Compliance Mandates: NIST sp800-53
How BOUNCER Helps You Meet National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53
Fulfilling NIST sp800-53 Guidelines and Stopping Configuration Drift
As an IT security professional, you are responsible for the ongoing configuration management and monitoring of your federal information systems. Fulfilling these requirements includes complying with the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53 (NIST sp800-53) guidelines. That’s where we come in. Led by longtime security professionals with experience in critical government agencies such as the Department of Defense (DoD) and Air Force Information Warfare Center (AFIWC), we help you successfully meet the NIST sp800-53 guidelines by ensuring your system’s configurations don’t change over time while protecting your endpoints from all external threats, no matter how the malware is delivered.
Bouncer combines unmatched endpoint security to meet your compliance requirements with an intuitive administrative experience. Bouncer was designed for real users like yourself to control change and stop threats without overburdening your IT staff. Bouncer’s industry leading Trusted Change process provides the most flexible approach to managing configuration drift available in an application whitelisting solution.
We Understand Your Problems
“Configuration drift” can create an assortment of problems for your systems that prevent you from achieving and maintaining the NIST federal requirements, including:
- Difficulty monitoring and managing continuous system activities
- Inability to control your information system components
- Inaccurate assessments of your security controls
- System vulnerabilities due to lack of effective endpoint security
How Bouncer Helps You
Bouncer application whitelisting helps you achieve two primary goals that are critical to meeting the NIST sp800-53 guidelines. First, Bouncer prevents configuration drift by locking down your systems’ configurations so they don’t change over time. Second, Bouncer quickly compares each application that tries to run against a list of known good and approved applications. If the program is on the list, it runs. If it is not, then nothing happens — the malware or unauthorized application does not execute. As a result, Bouncer helps you:
- Protect your endpoints against deposited malware and other malicious code
- Ensure that only approved applications can execute and that there is a clean audit trail documenting the fact
- Automate installation of endpoints in just minutes, without hand-tooling a whitelist for each system, so you can secure your infrastructure today
- Manage many endpoints as a single collection, with the same policies, audits, and more
- Free your system resources to pursue deeper organizational goals
