Product applicability guides

Connect with us

Coalfire provides expert cybersecurity oversight to companies that produce technology products and solutions. Our custom white papers provide the clarity, information, and, most importantly, technical guidance that only a third-party, independent, recognized expert can provide.


Take the mystery out of offering your product for cybersecurity compliance

Whether you produce Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), technology suites, network, storage, mobile, or cloud products, our white papers can help describe how and why your products can be used reliably for cybersecurity compliance. Specifically, our white papers answer these questions:

  • Can your products be used to help meet your customers’ regulatory compliance requirements?
  • Can you document and describe how your products are built securely and protect your customers’ data?
  • What does an expert in security think about your designs and their effectiveness?

 

Our white papers can focus on three aspects of your product or solution:

  • Product applicability – We review the technical controls supported by the product and render an opinion on the efficacy of using the product to comply with the requirements of a regulation.
  • Design and architecture – We review reference architectures as they are shown in design documents provided by the manufacturer. Our opinion adds “eyes of the assessor” viewpoints that enable readers to prepare for regulatory assessments and answer likely questions from their Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO).
  • Validation – For companies that create “center of excellence” reference architectures intended for customer proofs of concept, our validated reference architecture white papers expose an opinion formed by conducting a simulated assessment of the constructed environment. These papers provide a specific validation that the intended architecture may be built and successfully assessed.

We follow a rigorous and regulatory controls-based methodology to satisfy questions pertaining to PCI DSSHIPAA/HITECHFedRAMP, CJIS, ISO2700x, GDPR, FFIECFISMA, Sarbanes Oxley, and SOC, as well as information security best practices based on NIST 800-53, COBIT, and ISO frameworks.
