VisibleThread Statement on NIST 800 -171
NIST 800-171 applies in the context of Federal Contractors dealing with CUI (Controlled Unclassified Information).
Our VisibleThread Docs cloud environment (hosted with Rackspace) is not NIST 800-171 certified.
For VisibleThread customers requiring NIST 800-171, they should deploy VT Docs either on-premise (i.e. behind their firewall) or in a NIST certified cloud hosting facility (e.g. AWS). We recommend using AWS (Amazon Web Services) which is fully NIST and Fedramp certified.
To find out more about deploying to AWS, follow these links.
