network security on an up-to-hourly basis and have a roadmap to playbook-controlled remediation of identified misconfigurations.
