Exostar Updates Enterprise Collaboration Tool for Govt Security Standard Compliance - top government contractors - best government contracting eventExostar has updated its multi-tenant enterprise collaboration platform to comply with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's security controls and Defense Department‘s cybersecurity directives.

The company said Tuesday its collaboration technology offering is a software-as-a-service platform designed to help defense companies, subcontractors and suppliers share files that contain covered defense information with other organizations in accordance with NIST's special publication 800-171 standard and DoD’s requirements for network and local access.

NIST SP 800-171 is part of DoD's Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement 252.204-7012 provision that details how contractors and their supply chains should protect CDI from potential cyber attacks.

“The DFARS provision and NIST SP 800-171 standard reflect the need for protection to extend beyond systems and networks to local devices such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and USBs,“ said Doug Russell, vice president of business solutions at Exostar.

Exostar's collaboration platform has a multi-factor authentication function, digital rights management tool and online single sign-on access and is hosted in data centers in the U.S. and the U.K.

Some of the defense contractors that use Exostar's collaboration tool include Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, Airbus and Huntington Ingalls Industries.
