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.

Frequently Asked Questions About NIST 800-171

NIST SP 800-171, Rev. 2, is a set of recommended security requirements for protecting the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), in non-government systems and organizations.
What is the difference between NIST CSF and NIST SP 800-171?
NIST SP 800-171 is more specific than NIST CSF as it specifically pertains to government contractors. Companies that store or process sensitive information that is considered unclassified on behalf of the U.S. government must comply with NIST SP 800-171.
