NIST 800-171

Implement and Maintain NIST SP 800-171 Security Protections

Streamline NIST SP 800-171 processes and continuously monitor Controlled Unclassified Information protections.

Automate the NIST SP 800-171 scoping process

Protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Monitor Compliance

Companies working with government agencies and maintaining CUI often have contract provisions requiring them to implement NIST SP 800-171 protections. With Drata’s platform, you have quick visibility into what controls you have, which ones you still need to put in place, and whether everything functions as intended.


Using Drata’s controls, you can get compliant faster, and our platform continuously monitors your security posture to ensure continued compliance. To prove that you take a security-first approach, you can give agency contacts our shareable security report or leverage Trust Center for continuous control reporting.

A Single-Source Of Compliance And Monitoring Documentation

NIST SP 800-171 costs your company time and money, especially when you use various tools for business operations and compliance monitoring. Integrating your controls into Drata reduces compliance costs by enabling you to consolidate all your compliance activities and documentation.


Using our shared controls framework and central readiness dashboard, you can build on your current compliance program, gain visibility into gaps, and implement new controls based on our platform’s library.

Create Custom Controls While Still Leveraging Automation

No two companies, IT stacks, and compliance needs are the same. With Drata, you can build your framework based on your scope of work, using either our pre-built, cross-mapped controls or by creating your own.


When you map these to our automated tests, you get the best of both, customization and automation. Further, with our Jira integrations, you can automate the delegation and tracking of compliance-related tasks.
