Exostar’s Managed Microsoft 365 for CMMC

Secure access and protection of CUI, which is exchanged between companies, is key to ensuring that the DIB continues to provide innovative solutions that are critical to maintaining our edge in National Security. Exostar’s Managed Microsoft 365 solution for CMMC is geared to help SMBs protect CUI and maintain DoD compliance without an outlay of huge cost.

Challenge

Most large contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) have invested in a substantial cloud platform and comprehensive security measures to comply with the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement 252.204- 7012 (DFARS), NIST 800-171 guidelines, International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), and the impending CMMC 2.0.

But the cost, and resources required are a much larger undertaking for a small to medium size business (SMB)  – that needs to access and share CUI information – and that are subject to the same risk and regulatory oversight.  These companies often lack access to the skilled personnel and resources that are needed to address complex cyber security challenges.

Solution

Secure access and protection of CUI, which is exchanged between companies, is key to ensuring that the DIB continues to provide innovative solutions that are critical to maintaining our edge in National Security. Exostar’s Managed Microsoft 365 for CMMC solution is geared to help businesses of all sizes protect CUI without an outlay of huge cost.

This solution is based on Microsoft Teams hosted in Microsoft 365 GCC High specifically designed for the Defense Industrial Base on The Exostar Platform. This comprehensive cloud service provides security, intelligence, mobility, and collaboration capabilities that help protect data and increase efficiencies, while meeting Department of Defense requirements. Exostar has integrated its identity and access management module with GCC High to extend the concept of an Exostar organizational boundary. Effectively creating an secure enclave for an organization inside the GCC High tenant.

Benefits

  • Provides enterprise-level security to small-to-medium size partners in the DIB who have less than 100 users.
  • Partners can use their existing Exostar MFA credentials and user management tools enabling a rapid onboarding process to new tenants.
  • Exostar will provide the requisite security controls to ensure compliance with CMMC 2.0, removing the need to use internal tech resources for setup and configuration.
  • Enterprises can choose to migrate only those users that need to meet compliance requirements for sharing Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
  • Exostar creates a secure workspace for SMB users in a GCC High Tenant, and automatically provisions the users to this space, removing the burden of setup and management.
