Thycotic helps government agencies protect and secure access to government data, implement NIST controls, and meet FISMA compliance

WHAT’s the challenge

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) specifies that not only federal agencies, but also their government contractors, need to develop, document, and implement a security program to protect IT systems and data. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides specific steps to comply with FISMA.

WHY it’s important

A review and audit of FISMA compliance is conducted every year. Those agencies and contractors that fail to pass face public censure and put their organization at risk of cyberattacks. These attacks have resulted in high profile breaches of government agencies including their confidential data and employee information.

HOW we solve it

Thycotic delivers comprehensive Privileged Account Management solutions that protect agency data by securing privileged account passwords, and locking down applications, endpoints and OS configurations to help you meet FISMA and NIST compliance requirements.

Thycotic Privileged Account Management (PAM) security solutions help safeguard government data and personnel information through security controls that satisfy FISMA mandates and NIST implementation requirements.

Thycotic Secret Server helps manage these key security issues.

Complying with FISMA requirements and implementing NIST SP 800-53 controls

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends several steps to comply with FISMA, including NIST SP 800-53, Rev. 4 requirements that specifically address Access Control, Audit and Accountability, and Identification and Authentication control. Thus, managing and securing privileged accounts and their elevated privileges has become a key component of federal cybersecurity auditing standards.

“To ensure network and infrastructure security at every level and meet the government’s own National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, government agencies must have a holistic view of their security postures and be able to assess both strengths and weaknesses in their systems over the course of time.”
