NIST compliance service for small business
Accreditation According to NIST SP 800-171
Introducing ASCERTIS – Automated Security Certification for Information Systems. ASCERTIS is a web-based assessment tool that our trained professionals will use to walk your company leadership (CEO, COO, CTO, or IT Director) through the assessment process. The process will take less than one week.
We follow the Federal Risk Management Framework (RMF) model, so any federal contract specialist will easily understand the ASCERTIS process. Thus, you will gain assurance that your information system is compliant with DFAR clause 252.204-7012.
ASCERTIS is compliant with the new NIST SP 800-171 Rev 1 – which requires that organizations produce a System Security Plan and Plan of Action and Milestones. ASCERTIS also produces a Risk Assessment Report, a Security Assessment Report, a Security Test and Evaluation Plan and provide an Authority to Operate letter. All these artifacts are required in the Accreditation and Authorization of Federal Information Systems, and now with very little effort for what other companies are charging you for just a compliance review you can have the 6 Key artifacts that the Federal Government requires for their systems.
Why choose ASCERTIS?
ASCERTIS is vendor agnostic. Although many products can provide the requisite security functions, there is no bias in ASCERTIS.
ASCERTIS is designed specifically for NIST SP 800-171 Rev 1. Every module allows the assessor to quickly define their information infrastructure and determine what vulnerabilities exist.
Small companies usually don’t have dedicated information assurance professionals that understand what the control requirements mean. This forces other companies to spend valuable time educating the corporate officers in technologies outside of their field of expertise.
ASCERTIS professionals have worked with a myriad of web-based tools and have designed ASCERTIS to be intuitive. The ASCERTIS process includes the Risk Management Framework so that assessments are defensible, providing evidence of due diligence for Corporate Officers.
