Acendre’s Federal Talent Management Suite Advances to Meet NIST “High High Moderate” Security Standards

Federal Recruitment and Performance Management Cloud SaaS Solutions Add to Security Credentials by Meeting NIST’s Requirements of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability

Arlington, VA, March 20, 2018 – Acendre, a worldwide leader in secure, cloud-based talent management software, today announced that its automated, modern, secure Acendre Talent Management Suite has been enhanced to meet the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) High High Moderate security classification. This classification specifies NIST’s baseline of stringent requirements of confidentiality, integrity and availability. By meeting these requirements, Acendre now provides an even higher level of security assurance to its customers by meeting the highest standards of data protection.

NIST is a measurement standards laboratory, and a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce, with a mission to promote innovation and industrial competitiveness.

The NIST impact definitions for each security objective and Acendre’s alignment to these objectives are as follows:

Confidentiality: preserving authorized restrictions on information access and disclosure, including means for protecting personal privacy and proprietary information.
Acendre protects against any unauthorized disclosure of information that could have severe or catastrophic adverse effects on organizational operations, organizational assets or individuals.

Integrity: guarding against improper information modification or destruction, and includes ensuring information non-repudiation and authenticity.
Acendre protects against unauthorized modification or destruction of information that could have severe or catastrophic adverse effects on organizational operations, organizational assets or individuals.

Availability: ensuring timely and reliable access to and use of information.
Acendre protects against the disruption of access to or use of information or an information system that could have a severe adverse effect on organizational operations, organizational assets or individuals.

Following the recent announcement of achieving “In Process” status with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), Acendre continues to separate its HR and human capital solutions from other offerings in the federal talent management market. FedRAMP leverages the NIST security classifications to define applicable baseline security requirements.

“Acendre is committed to meeting the federal government’s high standards for protection and integrity of agencies’ data and systems,” said Franco Antico, vice president, architecture and security for Acendre. “By meeting these security requirements from NIST and following our recent announcement of achieving ‘In Process’ status with FedRAMP, we further validate our ongoing commitment to the security of our customers. Acendre continues to separate itself in the federal recruitment, hiring and performance management spaces.”
