FISMA Compliance

Thales e-Security assists with data security compliance and encryption for FISMA, the Federal Information Security Management Act.

FISMA

FISMA assigns responsibilities to various agencies to ensure the security of data in the federal government. Thales e-Security helps Federal Government agencies and their suppliers meet FISMA requirements.

FISMA Compliance
FISMA Requirements

According to TechTarget’s SearchSecurity website:

FISMA requires program officials, and the head of each agency, to conduct annual reviews of information security programs, with the intent of keeping risks at or below specified acceptable levels in a cost-effective, timely and efficient manner. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) outlines nine steps toward compliance with FISMA compliance:

  1. Categorize the information to be protected.
  2. Select minimum baseline controls.
  3. Refine controls using a risk assessment procedure.
  4. Document the controls in the system security plan.
  5. Implement security controls in appropriate information systems.
  6. Assess the effectiveness of the security controls once they have been implemented.
  7. Determine agency-level risk to the mission or business case.
  8. Authorize the information system for processing.
  9. Monitor the security controls on a continuous basis.
Facets of FISMA Thales e-Security Can Help With

Core Thales e-Security capabilities that help meet FISMA compliance standards include:

  • Encryption and Key Management: Strong, centrally managed, file, volume and application encryption combined with simple, centralized key management that is transparent to processes, applications and users.
  • Access Policies and Privileged User Controls: Restrict access to encrypted data – permitting data to be decrypted only for authorized users and applications, while allowing privileged users to perform IT operations without the ability to see protected information.
  • Security Intelligence: Logs that capture access attempts to protected data, providing high value security intelligence information that can be used with a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution and for compliance reporting.

In addition to helping you comply with FISMA; NIST 800-53, Revision 4; FIPS 140-2; FIPS 199; FIPS 200 and FedRAMP, Thales e-Security solutions are designed to help you comply with:

The Vormetric Data Security Platform

The Vormetric Data Security Platform from Thales e-Security is the only solution with a single extensible framework for protecting data-at-rest under the diverse requirements of Federal Agencies across the broadest range of OS platforms, databases, cloud environments and big data implementations. The result is low total cost of ownership, as well as simple, efficient deployment and operation.

Vormetric Transparent Encryption

Vormetric Transparent Encryption from Thales e-Security provides file and volume level data-at-rest encryption, secure key management and access controls required by regulation and compliance regimes.

Vormetric Key Management

Vormetric Key Management from Thales e-Security enables centralized management of encryption keys for other environments and devices including KMIP compatible hardware, Oracle and SQL Server TDE master keys and digital certificates.

Vormetric Data Security Intelligence

Vormetric Data Security Intelligence from Thales e-Security provides another level of protection from malicious insiders, privileged users, APTs and other attacks that compromise data by delivering the access pattern information that can identify an incident in progress.

Vormetric Application Encryption

Vormetric Application Encryption enables agencies to easily build encryption capabilities into internal applications at the field and column level.

Vormetric Tokenization with Dynamic Masking

Vormetric Tokenization with Dynamic Masking from Thales e-Security lets administrators establish policies to return an entire field tokenized or dynamically mask parts of a field. With the solution’s format-preserving tokenization capabilities, you can restrict access to sensitive assets, yet at the same time, format the protected data in a way that enables many users to do their jobs.

Vormetric Cloud Encryption Gateway

The Vormetric Cloud Encryption Gateway from Thales e-Security safeguards files in cloud storage environments. It encrypts sensitive data before it is saved to the cloud enabling security teams to establish the visibility and control they need around sensitive assets. Because Vormetric’s Cloud Encryption Gateway relies on Thales e-Security's Vormetric Data Security Manager for encryption key and policy management, customers never relinquish control of cryptographic keys to the provider and data never leaves the enterprise premises unencrypted or unaccounted for.

Research and Whitepapers : Vormetric Cloud Encryption Gateway

As organizations grow increasingly reliant upon cloud storage offerings like Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Box and Caringo, the need to secure sensitive data in these environments grows increasingly urgent. With the Vormetric Cloud Encryption Gateway, organizations can encrypt files in cloud storage, enabling a secure and compliant file sharing and storage environment....
