April 20, 2021
ASHBURN, Va. SteelCloud LLC, a Security Technical Implementation Guide and Center for Internet Security compliance automation software developer, announced that they now have a sixth contractor who has chosen to leverage its ConfigOS compliance software to automate the cyber hygiene requirements of the Department of Defense's (DoD) Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) initiative.
According to officials, 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.
The company claims that ConfigOS is currently implemented in classified and unclassified environments, tactical and weapon ted by system programs, disconnected labs, and the commercial cloud. ConfigOS is client-less technology, requiring no software agents.
