AIM helps Electro-Metrics with Cybersecurity Compliance

Success Story Powered by New York MEP Regional Center AIM


Electro-Metrics Corporation is a leading designer, producer, and integrator of antennas, sensors, and systems for broadband RF communications and testing. The machine shop and fabrication division manufactures precision machined products and provides contract manufacturing services. The Electro-Metrics manufacturing facilities support both our RF and Precision Fabrication divisions. Our capability to in-house manufacture and fully test our products allows us to meet quality expectations and provide rapid response to urgent needs.

Becoming NIST 800-171 was a very detailed but necessary process in today’s ever changing technological world and the increase of cyber attacks. We have now been able to prove to department of defense agencies that we can meet and maintain the requirements to protect our network and data and provide us with increased opportunities for contracts. Working with Paul LaPorte and AIM was a very smooth process and their knowledge of NIST 800-171 specifications made obtaining our certification that much more easier.
