Looking for an incredible CMMC assessment tool? Be sure to download the white paper at the bottom to get the most value from your cyber assessments for CMMC.
To better secure our country’s Defense Industrial Bases (DIB), the United States Department of Defense (DoD) released the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The main aim of the certification is to reduce the risk of losing sensitive Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI), thereby ensuring national economic security. In particular, the information that the CMMC protects is the data that flows down from a base to subcontractors working with a DIB. The DoD replaced the previous cybersecurity standard NIST SP 800-171, a self-assessment tool, and now requires all DIBs to assess and verify their level of cybersecurity maturity through a CMMC Third Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO).
Naturally, many bases want to ensure that they are CMMC compliant prior to a C3PAO showing up on site—that is why DIBs hire defense cybersecurity contractors to assess their current maturity model and ensure that the base can pass the auditor’s assessment. And rather than having to thumb through a lengthy PDF document, the majority of defense cybersecurity consultants would prefer to have an easy-to-use tool that walks them through CMMC assessment. That’s where SecurityGate.io comes in.
The SecurityGate.io platform was with years of experience securing organizations in the critical infrastructure sectors. Our team knows the ins and outs of cybersecurity compliance frameworks and has converted the guidance in the lengthy compliance document into logical, prebuilt workflows inside our CMMC assessment tool. By having access to these workflows out of the box, cybersecurity consultants are able to consistently assess DIBs across multiple locations.
Furthermore, because SecurityGate.io is a cloud-based platform, all that data is stored in a central repository, thus avoiding the problem of version control of Word documents or Excel spreadsheets between the client and your consulting team. In fact, with SecurityGate.io, your team can ditch the spreadsheet completely—all the information that is entered into our platform is accessible for instantaneous insights.
By using this CMMC assessment tool, defense cybersecurity consultants can reduce the time needed to perform an assessment at a DIB from weeks to days. This enables the consulting team to quickly ascertain the base’s cybersecurity maturity level and determine if they are at risk of going out of compliance before the C3PAO shows up to certify the environment. Furthermore, if there are issues causing the DIB to be out of compliance, the consulting team can quickly demonstrate ROI to their defense client by not only identifying the problematic areas, but also tracking the steps toward remediation. This enables consultants to demonstrate to their clients that the organization is better equipped to hit compliance objectives with the consulting team on board.
