FISMA refers to the 2002 Federal Information Security Management Act. FISMA stipulates government information security requirements. It makes federal agencies and organizations they partner with accountable for information security access, enforcement and compliance. FISMA intends to protect federal systems and our nation's critical cyber security infrastructure from cyber terrorists, internal espionage, lone hackers, staff and contractor mistakes.
FISMA along with the Federal Information Processing Standards, FIPS 200, and the National Institute of Standards and Technologies special publication NIST 800-53 specify the technical standards for U.S. government IT security practices and compliance.
Avatier identity management software (AIMS) ensure government agencies control and manage information security, access management and governance. AIMS establishes a unified platform for compliance management policies, regulations and guidelines.
Avatier Identity Management Software (AIMS) and compliance solutions secure Federal agencies against cyber security threats to minimize risks. Through the automation of IT operations, Avatier identity management, access governance, IT risk management, and password management software meet and even improve upon the Federal Information Processing Standards Publication (FIPS 200) cyber security standards.
FISMA and FIPS 200 require federal agencies to implement an agency-wide identity management cyber security program to protect the organization's information systems.
With the Avatier identity manager, agencies can maintain user provisioning, access management control and governance over access certification to information systems through built-in audit controls, real-time system alerts, and continuous monitoring of user access and group memberships.
Avatier identity management cyber security software and compliance solutions guarantee real-time compliance with FISMA. It exposes access management security vulnerabilities while alerting you to cyber security risks from within an agency. AIMS delivers software audit controls meeting FIPS 200 and NIST SP 800-53 specifications. Avatier identity management software provides over forty-five SP 800-53 security controls.
Avatier meets or exceeds the cyber security requirements, operational procedures, and compliance audit controls for FIPS 200 and NIST SP 800-53 in the following areas of critical identity and access management vulnerability:
