Streamline Your ITAR Compliance Process With Comprehensive
Governance and Protection for File and Email Data
The Kiteworks platform provides comprehensive governance and protection for government contractors to ensure ITAR compliance. Kiteworks also meets all security requirements listed in NIST 800-171 and FedRAMP for controlled unclassified information (CUI) protection. It includes features such as secure web forms for easy data upload and reporting, compliant encryption in the cloud, and 24/7 content protection. Kiteworks helps organizations check boxes for ITAR compliance by facilitating internal audits, maintaining accurate records, properly classifying and marking items and technical data, and reporting any violations or potential violations.
Comprehensive Audit Logging for Streamlined Tracking
Maintain accurate records of all activities related to ITAR-controlled items and technical data with user-friendly tracking displays, allowing you to see who has accessed, edited, or uploaded content via secure shared folders, secure email, or SFTP. Plus, our administrative interfaces provide human-readable dashboards and custom reports, allowing audit logs to serve the dual purpose of ensuring that an organization can investigate data breaches and provide evidence of compliance during ITAR and other audits.
Enforce Security of ITAR-related Data With Secure Web Forms
Kiteworks allows you to conveniently upload your sensitive information while your IT professionals set policies to protect the data and ensure regulatory compliance. Admins can quickly create secure web forms they can trust with the Kiteworks point-and-click authoring tool, knowing they use the security, role-based permissions and compliance policies enforced by the platform. This enables simple and secure submissions, which reduces errors and enforces security and compliance automatically with platform logs of all form submissions for full visibility in audits, reporting, CISO Dashboard, SIEM, and eDiscovery.
Securely Classify and Protect Your Sensitive Technical Data
Properly classify and mark items and technical data that are subject to ITAR with ease. Sensitive technical data can be classified and tagged, securely segmented using user-based access policies, and protected with zero-trust principles to keep unauthorized hands off your CUI. From view-only access to watermarking, advanced security measures ensure your data is safe and secure while you enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having only authorized access to your most sensitive information.
Upgrade Security Operations With Unified Audit Log and Alerts
By merging and standardizing entries from all communication channels, our unified audit log and alerts save valuable time for security operations and help compliance teams prepare for audits. AI technology scans for anomalies, including potential data breaches, and alerts via email and the audit log. With our secure systems, all necessary logging is included to serve as a forensic tool, helping you quickly identify and address any security issues. Kiteworks’ immutable audit logs ensure attacks are detected sooner and provide the necessary evidence for forensics, enabling efficient mandatory reporting of any ITAR data violations or potential violations to the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) in a timely manner.
Frequently Asked Questions
ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) is a set of regulations that controls the export and import of defense-related articles, services, and technologies. ITAR is administered and enforced by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), which is overseen by the U.S. Department of State. The Bureau of Industry and Security of the Department of Commerce also participates in ITAR enforcement, as does U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Failure to comply with ITAR can result in fines, imprisonment, and loss of contracts.
ITAR applies to U.S.-based companies and individuals who design, manufacture, export, import, or conduct other activities related to defense articles and services. This includes companies involved in the production, development, or integration of defense systems, as well as any other organization or individual that works with parts, components, technical data, or defense services. Generally, any business that works with weapons or other components controlled by the United States Munitions List (USML) must comply with ITAR regulations.
ITAR critical content refers to any information that is subject to ITAR regulations. This includes technical data, software, blueprints, schematics, designs, and other content related to defense articles or services.
Government contractors can protect ITAR critical content by implementing comprehensive governance and protection policies for file and email data. This includes controlling access to sensitive information, encrypting data in transit and at rest, and monitoring and auditing file and email activity to ensure compliance.
Failure to protect ITAR critical content can result in fines, imprisonment, and loss of contracts. Failure to protect ITAR critical content may also damage an organization’s reputation and credibility, leading to a loss of business opportunities.
Government contractors can streamline their ITAR compliance process by using tools and technologies that automate compliance processes and provide comprehensive governance and protection of file and email data. This includes using secure file sharing and collaboration platforms, implementing access controls and encryption, and leveraging AI and machine learning to detect and prevent data breaches.
