TSI Joins Exostar’s CMMC Partner Network to Help DIB Companies Navigate Evolving DoD Cybersecurity Requirements
TSI’s Clients to Benefit from Exostar’s Robust, Easy-to-Use DoD Cybersecurity Compliance Products
FOXBORO MA-June 9th, 2022:
TSI, an IT Managed Services (MSP) and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP), today announced it has joined Exostar’s CMMC partner network to help DoD contractors navigate and fulfill their Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) cybersecurity compliance requirements, including NIST 800-171 and CMMC 2.0.
By leveraging Exostar’s powerful application, Certification Assistant, TSI will be able to provide its client base with a complete compliance and security program management solution that will help contractors throughout the DoD supply chain manage these extensive cybersecurity requirements, ensure their ability to keep and pursue future sales opportunities, and improve their overall cybersecurity maturity.
The Exostar Platform supports exclusive communities within highly-regulated industries where organizations securely collaborate, share information, and operate compliantly. Nearly half of the 300,000 enterprises within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) – including 98 of the top 100 – transact business over The Exostar Platform. In conjunction with partners like TSI, Exostar helps members of the DIB strengthen security, reduce expenditures, and raise productivity to advance their digital transformation initiatives.
TSI’s status as a CMMC registered provider organization (RPO) will also provide customers in Exostar’s community with a readily-available support and consultative resource to help guide contractors toward fulfilling the NIST 800-171 and CMMC requirements, helping make the compliance implementation process a far more efficient and effective undertaking. Because RPOs like TSI will need to themselves adhere to CMMC Maturity Level 2 practices, it will be critical that organizations requiring NIST 800-171 or CMMC compliance partner with IT services companies that can verifiably address those requirements and have first-hand expertise to help ensure a favorable self-attestation or external auditing outcome.
About the CMMC:
The Department of Defense (DoD) has migrated to a new cybersecurity model designed to assess and enhance the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and its supply chain. The DoD’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will also serve as the verification mechanism to ensure these appropriate levels of cybersecurity practices and processes are in place throughout the DIB contractor space that currently consists of over 300,000 contractors.
