Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the method the US Government uses to audit compliance with NIST SP 800-171. Various government agencies, including the Department of Defense (DoD) contractors, need to meet these requirements. CMMC replaces the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), which was not widely adopted.
Conservative estimates reveal up to 300,000 organizations will be in the scope of CMMC. Many of those are not traditional defense contractors. Many potentially impacted organizations are due to third parties’ trickle-down effect that can affect the confidentiality of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) where it is stored, transmitted, or processed.
There are five levels of CMMC, and each has its own specific set of practices that will be in scope during a CMMC audit.
The 5 Certification Levels of CMMC
Why do customers choose SecureCircle to meet CMMC requirements?
SecureCircle helps organizations meet over 40 controls and practices across eight domains needed to obtain Level 3 certification.
Transparent and frictionless to users and applications. SecureCircle meets CMMC requirements without impacting users. This transparent approach means that user behavior does not need to change, and applications do not need to integrate in any way to take advantage of the control and security SecureCircle delivers.
Rapid and simple deployment. SecureCircle is a SaaS and endpoint agent architecture, enabling simple and fast deployment. No DLP rules to create or alerts to manage. Just define a Circle and allow users and applications to access data. There is no dependency on discovery or classification.
Reduce cost and complexity. SecureCircle has a simple per-user pricing model that reduces our customers’ costs. SecureCircle further reduces costs and reduces complexity by avoiding the need for multiple products, software integrations, and ongoing security controls administration.
How SecureCircle Addresses CMMC
SecureCircle’s persistent data security and frictionless impact on users and applications allow SecureCircle to be applied to broad data segments rather than only securing the most critical data. Additionally, SecureCircle enables granular control and permissions for users, admins, groups, devices, applications, and networks. The combination of broad features and granular controls allow organizations to configure SecureCircle to meet security and compliance requirements.
