NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Cybersecurity Solutions
Cyber attacks against government systems and critical infrastructure are on the rise. The OPM FISMA report to congress calls out 30,899 cyber incidents across agencies in 2016 alone. The evolution of these sophisticated attacks has motivated an increased focus on enforcing federal compliance mandates and refreshing NIST guidelines. NIST, in collaboration with industry, academia and government, produced guides to assist with mitigation of cyber risk and support compliance achievement in government agencies, critical infrastructure organizations and organizations that store, transmit or process government data. BeyondTrust privileged access management and vulnerability management solutions support the implementation of three key NIST cybersecurity guides.
Privileged Access Management and Vulnerability Management Support for NIST Standards
The 2016 FISMA report to congress points to significant progress made by agencies in strengthening their defensive cybersecurity posture. Progress is the result of initiatives to enhance government oversight of agency cybersecurity, legal requirements and the implementation of tools like the Cybersecurity Framework. A recent BeyondTrust survey of Federal IT Pros, reveals agencies believe these mandates and tools are effective and compliance is a high priority.
BeyondTrust PowerBroker Privileged Access Management and Retina Enterprise Vulnerability Management solutions proactively help eliminate data breaches from insider privilege abuse and external hacking attacks. With an integrated risk intelligence platform, BeyondTrust cybersecurity solutions reveal critical risks hidden within volumes data to prevent breaches, maintain NIST compliance, and ensure business continuity.
Mapping NIST Cybersecurity Guidelines with BeyondTrust Solutions
NIST SP800-53 delivers a comprehensive approach to information security and risk management to strengthen information systems making them more resilient in the face of threats and cyberattacks. Explore nine (9) NIST security control families and the alignment of BeyondTrust capabilities to help your organization mitigate risk and support compliance.
NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a risk-based framework for critical infrastructure organizations to voluntarily manage their cybersecurity risks. Developed in partnership between industry and government, based on industry best practices and international standards, it provides a universal standard. The framework is designed to be flexible enough to address an organization’s unique risk tolerance. Discover the Cybersecurity Framework functions supported by BeyondTrust to support your implementation of the NIST Framework requirements.
NIST SP800-171 was created to provide recommended requirements to secure and protect the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) when it resides in a non-federal system. Agencies use these requirements in contract vehicles and agreements with non-federal organizations to establish requirements for appropriate security measures. Learn how BeyondTrust capabilities align to the SP800-171 requirements related to privilege and vulnerability management to help your organization secure federal information and support compliance.
