NextLabs solutions for government provide the ability to:
- Ensure compliance with a wide range of regulatory requirements by automatically enforcing policies.
- Consistently enforce policies across systems, repositories, and applications so no matter where data resides, it is always protected.
- Centrally monitor data access and usage to determine if policies are adequate to comply with internal policies.
- Identify and protect sensitive data, and monitor and control threats to ensure compliance with Cross-Agency Priority Goals, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, JIE, CCMC, and other federal mandates.
Insider abuse can be as damaging if not more so than external breaches. NextLabs provides an additional layer of protection by utilizing fine-grained access controls to ensure that only authorized users gain access to critical information. Attributes about the user, data, and environment are considered before authorization is granted. If all attributes do not correspond, access is denied.
As cybersecurity threats have proliferated and computer technology has advanced, compliance requirements have become increasingly complex. The government mandates that encryption, compliance regulations such as FISMA, NIST 800-53, and Federal Information Processing Standards, as well as Common Criteria, need to be part of any data-centric security solution. And, as data moves to the cloud, government agencies need to comply with regulations such as FedRAMP.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CMMC) is also one of the Department of Defense’s newest verification mechanisms. It’s designed to ensure that cybersecurity controls and processes adequately protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) and federal contract information (FCI) that resides on defense industrial base systems and networks. The CMMC model measures cybersecurity maturity with five levels and aligns a set of processes and practices with the type and sensitivity of the information to be protected and the associated range of threats.
Regardless of the specific regulation, NextLabs solutions provide the ability to comply by implementing policies to automatically enforce specific access rules. Audit logs and reports allow agencies to track compliance and prevent violations.
End-to-end Protection with Lower Administration
Government agencies have a daunting task – increase security for their critical assets while working with decreasing IT budgets. NextLabs’ attribute-based policy platform provides the federal government a unified solution for data protection which protects data across the entire organization and when shared with other organizations. Centralized policy management enables agencies to streamline processes and enforcement with more robust protection. Data is protected whether it resides in the application or is being shared by the same set of centralized attribute-based policies – facilitating updates and additions. The complexity of managing the data and costs associated with the administration are greatly reduced.
