DoD Contractors Leverage SteelCloud Technology to Automate CMMC Compliance
ASHBURN, Va., April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SteelCloud LLC, a leading STIG and CIS compliance automation software developer, announced today that they now have a sixth contractor who has chosen to leverage its ConfigOS compliance software to automate the cyber hygiene requirements of the DoD's CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) initiative.
CMMC is a DoD mandate that will require some 300,000 DoD contractors to be certified to a CCMC Level based on the information they process. CMMC Level 3 or higher carries significant configuration management and access system-level controls that can be automated using SteelCloud's patented software. It is estimated that more than 20,000 contractors will need to be certified at CMMC Level 3 or higher over the next four years.
"We are excited to provide critical automation technology to contractors looking for the most cost- effective way to meet their CMMC mandate to harden their infrastructures to protect critical government information," said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO. "DoD contractors required to achieve CMMC Level 3+ are finding the process of getting and staying compliant to be a daunting proposition without automation. For more than a decade, SteelCloud compliance software has been implemented across the DoD, and we are glad to assist Defense Industrial Base contractors with their CMMC compliance rquirements," he added.
