JANUS Software, Inc., d/b/a JANUS Associates

Founded in 1988, JANUS is America’s longest operating risk management and IT security firm. We continue to serve a wide range of clients in the federal, state, and local government; private industry; and not-for-profit organizations and bring the best practices of each sector to our projects. JANUS is a privately held, certified woman-owned small business (WOSB) headquartered in Stamford, CT with additional locations throughout the United States.

JANUS has 32+ years of cybersecurity consulting experience and has been assisting our clients to get ready for the DoD’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) since it was introduced.  As a CMMC-AB C3PAO Candidate, JANUS focuses on assisting federal contractors/subcontractors to prepare for compliance with the CMMC process.  We work with our clients to start down the long road to CMMC compliance by completing initial assessments, helping them provide their initial self-certification scores into the federal Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS), and then assisting them with preparation of the System Security Plans (SSPs), their Plan of Action and Milestones (POAMs), guidance on adequate controls, and the various tasks needed to ensure that they will be able to pass the independent assessment.  JANUS also has up-to-date experience with a variety of organizations that require NIST 800-171 compliance, the original structure upon which the CMMC is based for the independent assessment leading to eventual certification.  We are NIST experts and perform many NIST-based projects each year.
