Our story

2013. A mid-sized defense contractor with an innovative IT team and a modest budget sets out to make their organization compliant with the new NIST SP 800-171 cybersecurity requirements. The new guidance, which will go into effect for all companies working with the U.S. Department of Defense in 2018, is convoluted and a nightmare to interpret.

Looking for answers, the team went to the open market. To their surprise, no turn-key solution existed. No one seemed to understand what NIST SP 800-171 was all about.

After more research, they realized that achieving best-in-class cyber security — including the ability to visualize whether a network had been compromised — would require a piecemeal approach. It would cost a small fortune. It would take time to implement.

Here was an opportunity. They took the initiative and started building a team to develop a system that didn’t exist. They hired cybersecurity professionals, teamed them with their existing engineers, broke down the cyber-compliance mandates into something logical and understandable.

From there, they built the solution they had dreamed of: a network appliance to address critical auditing and accountability requirements, and a policy builder tool to walk companies step-by-step through how to write best-in-class cyber policies and develop their system security plan.

All companies need to address cybersecurity, from the largest to the smallest. NeQter Labs has built a solution that brings cybersecurity compliance within reach for small to mid-sized companies. We know what you need, because we’ve been there.
