Certification + Accreditation
The secure network approval process can be a challenging one, burdened by several compliance obstacles that prevent an otherwise successful deployment. The inability to receive an Authorization To Operate (ATO) and/or a Certificate To Field (CTF); incomplete and/or improper submittal preparation; and unsatisfactory product pieces such as documentation and test plans are just some of the common issues that impede approval.
Our Certification and Accreditation (C&A) services, delivered by the industry’s top Risk Management Framework (RMF) specialists and cybersecurity experts, prepare any product for a successful assessment and authorization to operate on secure networks. From comprehensive gap analysis to integrated support, we will identify and correct all deficiencies delaying certification.
Our effective and innovative six-step C&A process adds value and depth to any security posture regardless of individual needs and requirements.
Our Information Assurance (IA) team, bringing over 30 years of collective C&A experience as well as nearly 20 years of expertise in executing government projects, has grown to become a leading authority in the C&A realm. We have successfully navigated several systems and releases through a diverse set of accreditation processes and continue to hold a 100% success rate in receiving network approvals in a timely and cost-effective manner. As an early adopter of RMF, a vital key to our success has been developing a submittal package aimed at this framework that addresses enclaves relying on associated mechanisms to establish an appropriate ATO.
Recently we were not only identified as a “Path Finder Company” by DISA but also referenced as a Compliance Model by both the DIA and 25th AF. That’s because we look to the future in tandem with relying on past collective experience. By regularly attending key government workshops on accreditation trends, we keep apprised of emerging approaches and acquire up-to-date knowledge of current DoD guidelines, allowing us to increase the effectiveness of any accreditation initiative. We also bring a pragmatic understanding of how such guidelines translate into functional requirements for the technologies built in response to government needs.
