CMMC Accreditation Board Certifies Ardalyst as Registered Provider Organization

Ardalyst - CMMC RPO

Ardalyst announced today it has earned Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Registered Provider Organization (RPO) certification. This new achievement fortifies the company’s position as the leader in CMMC compliance solutions and services meant to eliminate theft of intellectual property and sensitive information across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and Department of Defense (DoD) supply chain. 

“The RPO credential formally recognizes what our customers already know – DoD contractors and businesses big and small can trust Ardalyst to deliver solutions in an uncertain environment of cybersecurity compliance. Our approach to CMMC and NIST 800-171 compliance combines decades of expertise in cybersecurity, system administration, and business operations to deliver the most comprehensive solution at a reasonable cost,” said Michael Speca, President of Ardalyst. 

Ardalyst is postured to be the partner of choice for any company’s compliance journey. The RPO credential formally recognizes that Ardalyst can deliver solutions for DoD cybersecurity compliance requirements. Our managed cyber program approach to government compliance meets suppliers where they are, significantly reducing cost and complexity for their business. 

The CMMC model is a set of mandatory cybersecurity requirements that all DoD contractors handling controlled unclassified information must implement and then validate by an independent third party before contract award. The CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB), which is managing the CMMC rollout on behalf of the DoD, announced requirements and opened applications for multiple credentialed roles, including RPO, this summer. RPO status means Ardalyst has agreed to the CMMC-AB Code of Professional Conduct, can deliver non-certified CMMC consulting services, and is listed on the CMMC-AB Marketplace
