Prevent remote devices from simultaneously establishing non-remote connections with organizational systems and communicating via some other connection to resources in external networks (i.e., split tunneling)

In today's interconnected world, maintaining robust cybersecurity measures is more important than ever, especially for organizations working with the Department of Defense (DoD). Ensuring compliance with DFARS, NIST SP 800-171, and CMMC standards is critical to protecting sensitive information and maintaining your standing in the defense industry.

CMMC 2.0 Compliance Tip: Control SC.L2-3.13.7

One crucial control in the CMMC 2.0 framework is SC.L2-3.13.7, which focuses on preventing split tunneling. This control requires organizations to prevent remote devices from simultaneously establishing non-remote connections with organizational systems and communicating via another connection to resources in external networks.

Why is this important?

  • Mitigates Cybersecurity Risks: Split tunneling can create significant vulnerabilities, allowing threat actors to bypass security measures and gain unauthorized access to your network.
  • Enhances Data Protection: By enforcing this control, you ensure that remote devices are not exposing sensitive data to potential threats from unsecured networks.
  • Ensures Compliance: Adhering to this control is essential for meeting CMMC 2.0 requirements and maintaining compliance with DFARS and NIST SP 800-171 standards.
