Cocoon Data’s Senior Engineer of US GovCloud Operations, Nick Martin, was invited as a guest speaker to discuss CMMC with Atlas Systems Integration and Support Technologies President, Narada Overton. 

With the focus on SafeShare, Mr. Martin provided a detailed demonstration and discussion with Mr. Overton regarding how SafeShare can help organizations meet CMMC requirements. 

“The great thing about SafeShare, is it’s super easy to use. You don’t need to be an IT guy to start providing access controls, audit logs for your small shop. We have customers that their job is not in IT admin, they’re a small mom and pop shop and they can use SafeShare to help secure regulated data very easily.” – Nick Martin.

Safeshare provides truly granular access controls in an easy-to-use interface that empowers organizations to easily manage regulated data and reduces the cost of CMMC compliance. 

 

How does SafeShare help with CMMC?


As a SafeShare administrator you are in an overwatch position with the data in your organization’s care. You can enforce access control policies for data owners to abide by, monitor the audit logs, create clearances for data classifications and control data sharing with approved Whitelisted organizations/individuals.

 

How many CMMC practices does SafeShare help satisfy?


SafeShare helps organizations satisfy 37 CMMC practices within maturity levels 1 through 3, which is 29% of the overall requirements. This aids organizations in reducing scoping requirements and overall cost.

Geofencing can be used as MFA


“Geofencing can be used as a multi-factor authentication alternative if you can’t use multi-factor tokens on your phone. So, if you can’t install an app on your phone, and you can’t receive text messages, how are you supposed to satisfy multi factor authentication right? You can use geofencing as an alternative… Let’s say there’s a use case where a military facility doesn’t let people install applications on their phone, or doesn’t even let them have those phones inside those facilities – you can whitelist a facility, let’s say the White House in this example, and then you can satisfy that multifactor authentication because you have to know, first of all, where that location is, and then you have to physically be there.” – Nick Martin

 

No Software Solution can meet all CMMC requirements


With reference to the mandatory CMMC introduction, Overton states “If you can take 25% of that heavy lifting off the shoulders of a customer and let them know – that software can’t solve everything. Software can’t solve your physical access, software can’t solve your training requirements, it can’t solve a lot of those things and that’s just understood. But if you can take 25% of the burden off the shoulders of the customer, that’s a huge lift.”

So while Safeshare (or any other software solution) can’t solve all your CMMC requirements, it can provide you with the correct tools to manage and protect your sensitive data in line with CMMC standards.

GCC High isn’t the only solution


According to DFARS 7012, CMMC and CMMC AB there is no requirement to move to an expensive solution like GCC High. An organization can meet the new regulation at an affordable price with SafeShare at $15 per month / per user – cancel anytime.
