Meeting High Standards: Creating Compliant Secure enclave Environments

CMMC 2.0 secure enclaves represent a specialized, secure environment within the cybersecurity landscape, distinct from the secure enclaves found in processors like those in an Apple Watch. While both types of enclaves aim to enhance security, their applications and contexts differ significantly. In the realm of processors, such as the secure enclave processor found in devices with Touch ID or Face ID, the enclave serves as a form of trusted execution environment. It is specifically designed to protect sensitive information like encryption keys, securely stored in the secure enclave memory, safeguarding them against side channel attacks and unauthorized access.

On the other hand, CMMC 2.0 secure enclaves refer to a dedicated secure space within an organization's network or operating system, designed to isolate and protect critical data and operations. This concept is integral to cybersecurity solutions, especially for DoD contractors who must safeguard sensitive information against data breaches. These enclaves offer the advantage of encrypting data in a controlled environment, minimizing the risk of exposure to the latest threats in the evolving cyber landscape. Unlike the hardware-focused secure enclave processor, CMMC 2.0 secure enclaves are more about creating a holistic, secure cyber environment, encompassing not just encryption, but also comprehensive security monitoring and threat intelligence. Thus, while they share a common goal of security, CMMC 2.0 secure enclaves are broader in scope, focusing on protecting an organization's overall digital infrastructure.

What is the essendis secure enclave?

A secure enclave for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)  is a specialized, secure computing environment designed to handle sensitive data. In this context, "CUI" refers to information that, while not classified, requires protection under federal laws and regulations. Here's how it works:

Azure GCC High: A secure enclave is a protected area within a computer system designed to safeguard sensitive data and execution processes. In the context of CUI, a secure enclave would be a dedicated cloud infrastructure, isolated from other parts of the network, where CUI can be processed and stored.

Azure Virtual Desktop: AVD is a technology that allows users to access a desktop environment hosted in Azure GCC . This means that the actual computing takes place in US-based data centers, and only the keyboard, mouse, and display inputs and outputs are transmitted over the network.

M365 Enhanced Security Controls: To ensure the security of CUI, the enclave is equipped with advanced security measures powered by Microsoft365. This include strong encryption, multi-factor authentication, strict access controls, audit trails, and regular security monitoring.

Compliance with Regulations: Handling CUI requires compliance with specific government regulations, such as the CMMC 2.0 and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines. Our secure enclave powered by Azure GCC High is designed to meet these regulatory requirements, ensuring that CUI is handled according to the prescribed standards.
