Steel Root Reference Architecture

Planning & Architecture

We'll help you define your system boundary and scope, including whether an enclave approach makes sense for you, and map your needs to the Steel Root Reference Architecture, our proven CMMC system design.

During implementation, we'll make sure everything is configured to CMMC specifications (our architecture has been vetted for CMMC compliance) in a way that doesn't impede business operations.

Any system needs management, and a CMMC-compliant one more than most. Our expert CMMC Managed Services will keep your business running and compliant.

Cybersecurity and compliance aren't one-and-done activities. We'll identify improvement areas and manage configuration updates to keep you compliant and secure without impacting your business.

Compliance Advisory Services

Advice

While you're still responsible for 20% of CMMC Level 2 assessment objectives, we're here to guide you through what you need to do.

Preparation

CMMC compliance only counts if you can prove it. We'll help you prepare the assessment evidence and documentation you need.

The C3 Shared Responsibility Model

When it comes to responsibility, we'll take the lion's "share"

We believe that Shared Responsibility comes with accountability, which is why we break down each of the 320 CMMC Level 2 assessment objectives using a RACI (responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed) model, leaving nothing to miscommunication or chance.

But we also know that you chose our professional CMMC solution because of our expertise. That’s why we insist on taking 80% of the responsibility and leaving just 20% (for example, background checks and physical security) to you. And if we’re being really honest, we want to help guide you through that too.
