Cybersecurity Consulting Firm, Aristi Technologies, Accredited as a CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO)

HERNDON, Va. -- Aristi Technologies, Inc. announced that it is among the first firms to become an accredited Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) and Registered Provider Organization (RPO) by the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB). C3PAOs are the only organizations authorized to conduct CMMC assessments.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) created the CMMC program to enhance the protection of sensitive data, namely, controlled unclassified information (CUI) and federal contract information (FCI), within the Defense Department's multi-tiered supply chain of more than 300,000 companies. CMMC is specifically designed for small and mid-sized suppliers as they are more vulnerable to cyber threats in the supply chain.

These small and mid-sized contractors are increasingly being targeted by nation-state attackers; they have limited internal resources and cybersecurity expertise to adequately secure their systems and safeguard sensitive customer data.

"Aristi is honored to achieve C3PAO and RPO credentials, demonstrating our commitment to the CMMC program in supporting the DoD's mission to secure the defense supply chain," said Neel Gopalani, Aristi's vice president, and a CMMC-AB Registered Practitioner (RP). "Our CMMC practice is a natural extension of our cybersecurity compliance and assessment services that we've provided for more than a decade."

Over the last year, Aristi has helped small and mid-sized government contractors prepare for complying with CMMC security requirements. Aristi's CMMC consulting services include: boundary scoping, gap assessments, remediation support, security documentation and readiness assessments. As a C3PAO and RPO, Aristi will continue to help federal contractors effectively navigate the DoD's new cybersecurity certification process.
