Making CMMC compliance checks significantly easier with the new CMMC Module

The evidence/information is provided in a report format that meets Certified Assessor requirements.
- Introduction, explaining the CMMC domains and levels applicable to the report
- Findings overview
- Individual sections for each CMMC practice that Nipper has assessed, with information as to any issues found and any applicable evidence
- Exact technical fixes and remediation recommendations
The CMMC Module requires activation; if you would like to use this module please speak to your account manager or contact us at email@example.com.
