Achieving CMMC Level 3 and Beyond to
Mitigate Insider Threats in Government and Defense

With the migration to the Cloud, BYOD, and COVID19 creating a world-wide remote workforce, there truly is no perimeter anymore. Now more than ever, we need a seamless way to adapt our cyber defenses to also look towards the inside and proactively secure data.

For government and defense industry, the solution also has to scale to meet the demands of both the DOD and the critical infrastructure players and map to critical controls laid out in NIST 800-171, 800-53, and CMMC – primarily CMMC Levels 3-5.
