In the above video, Ben Scully answers the question, “How does Avatara help DoD contractors meet CMMC requirements?” In summary, Avatara’s DoD Platform has become a go-to solution for DoD contractors seeking an all-inclusive and cost-effective compliance solution. With our extensive experience in working under DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) and ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) for over a decade, we have developed robust policies, procedures, and compliance expertise. Our platform offers a streamlined process for contractors to adopt necessary security measures, providing them with the evidence and support required for audits. By minimizing upfront investments and enabling rapid onboarding, Avatara has become an obvious choice for DoD contractors who face the risk of losing a substantial portion of their business if they do not meet the rigorous CMMC requirements.
