NDAA and TAA Compliance

In order to remain compliant with cybersecurity requirements, ClackTECH / CLackLINK will only sell or provide hardware certified NDAA or TAA compliant. This ensures no spyware can infiltrate our networks from the inside, which could compromise the data integrity of our clients’ and their clients’ data. The use of NDAA and/or TAA compliant hardware is determined on a client-by-client basis.

NDAA Requirements

We install in all of our networks a minimum of NDAA compliant hardware. We have many relationships with corporations and private individuals based on our level of expertise, and unwillingness to compromise the security of client data. For this reason, we will kindly refuse offers to install hardware made by Hikvision and its subsidiaries (LTS, Hunt Electronics, and Hikvision OEM/unbranded models), Dahua and its subsidiaries, Hytera, Aventura, Huawei, ZTE, and Kaspersky Lab.

As an approved MSSP of multiple franchise based corporations, we are unable to accommodate requests to install unapproved hardware. Our camera systems by Uniview Technologies are NDAA compliant, however are not TAA compliant as they are owned and manufactured in People’s Republic of China (PRC). Holding the NDAA compliance ensures the hardware does not contain spyware that would return information such as client usage, geographical locations, payment data, facial data, nor other personal browsing data back into the hands of hackers.

TAA Requirements

If your business is involved with providing, manufacturing, or installing items under a GSA Schedule Contract (or for DOD), you must comply with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA). To comply with these measures, we offer hardware and surveillance equipment that is certified under the TAA and will pass all inspections necessary. TAA is more strict than NDAA, and such items offered under NDAA will not be offered should you be required to abide by TAA compliances. products manufactured in People’s Republic of China (PRC) are not authorized for use in these environments. We will not install non-TAA compliant hardware in these environments, and can provide for you affidavits, logs, and photos to backup all installations. Our first goal in these environments is to protect the integrity and security of the citizens of the United States, a goal of which we do not take lightly, nor will cut corners. TAA compliant hardware may cost more than NDAA compliant hardware. Our camera systems
