CUI data protection

Documents containing CUI and/or technical data stay protected wherever they’re shared throughout the defense supply chain with the Virtru Secure Reader.

Enable Private, Compliant Defense Supply Chain Workflows

Aerospace and defense (A&D) firms create and store intellectual property, controlled unclassified information (CUI) regulated by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), and technical data regulated by the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulation (EAR). In order to enable cloud-based defense supply chain collaboration workflows that drive innovation, sharing this data is a necessity, but it presents significant privacy and compliance risks.   

To maintain a competitive advantage and meet compliance standards for defense contracts, A&D firms must protect data everywhere it’s shared. Virtru provides persistent protection and granular controls to keep IP private and technical data and CUI compliant. Virtru adheres to security controls defined in NIST Special Publications 800-53 and 800-171 to help organizations prepare for CMMC Level 3 Maturity while offering end-to-end encryption to support ITAR and EAR compliance in the cloud. Virtru’s easy end-to-end encryption and granular access controls help you:

  • Protect CUI and technical data stored and shared via Gmail, Google Drive, and Outlook from access by unauthorized users.
  • Share protected email and encrypted files internally and with external primes, subcontractors, agencies, and other mission partners.
  • Support remote workers and distributed teams throughout defense supply chain collaboration workflows.
  • Boost user adoption with easy-to-use protections, seamless recipient access, and a quick installation process that gets users up and running in minutes.

Unlock Private, Compliant Defense Supply Chain Workflows



Prevent non-US entities from accessing technical data with easy end-to-end encryption for ITAR and EAR compliance. Protect CUI from unauthorized access to meet CMMC requirements aligned with NIST SP 800-171 and DFARS 252.204-7012.
