LightEdge Receives NIST 800-53 Certification

DES MOINES, IA – October 21, 2020 – LightEdge, a leading provider of compliant cloud and colocation services, today announced they received NIST 800-53 certification, making them a clear choice for companies seeking a cloud service provider to help them gain the certifications needed for federal projects.

“LightEdge is now further able to support our FISMA and FedRAMP compliant customers,” says LightEdge CSO, Michael Hannan. “This strengthens our commitment to providing secure and reliable services at all of our facilities and to our clients across the most highly regulated verticals.”

NIST Special Publication 800-53 outlines a catalogue of privacy and security controls applicable to all U.S. federal information systems. This new set of controls was created to reflect the high standards of data protection necessary for companies contracting through a federal agency. NIST 800-53 contains many of the controls outlined in a FedRAMP assessment, making it a tangible step companies can take toward getting ATO from multiple agencies, saving them time and improving their bottom line.

LightEdge’s NIST 800-53 certification is transferrable to customers, getting them one step closer to their own FedRAMP certifications. This certification is one among many that clients can inherit through LightEdge Compliance as a Service to assist in successful audits and certification processes, including ISO 20000-1, ISO 27001, SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II and SOC 3, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and HITRUST.
