October 13, 2016 · Columbia, MD
Tenable support for NIST SP 800-171 enables better transparency between public and private sectors with comprehensive cybersecurity solutions and compliance reporting
Tenable Network Security, Inc., a global leader transforming security technology for the business needs of tomorrow, announced today support for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-171 to help federal systems integrators (FSIs) and other non-federal organizations report on compliance and protect the confidentiality of sensitive information shared between the public and private sectors.
The new NIST SP 800-171 solution from Tenable provides federal contractors, subcontractors, service providers, colleges and universities, and other non-federal organizations with the ability to continuously monitor, measure and effectively communicate adherence to NIST technical security controls. By delivering broad and continuous coverage across the entire environment, including physical, cloud, virtualized and mobile systems used in IT and industrial control networks, Tenable helps organizations working with the federal sector to report on their security posture and protect the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
“The interconnected nature of the federal ecosystem, tied to the fact that federal organizations store a lot of sensitive information, makes it that much more important for commercial organizations to have strong security practices in place,” said Darron Makrokanis, vice president of Federal, Tenable Network Security. “Compliance measures help hold agencies accountable, and the NIST SP 800-171 takes this one step further by bringing the standardization process into the commercial world. The new Tenable solution gives FSIs the visibility they need to assess and report on their security programs to demonstrate compliance when handling controlled unclassified federal information.”
With Tenable, FSIs can take advantage of dynamic asset lists to logically segment, manage and report on the status of specific systems. Additionally, intelligent connectors sync with existing security products to audit and analyze events and identify control weaknesses.
Tenable technology powers the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Assured Compliance Assessment Solution (ACAS) and also supports the DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program.
