Alternatives to Accreditation Software
Most small businesses manage NIST SP 800-171 implementation ineffectively through spreadsheets or general-purpose compliance software labeled as CMMC software rather than purpose-built accreditation software. These industry solutions have been developed within only the last 6-9 months. Ignyte has been operating for 5+ years in accreditation software. Alternatives lead to:
  • Incomplete software features
  • Additional charges for development (enhanced features)
  • Lack of C&A, ATO & approval processes domain knowledge
  • Developed with a spreadsheet checklist in mind
  • Diminishing value over time
