Compliance Software: 800-171

Four compliance software tools that help with NIST 800-171 compliance are Cuick Trac, The Cyberstrong Platform, ComplyUp, and Neqter Labs. Ratings and reviews were not found for Cuick Trac, ComplyUp, or Neqter Labs, hence, we used a quote by customers. Full details may be found in the attached spreadsheet.

Summary

Research Strategy

When looking for software that provides NIST 800-171 solutions, we looked through review sites such as G2, Trustpilot, Finances Online, Software Suggest, Featured Customer, and Capterra. We also direct research to make sure that they provide NIST 800-171 compliance solutions by looking at how they phrase the purpose of their software and reviews speaking of how their software helped their company achieve compliance. We were able to define what each software does, as well as making sure that none that we found had other features (although parent companies provided other services such as Cuick Trac's parent Beryllium). However, we were unable to find the ratings through this strategy for ComplyUp NIST 800-171 and Neqter Labs. Even though we found Cuick Trac on G2, there were no reviews found. This is why we had to change strategies.

Our next strategy was to look at social media websites and community boards such as Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. We did this because these websites would provide real opinion from actual people who work at companies that use the particular product. However, in this strategy, we only found Reddit posts for Cuick Trac and Neqter Labs, and we were unable to verify that the respondents on these posts actually used the products. Because of this, we changed strategy again.

With this strategy, we looked for case studies and testimonials. We did this in the hopes that the case studies would mention a rating that they give to the product, no matter how arbitrary it may be. While we were unable to find a star or numerical rating in this manner, we found quotes and snippets giving high praise for Cuick Trac, ComplyUp NIST 800-171, and Neqter Labs. Hence, we decided to use these quotes in lieu of a numerical rating. Plus, just like actual reviews, there is a reasoning behind each testimonial and case study as to why they love the product. This is why we think this was a great replacement for actual ratings.
