Rethinking the Role of Compliance

Frameworks & Solutions

Compliance with cybersecurity frameworks is essential for mitigating risk and enhancing your cyber posture as it provides a structured and standardized approach to identifying and addressing potential vulnerabilities. These frameworks offer established guidelines and best practices, ensuring that organizations systematically implement robust security measures and stay up-to-date with evolving threats.


Continuous Authority to Operate (cATO) represents the next evolution in cybersecurity, and Qmulos is leading the way. We provide an automated, end-to-end cATO solution, transforming how organizations handle compliance and risk management.


Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM)

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program is leading the effort to reduce cyber risk and provide visibility across the federal government.

CIS Critical Controls

The CIS Critical Security Controls are a recommended set of actions for cyber defense that provide specific and actionable ways to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous attacks.


The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS)

CJIS compliance keeps networks on the same page when it comes to data security and encryption, and ensures that sensitive criminal justice intel is locked down.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)

The CMMC measures the maturity of an organization’s cybersecurity processes and practices across five levels covering seventeen domains. The domains are broad categories of critical security functions such as Access Control, Identification and Authentication, Incident Response, etc. much like the control families from the NIST 800-53 security controls standard.

Acceptable Risk Safeguards (ARS)

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Acceptable Risk Safeguards (ARS) provides guidance to CMS and its contractors as to the minimum acceptable level of required security controls that must be implemented by CMS and CMS contractors to protect CMS’ information and information systems, including CMS Sensitive Information.


Custom Frameworks

Custom compliance frameworks are tailored approaches to meet specific mandates, which can be complex and diverse. Qmulos stands out with its inherently agile and infinitely adaptive platform, making it effortless to support any mandates, including custom frameworks.


Federal Risk And Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)

The FedRAMP security controls are based on NIST SP 800-53 Revision 4 baselines and contain controls above the NIST baseline that address the unique elements of cloud computing. Check out our FedRAMP Industry Brief.


Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Through a series of interlocking regulatory rules, HIPAA compliance is a living culture that health care organizations must implement into their business in order to protect the privacy, security, and integrity of protected health information. Check out our HIPAA Industry Brief.

ICS 500-27

Intelligence Community Standard (ICS) 500-27

This standard provides for the collection and sharing of audit data to support counter-intelligence, information assurance, business analytics, personnel security, and other community audit needs related to IC information resources.

ISO_IEC 27001

ISO/IEC 27001

We provide a powerful platform that enables enterprises to seamlessly navigate the often complex landscape of ISO 27001, improving both compliance and audit readiness. Rooted in the power of automation and real-time analytics, our solution not only ensures your adherence to the stringent requirements of the standard but also equips you with the ability to transparently demonstrate your robust cybersecurity posture.

North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP) Plan

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection plan is a set of requirements designed to secure the assets required for operating North America’s bulk electric system. Check out our NERC CIP Industry Brief.

NIST SP 800-137

NIST SP 800-137, part of the broader NIST framework, outlines the approach for continuous monitoring in cybersecurity. Qmulos’ state-of-the-art True Compliance Automation™ solution optimizes compliance with this guideline, delivering a seamless, efficient process for your organization.

NIST 800-53

NIST SP 800-53 covers a range of security and privacy controls that address aspects of information security, including access control, risk assessment, security training, incident response, and more. It is a critical resource for federal agencies, contractors, and organizations that handle sensitive government information, helping them establish effective cybersecurity measures to protect data and maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of systems and information. The document is periodically updated to reflect evolving technologies and security challenges.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework provides a policy framework of computer security guidance for how private sector organizations in the United States can assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber attacks.

OMB M-21-31 ​

OMB M-21-31

The release of Executive Order 14028 and the subsequent OMB Memorandum M-21-31 underscore the government’s commitment to enhancing threat visibility and incident response. As these mandates evolve, your organization needs a partner that not only understands the intricacies of these directives but also offers solutions tailored to meet and exceed their requirements.


Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is an information security standard for organizations that handle branded credit cards from the major card schemes. The PCI Standard is mandated by the card brands but administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. Check out our PCI DSS Industry Brief.

RMF/NIST 800-37

The Risk Management Framework provides a process that integrates security, privacy, and cyber supply chain risk management activities into the system development life cycle. The risk-based approach to control selection and specification considers effectiveness, efficiency, and constraints due to applicable laws, directives, Executive Orders, policies, standards, or regulations.

Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)

SOX compliance is not just a legal obligation but also a good business practice. The goal of the legislation is to increase transparency in the financial reporting by corporations and to require a formalized system of checks and balances in each company.



StateRAMP’s governance committees adopt policies and procedures that standardize security requirements for providers. StateRAMP’s Program Management Office then verifies those cloud offerings utilized by government satisfy adopted security requirements through independent audits and continuous monitoring. Products that are working towards or have achieved StateRAMP Authorizations are included on the Authorized Product List.


Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) is an auditing procedure developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to ensure that service providers are securely managing data to protect the interests of the organization and the privacy of its clients.


Zero Trust

It is important to recognize that each of the foundational capabilities within the Zero Trust Model carries the requirement for continuous, dynamic functionality. Meaning, the traditional, often manual, periodic approach to control assessment and remediation falls prohibitively short of the goals and objectives of Zero Trust.
