The GCC High Alternative

Cuick Trac vs. GCC High

Microsoft GCC High is a great product, but it's not the right solution for every contractor handling CUI. If you're trying to understand the difference between Cuick Trac and GCC High, you're in the right place.

The Top 3 Reasons Why Government Contractors Choose Cuick Trac over Microsoft GCC High


Reason #1

No Hidden Licensing Costs

  • Don’t get too excited by a low per-user license of GCC High. You’ll still pay monthly licensing fees for computer resources, secure storage, file sharing, firewall, SIEM, MFA, email, vulnerability scanning and more.
  • Cuick Trac’s per-user license includes everything you need.

Reason #2

Ease of Implementation

  • GCC High requires an overhaul of your company’s IT and operations. Plus, you’ll need to find someone to manage the technical and compliance aspects of the environment on a monthly basis.
  • Cuick Trac provides a fully managed, dedicated CUI environment that is remote and secure.

Reason #3

Speed to Compliance

  • GCC High Implementations are unique and complex, taking a reported minimum of 40 weeks to reach a passing SPRS score.
  • Cuick Trac’s pre-configured enclave handles 80% of the requirements outright. And our security experts help you tackle the rest. Most reach a 110 SPRS score within 12+ weeks.
