Meet FISMA compliance and NIST SP 800-53, Rev. 4 requirements — especially the “Access Control”, “Audit and Accountability” and “Identification and Authentication” control families

Security and compliance for Federal government agencies requires navigating new regulations and getting ahead of emerging threats which can impact national security. Complying with FISMA requirements and NIST SP 800-53 poses a significant challenge. With more emphasis on leveraging technology to improve intra-agency and inter-agency collaboration as specified in current FISMA compliance guidelines, the Federal Government is placing a greater sense of urgency on real-time situational awareness to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of responses to emerging security threats.

The sensitive nature of privileged accounts and their elevated privileges require extra attention as part of any risk management process as expressed in many security standards, including ISO 27001 and NIST 800-53. CyberArk’s integrated privileged account security solution and real-time monitoring solutions deliver a risk-based approach to an agency’s information security programs and meet FISMA and NIST 800-53 requirements especially when it comes to “Access Control”, “Audit and Accountability” and “Identification and Authentication” control families.

Key Benefits:

  • Security, Accountability and Audit: Comprehensive privileged account lifecycle management from discovering and securing the accounts to managing and auditing the use of them
  • Effectively Restrict Privileged Access: Automatic policy enforcement for granular access control and password management throughout the organization, including hardcoded, clear text passwords in applications
  • Easily Rebuild the Chain of Events: Secure and controlled privileged session initiation with real-time, recorded monitoring
  • Continuous Monitoring and Alerting: Native integration with leading organizational SIEM products to send CEF compliant syslog events
