In today’s environment of cyber security threats and regulatory burdens, compliance and information security are critically important to the operation of any government agency. Federal Information Security officers face a diverse set of challenges, from securing the integrity of sensitive data to establishing internal controls and passing external audits. The goal of NIST 800-53 regulation is to ensure that Federal Agencies take adequate measures to protect sensitive data that is being stored and transferred.
Safe-T Secure Data Exchange (SDE) is a NIST 800-53 compliant, industry-leading secure data exchange broker solution that can be integrated elegantly into an organization’s eco-system in order to manage, secure, and broker any data exchange flow, into and out of the organization.
With 256-bit level encryption, Safe-T SDE ensures that protected information is transferred securely between internal and external users. Tools such as one-time passwords, download limits, expiration dates, access restrictions and secured links provide the strongest level of compliance to ensure that data is stored and transported in a private and secure manner.
Federal Agencies use a variety of legacy software solutions, each with their own point security protocols. A diverse information infrastructure can quickly become difficult to manage and lead to regulatory/compliance confusion. Safe-T SDE is a key component for any sound NIST 800-53 compliance strategy and is the ideal solution to bring the disparate software architectures under a single protocol. Compliance officers can set internal controls and workflow standards through the policy enforcement engine to ensure that the data and documents that move internally and externally comply with all regulatory standards.
An integral part of any NIST 800-53 strategy is a secure perimeter, preventing hackers from breaching the internal network. Safe-T Secure Data Access (SDA) is a logical isolation solution, designed to provide an unprecedented level of network protection. Safe-T SDA can be employed to eliminate the need for servers in the DMZ zone and shore up any existing DMZ solutions that the enterprise may use. By closing virtually all inbound ports, enterprises that employ the SDA solution enjoy a level of protection that is unlike any other solution on the market.
NIST 800-53 protocols call for the use of an anti-virus system to detect and repel incoming malware. Safe-T SDE can integrate with the organization’s anti-virus and scanning engines, in order to integrate them into data exchange flows. Agencies are no longer tied to the signature detection and zero-day capabilities of a single vendor, instead enjoying the full protection of a multitude of organizations dedicated to detecting and removing malicious code.
