Compliance Frameworks

oak9 incorporates your compliance and regulatory requirements to provide security design guidance for your application. We have out-of-the box support for a number of industry standards, compliance frameworks and regulatory requirements that you want your application to adhere to.
Selecting your compliance frameworks is an important step in ensuring that oak9 understands the regulatory and compliance needs of your application. If your organization provides services within a unique regulatory environment, this will drive unique security requirements that oak9 will ensure your application addresses. Some compliance frameworks have different levels of rigor (e.g., NIST SP 800-53 has High, Medium and Low levels; HITRUST has increasing levels of rigor from 1-3). oak9 will ensure that your application architecture aligns with the security requirements of a given industry standard or compliance framework to satisfy the level of security rigor required.
Another advantage of selecting the applicable compliance frameworks is that oak9 will provide visibility into how your application architecture is fulfilling your compliance frameworks. Design gaps will be mapped to selected compliance frameworks along with oak9’s technical security requirements. Oak9 can generate reports for auditors and compliance professionals to provide real time compliance and security information about your application.
