What is NIST 800-53?

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requires that all federal agencies use security controls for the IT systems that support their operations. The guidelines required for compliance are specified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-53.

However following NIST 800-53 can be confusing, complex and expensive for many companies, especially those with limited staff and security expertise. The Alert Logic SIEMless Threat Detection portfolio addresses a broad range of regulatory compliance requirements to help you prevent incidents, such as a data breach, that threaten the security, availability, integrity and privacy of customer data. Alert Logic connects a security platform, threat intelligence, and cybersecurity experts to provide the best level of security and compliance coverage your workloads require across any environment.

Alert Logic delivers a solution that provides asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, and application security. Our solution can help you map to NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171 standards and quickly understand the state of compliance without hiring new staff. Our expert services augment your in-house security team by monitoring your workloads and environment 24/7.
