Share Article

Tier-3 announced that its Huntsman® intelligent SIEM solution now includes (out of the box) an extensive compliance monitoring pack to support the US Federal FISMA legislation requirements. More specifically, Huntsman® supports the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-53 that specifies the controls that should be in place within federal agencies based on their risk assessments.

Huntsman® now provides unbeatable capabilities to meet the audit and logging requirements of the NIST standard.

Huntsman® is widely used in compliance-driven environments such as defense, government and public sector networks in many countries. The inclusion of the compliance pack that meets the requirements of US legislation and standards is key for the US market.

The Huntsman® FISMA compliance pack includes a set of pre-defined real-time alerts and an extensive library of queries/reports that map to specific control areas. In addition, the continuously updated compliance monitoring dashboard displays the status of alerts that relate to those controls. For more information see the Tier-3 FISMA web page.

Huntsman® supports an extensive array of security controls, system and platform event logs, machine-data sources and asset and vulnerability feeds. It integrates closely with other best-of-breed cyber security solutions to provide operators with real-time actionable intelligence for incident identification and response.

Chris Warner, Tier-3’s Head of North America, said, “The Federal FISMA standards are now widely used across government, federal agencies, contractors and also in a range of Federal funded organizations. Huntsman® now provides unbeatable capabilities to meet the audit and logging requirements of the NIST standard and to gain valuable insight into control status, compliance alerts and the rising tide of cyber security attacks."
