Why We’re Celebrating Trio’s NIST 800-53 Certificate

Trio Team

Trio, a leading provider of Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, proudly announces the attainment of the NIST 800-53 certification. The NIST 800-53 certification serves as a testament to Trio’s dedication to maintaining robust security standards in its MDM solution. This achievement reflects our relentless pursuit of excellence in safeguarding sensitive data and ensuring the integrity of our clients’ information assets.

 

Understanding NIST 800-53 Certification

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-53 outlines security and privacy controls for federal information systems and organizations. This comprehensive framework provides a set of guidelines and best practices to enhance the security posture of information systems against a wide range of threats.

Attaining the NIST 800-53 certification entails rigorous evaluation and adherence to stringent security standards. Trio underwent a thorough assessment of its MDM solution to ensure compliance with the prescribed security controls and requirements outlined in the NIST framework. Key features of NIST 800-53 include:

Comprehensive Security Controls: NIST 800-53 outlines a wide array of security controls across 18 families, covering areas such as access control, incident response, cryptography, and system and communication protection.

Applicability to Federal Systems: This publication is designed to address the unique security requirements of federal information systems and organizations operating within the federal government’s sphere.

Flexibility and Adaptability: While tailored for federal systems, NIST 800-53’s controls are adaptable and scalable, making them suitable for implementation in various environments, including private-sector organizations and critical infrastructure sectors.

 

Trio proudly announces the attainment of the NIST 800-53 certification, highlighting our commitment to security excellence.

 

Difference Between NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171

The NIST 800-53 certificate shouldn’t be confused with the NIST 800-171 certificate, though both are part of NIST compliance policies that organizations should be adhere to. NIST Special Publication 800-171 focuses on safeguarding Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in nonfederal systems and organizations. It aims to enhance the protection of sensitive information shared between federal agencies and their external partners, contractors, and suppliers.

While both publications provide security controls, the specific requirements outlined in NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171 differ based on their respective scopes and target environments. Incidentally, Trio also has a NIST 800-171 certificate as well!
