When COTS Isn’t Enough: Why You Need a NIST 800.171 Compliant Supplier Like Everight Position

The COTS Conundrum: In today’s digital landscape, Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) sensors seem like an easy button for compliances purposes. They’re readily available, cost-effective, and offer familiar functionality. But when it comes to identifying strategic suppliers, COTS alone isn’t enough.

Enter NIST 800.171 Compliance: This framework, developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), sets best practices for not only safeguarding CUI in nonfederal systems, but best practices for cyber and physical security in general. Compliance isn’t just a nice-to-have; it’s a vital layer of protection that goes beyond the inherent features of COTS products.
