Quzara has partnered with Summit 7 Systems and CORTAC Group to help members of the defense industrial base comply with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, a Department of Defense program that sets new cybersecurity standards.
The companies have formed the CMMC Consortium that will guide stakeholders and advise them on compliance efforts by providing regulatory and cybersecurity expertise, Quzara said Monday.
The CMMC consortium will offer advisory, architecture and services to support compliance with CMMC, which aims to standardize the security controls of the defense supply chain.
The organization brings cloud security, zero trust and government security expertise from the three companies. Quzara is a managed security services provider, as CORTAC offers compliance expertise and Summit 7 specializes in managed information technology services.
The consortium will also work with Microsoft to help companies maintain CMMC compliance through multiple defense industrial initiatives.
"Creating a core CMMC Consortium focus combines resources with a breadth of skills to architect, administer, manage and securely monitor these environments," said Saif Rahman, co-founder and managing director at Quzara.
