Telos to support USAF’s enterprise environments

22nd January 2018 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Telos has been selected to provide risk management and compliance automation support to the US Air Force’s Enterprise NIPRNet and SIPRNet environments, the company announced on 17 January.

Telos’ Xacta suite of enterprise IT risk management and compliance automation solutions will assist the air force in accelerating authorisations to operate and continuously monitoring a wide array of accreditation boundaries, to include on-premises, hybrid and cloud environments.

Xacta includes components such as Xacta 360 that supports comprehensive lifecycle security authorisation workflow for system assessment and authorisation across the enterprise; Xacta Continuum which enables continuous compliance of automated controls across multiple systems and standards for a holistic view of an organisation’s compliance posture and actionable reporting metrics for prioritised decision making; and Xacta Compliance Campaign Manager to streamline compliances of manual controls through qualitative surveys and questionnaires.

Telos will provide software implementation, training, migration services and subject matter expertise in support of the transition effort.

John Wood, CEO and chairman, Telos, said: ‘The US Air Force has historically been a leader of the Department of Defence’s (DoD’s) network improvements and innovations.

‘The president’s recent executive order on cybersecurity clears the way forward on adopting the NIST framework and a cloud first approach to security control and modernisation for the DoD and the rest of the government. Telos is proud to be a part of the air force team.’
