CMMC Assessments by Ascend Technologies

Protecting Federal Contract Information In Your Organization

Our Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Assessments are designed to empower organizations with the necessary tools and expertise to achieve and maintain compliance with requirements.

Understanding CMMC and Its Significance

The CMMC is a unified standard developed by the Department of Defense (DoD) to safeguard controlled unclassified information (CUI) within the defense industrial base (DIB). It is crucial for organizations involved in defense contracts to meet requirements, ensuring robust cybersecurity measures are in place to protect sensitive information.

Companies that achieve CMMC certification can expect to see a 20% increase in their contract awards.
