    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.

    See here https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/security/need-nist-compliance-in-the-aws-cloud-aws-compliance-has-you-covered-nist-800-171/

    To find out more about deploying to AWS, follow these links.
