NIST 800-171 Compliance

VAAXA provides compliance services for department of defense contractors still working towards NIST 800-171 compliance. The DFARS 7020 interim rule requires contractors to submit an assessment score to the SPRS system along with a System Security Plan (SSP) and Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M). We walk clients through these steps to improve their score as a prelude to the up-and-coming CMMC requirements.

CMMC Compliance

VAAXA has expertise in helping Department of Defense contractors prepare for CMMC assessments. We will work with you to align both the technical and cybersecurity aspects of your environment with CMMC requirements. We also assist with the assessment process by gathering and presenting evidence and being available to answer questions during the assessment. VAAXA is also working on becoming a C3PAO in order to offer assessments.

CMMC Managed Services

VAAXA offers Managed Services for DoD contractors. VAAXA is backed by over 30 years of MSP experience. Our methods include using ticketing and remote management solutions that are stored in a CMMC compliant environment. By doing so, we can provide ticketing and remote support even when FCI or CUI is involved. This allows us to support our customers without them having to worry about compliance implications.

Cybersecurity Consulting

VAAXA provides general cybersecurity consulting for any type of business or government organization. VAAXA's experts can analyze any environment and put together a plan to align the business with best practices and zero trust architecture. By doing so we can help business owners and managers know that they are doing everything they can to keep their business protected. Our consulting services also include assessing, planning, and remediation and apply to a variety of businesses, government organizations, IoT, IIoT, SCADA, and more. 


VAAXA provides businesses and government organizations a virtual Chief Information Security Officer. These assigned experts offer their time and insight on a continual part-time basis. The vCISO will address general security, policies, training, and compliance. The vCISO can also assume roles within the organization for compliance purposes.

Penetration Testing

VAAXA offers both external and internal penetration testing and risk assessments. Our services include in-depth vulnerability assessments, manual penetration testing, phishing campaigns, and automated penetration testing depending on the environment. Upon conclusion of the penetration testing, all findings are reported back to the client, by risk level, with recommendations for remediation.

Security Operations Center (SOC)

VAAXA provides 24x7 SOC services to our clients. This allows us to be proactive rather than reactive, which makes all of the difference when it comes to security incidents. The integration with antivirus, networks, and even Office 365 gives us visibility around the entire technical environment. This allows us to see and block security incidents before they have an opportunity to be successful or spread.
