We’re all waiting for the final, official word to come down regarding CMMC but the writing is clearly on the wall. CMMC 2.0 is a reality and will become a requirement for DoD contractors.
The only question is exactly when it will start showing up in contract language.Based on that inevitable scenario, our DoD contractor clients are asking us for guidance on when and what actions to take to prepare for CMMC 2.0 implementation. So please feel free to reach out to our team directly with any questions you might have.
We’ve also been getting a high volume of inquiries surrounding CMMC 2.0 compliance in the context of the Azure Government Community Cloud (GCC). So, we decided to provide some specific information on Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Enclaves in Azure Gov, GCC, and GCC High.
Here’s what you’ll learn in this post:
- What Are CUI Enclaves in the Azure Cloud?
- What’s the Difference between GCC and GCC High?
- What Does It All Mean For DoD Contractors?
- Where Can You Go For Actionable Information?
So let’s get started with some government cloud basics.
What Are CUI Enclaves in the Azure Cloud?
That’s an excellent summary. In the cloud, deploying your compute, storage, network, and application resources within a specific security domain means you enjoy the benefits of the certifications that the cloud services provider, including Azure, AWS, etc., has with DoD in that pool of resources.
That includes CMMC 2.0 compliance certifications.
Let’s break that down into bite-size chunks.
What Does It All Mean For Small And Medium-Size DoD Contractors?
But as we pointed out in a previous post:
Generally speaking, cloud solutions can be an excellent path to reach CMMC 2.0 maturity. The Azure cloud, for example, offers secure, scalable, compliant solutions.
Specifically, the Azure Cloud Platforms in Azure Gov, Government Community Cloud (GCC), and GCC High have certain features and functionality designed to meet specific CMMC 2.0 requirements.
Which environment is the best place to build your information enclave? For DoD contractors, GCC and GCC High are typically the most effective solutions for a number of reasons.
Let’s find out what the most optimal, cost-effective solution is for your business together.
