Gradius IT Solutions Provides NIST 800-171 Compliance Consulting Services in Tri-State Area including Connecticut

At Gradius IT Solutions, we provide Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliance consulting for US government contractors, ensuring that organizations reach the criteria for CMMC compliance – including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-171 certification. 

It can be confusing to know where an organization should begin on the path to NIST 800-171 compliance. Gradius IT Solutions can help United States Department of Defense (DoD) contractors perform third party assessments and become certified. Our CMMC audit can help a defense industry partner by detailing specific actions needed to meet security standards requirements and reduce cyber risk.

CMMC compliance services inform an organization on their existing cybersecurity controls and highlights their path forward to their goals of compliance and certification. CMMC compliance requirements are necessary for a business if they have access to and handle controlled unclassified information (CUI) or other federal contract information. 


The federal government uses a tiered approach to auditing companies involved in the defense industrial base (DIB). This ensures that all organizations involved in the DoD supply chain – whether they are bidding on defense contracts, providing critical services, or handling controlled technical information – meet the required CMMC certification. Level 2 certification may require a self-assessment or a third-party assessment like the NIST SP 800-171 which includes a higher standard of cyber security posture.


Department of Defense (DoD) contract companies must certainly meet and exceed the cyber security requirements necessary for every business. They should provide employees with security awareness training. Cloud services must be managed with industry best practices tightly controlled. Access control to information and systems should be firmly in place. 


An incident response plan should be adopted so a clear plan is in place should data breaches occur. Remediation activities must be handled according to set guidelines. 

When defense contractors choose to pursue CMMC certifications like the NIST 800-171, more intense standards are enforced. It makes sense to get the assistance of a cyber security vendor that you can trust to act as a CMMC consultant in assessing basic cyber hygiene and identifying and closing security gaps.

Small & Medium Businesses Have These Key Issues Some NIST 800-171 Compliance Service Providers

Over the years of providing compliance assessments for CMMC requirements, we've heard several complaints from Tri-State Area businesses about some providers. In many instances, it’s not the fault of the service providers in question. Oftentimes, the client dissatisfaction is just due to the nature of one-man freelancers or two-person tech support companies. Companies with that type of structure can’t deliver and scale to meet the needs of a growing business or the changing cybersecurity scene.
Two of the most common issues are pricing and reliability:

Two of the most common issues are pricing, and reliability:


It can be important to find a service provider that you can rely on, to build a relationship over time. Reason being -this service provider may need to perform additional services later. The lower price services will usually show to be less-than-reliable for long term needs. Race is Different.


Many clients have complained about pesky hourly fees. Such as the computer consultant who will try to spend that extra 15-30 minutes onsite, just to charge an extra fee. Independent Contractors may charge reasonable hourly rates in some cases. When they rely on service-hours to make a living, their goal is to bill as many as possible.

In the case of Independent IT Contractors- many of these technicians take as much work as they can possibly get. They may not have a specialized technical category of focus, they become a Jack-of-All-Tech-Trades Master of None. The result is- it may take significantly longer to fix the same type of issue a Specialized Technician would have fixed in 1 hour.
