Acquisition of leading risk management software simplified for highly security-conscious users of restricted AWS region
Ashburn, Va. – August 11, 2017 – Telos® Corporation, a leading provider of continuous security solutions and services for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, today announced that its automated risk management solution, Xacta 360, is now available in the new Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US) Marketplace, which was officially launched on Thursday, August 10.
Amazon’s AWS GovCloud (US) region is an isolated AWS region designed to host sensitive data in the cloud, helping customers in the government and highly regulated industries support their security requirements. The AWS GovCloud (US) Marketplace will serve this specific customer base.
“Being available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Marketplace is a critical step for delivering the most efficient and effective solutions to our most sensitive customers,” said John B. Wood, CEO and chairman, Telos. “With Xacta 360 now available in the GovCloud Marketplace, Telos is able to streamline software delivery, simplify billing and payment and reduce the software testing and trial process. This will greatly enhance our customers’ ability to improve security and compliance in GovCloud.”
In June, Telos launched Xacta 360 to streamline security compliance and empower a 360-degree view of the threat landscape. Xacta 360, which is available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Marketplace and the AWS Marketplace, is equipped with powerful new capabilities optimized for AWS that help enterprises provide the body of evidence necessary to assure compliance with rigorous security standards up to 50 percent faster.
“DHS employs Xacta to manage risk and compliance for a very large number of information systems, using automation to streamline necessary but otherwise time-intensive tasks,” said Richard Johnson, cloud information system security manager, Department of Homeland Security. “With the launch of Xacta 360 and the AWS GovCloud (US) Marketplace, federal agencies will have better access to the necessary software to create an efficient, secure enterprise to serve our citizens.”
Telos is an AWS technology, consulting, and public sector partner.
