How Joslyn Manufacturing protects client assets and demonstrates trust


Joslyn Manufacturing







The Problem

It was a customer-driven decision for Joslyn’s COO to explore CMMC compliance. The company was working on custom products for multiple companies to fulfill state Department of Defense contracts. Joslyn Manufacturing became subject to flow-down requirements and started to put together a self assessment, only to quickly realize that it would require external IT and cyber professional help.

“It was an eye-opener on opportunities that would be out there for us, once we get to the Level 2 of CMMC. From the very beginning, I was impressed with the Ignyte team’s knowledge and experience. Our intent is to move forward with Ignyte’s help to further stages. I would definitely recommend them, but I’d like to get our business there first.”

The Solution

Ignyte has assessed basic protocols that Joslyn had in place for cybersecurity. The main objective of this project was to start working towards CMMC Level 3 (now updated Level 2) to satisfy the flow-down requirements for CMMC compliance from Prime Vendors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). Joslyn needed guidance in vendor management, and technical oversight of compliance documentation.

Ignyte has helped alleviate compliance documentation gaps, like the System Security Plan (SSP), Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M), policies, and network diagrams. Its cyber team conducted an initial self-assessment to develop an SPRS score for PIEE. Based on the assessment, they provided an initial status and control statement responses to each of the controls for the SSP. In addition, they assisted with multiple cybersecurity and NIST questionnaires for continued compliance. Ignyte introduced technology recommendations along with SCAP hardening to conduct baselines and implement hardening remediations. To ensure continuous monitoring, Ignyte’s delivery team deployed a cloud instance on the Ignyte Assurance Platform for Joslyn Manufacturing to help automate all baselines and updates throughout the program.
