Ariento Among First C3PAOs Authorized to Perform CMMC Audits

Ariento Inc., a leading cybersecurity, information technology (IT), and compliance service provider to the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), has been authorized as a CMMC Third-Party Assessor Organization (C3PAO) by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB). Ariento is one of the first firms authorized to perform CMMC audits and will participate in the 2021 pathfinder program and contracts recently announced.
“We appreciate the special responsibility that comes with being one of the first C3PAOs,” said Ariento COO Dan Baldini. “We look forward to a collaborative relationship with the CMMC-AB to help ensure the successful implementation of the CMMC framework.”
Over the past year, Ariento has helped prepare organizations of all sizes for the CMMC rollout through its advisory consulting and/or managed services business lines. Ariento Chief Engineer, Andrew Ro, was selected to participate in the Provisional Assessor program and is one of the original certified provisional assessors. Ariento is also a CMMC Registered Practitioner Organization (RPO) capable of providing CMMC advisory services to DIB companies seeking assistance as they prepare for an official CMMC audit.
