Rethinking the Role of Compliance

Publicly-Traded Global Technology Company

A Fortune 500 company utilized Q-Compliance and Q-Audit to prepare for CMMC 2.0, automate manual processes, and achieve real-time continuous control monitoring.

The Department of Defense (DoD) is moving forward with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 program as a way to protect information across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and reinforce cooperation between the DoD and the industry in addressing evolving cyber threats. Any companies within the defense industrial supply chain must now show compliance with the practices and processes set forth by the CMMC program or risk losing a contract award if they are not meeting the standards of data protection within their CMMC level. The deadline for CMMC 2.0 is looming, and it is expected to be implemented by October 2025. With the help of Qmulos’ Q-Compliance and Q-Audit, a publicly traded, worldwide technology leader transformed its manual compliance operations and accomplished real-time, continuous monitoring across its global locations to meet its CMMC requirements.


Customer Challenge:

Companies are facing mounting pressure to implement robust and effective control mechanisms to protect sensitive data and maintain regulatory compliance. Continuous Control Monitoring (CCM) is a proactive approach to compliance and risk management that allows organizations to identify, assess, and remediate control failures and deficiencies in real time, ensuring that any deviations or anomalies are detected as they occur, enabling timely action to rectify potential compliance breaches or security incidents.

To meet CMMC 2.0 Level 2 requirements before the implementation deadline, the technology company sought a partner to help gather technical evidence across more than 100GB of data and transform its tedious, manual compliance processes into real-time, continuous monitoring and evidence gathering.


Qmulos Solution:

The company engaged Qmulos and its products Q-Compliance – a premier solution for real-time control visibility and automated collection of technical evidence – and Q-Audit – Qmulos’ real-time audit software that detects risks, attacks, anomalies, and outliers to highlight potential insider and external threats to high-value assets and users.

Both solutions were quickly rolled out across the organization, with Q-Compliance serving as its primary technical tool to provide continuous monitoring. The Qmulos professional services team helped make both solutions a part of the company’s user workflows and provided deployment and end user training to teams. A tailored User Adoption Guide provided by Qmulos provided additional support for the organization’s compliance team.

Qmulos ingested more than 100 GB of data and helped the global company uplevel its compliance program maturity and accelerate its journey to achieving converged continuous compliance and meeting CMMC V2 Level 2 requirements.


Benefit:

Qmulos’ approach drastically reduces the significant manual overhead traditionally required to collect evidence, allows for the upload of nontechnical evidence, and helps customers achieve the intent of CMMC: the ability to monitor critical technical controls and drastically improve real operational security.

Through its next-gen compliance solution, Q-Compliance, and its insider threat management solution, Q-Audit, Qmulos helped the global technology company greatly transform its manual compliance program to real-time, continuous monitoring, preparing it to meet CMMC 2.0 Level 2 requirements by the 2025 deadline.
