Managed IT & Cyber
Security Services for Government Contractors

We know that Federal government contractors face a challenging environment. This holds especially true for small to mid-sized firms, who are squeezed between giant competitors and the need to meet stringent federal regulations for cyber security as outlined in NIST 800-171. 

Ntiva has designed cost-effective solutions with the goal of helping Primes and their subs compete successfully while meeting their regulatory requirements. 

Cyber security services are a focal point of our managed IT services work with federal contractors, and we routinely deploy the safeguards needed to comply with DFARS and NIST 800-171, including:

  • System Security Plans
  • NIST 800-171 Assessments and Remediation
  • Intrusion Detection and Response
  • Advanced Endpoint Protection
  • Microsoft Office 365 Gov
  • Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery
  • IT User Policies
  • Security Incident Response Plan
  • Multi Factor Authentication
  • Security Awareness Training

Achieving NIST 800-171 Compliance with Ntiva –
3 Step Program

Assessment/SSP/POAM

The first step is to conduct a detailed assessment of your current environment. A system security plan (SSP) will be created to document the security measures that need to be put in place, and a Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M) will outline the action items needed to reach compliance.

Remediation

The next step is to address the items called out in the POA&M. This could be as simple as implementing a few minor changes, or as complex as doing an overhaul on outdated systems.

Compliance Monitoring
& Maintenance

Finally, ongoing cyber security monitoring and incident response can be provided by Ntiva. Cyber incidents must be reported to the DoD within 72 hours, and all systems and controls must be constantly assessed and maintained to remain compliant.

Learn how we helped this DoD contractor
comply with NIST 800-171

A Rosslyn, VA based defense contractor began facing pressure from its primary client to provide evidence of compliance with DFARS and NIST 800-171. Their contracts were at risk, and they looked to Ntiva for help providing a response on short notice.

We stepped in quickly to gather information and developed a System Security Plan, followed by a detailed plan of action. New security measures were implemented, including an AlienVault log management and auditing solution monitored by our 24x7 security operations center, all part of our Managed Cyber Security Services.

Our client went from concern about its contracts in jeopardy, to a strong plan and rapid progress toward NIST 800-171 alignment in just 8 weeks.

More importantly, these were not cookie-cutter solutions, but tailored to the client’s business, budget, and compliance requirements. Ntiva continues to provide Managed IT Services for the client, in order to relieve their internal IT team of daily maintenance tasks that were preventing them from focusing on more important projects.
