Email and Data Protection to Meet Privacy and Compliance Needs
CMMC contains 17 domains, with the six highlighted in the visual below accounting for the majority of the requirements. For organizations seeking level three certification, the focus is all about protecting controlled unclassified information or CUI. While it's important to know the details of the requirements. At a high level, the focus is on controlling access to see what to prevent unauthorized use and protecting its confidentiality and auditing activities of users who have access to CUI to strengthen the accountability and improve the organization's ability to respond.
When we look at contractors workflows that handle CUI, email and files are frequently used to collaborate with supply chain partners. Traditional approaches to email and file protection leave CUI at risk of unauthorized access, both internally as CUI is shared between departments, but especially outside the network, as it is shared with contractors, partners and other external parties. The lack of persistent protection and visibility prevent organizations from controlling CUI throughout its lifecycle.
At Virtru. our vision is to protect CUI everywhere it's created and shared to meet CMMC requirements, empower innovation throughout the defense supply chain. CUI can be shared securely and seamlessly between internal departments and external suppliers and other authorized parties with data-centric protection, ensuring that confidentiality and persistent visibility, ultimately promoting an audit and accountability, and really helping defense contractors future proof their cybersecurity stance.
