DHS Selects Xacta IA Manager Suite of Products for Enterprise-wide Risk Management
Telos Corporation and International Computing Systems, Inc. to Provide Compliance, Vulnerability Management and Continuous Monitoring
ASHBURN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has selected Xacta® IA Manager from Telos® Corporation for enterprise-wide risk management and compliance. Along with the Xacta IA Manager suite, Telos and partner International Computing Systems, Inc. will provide information assurance training and continuous monitoring under the multi-year, firm fixed price contract.
"DHS is subject to a number of laws and regulations for monitoring and assuring the security of its classified and unclassified networks," said Sam Chung, President of ICS. "Telos' Xacta IA Manager solution provides the risk management framework required by DHS to enforce policy, track the effectiveness of security programs, and monitor compliance across the enterprise."
Because of its unique role in the U.S. government, DHS information systems must comply with a broad range of security mandates from NIST, DoD, the intelligence community, and its own security controls policy. The department required a monitoring, compliance and reporting tool that could easily be configured to meet the diverse requirements of FISMA, NIST 800-53, CNSS 1253, FedRAMP, and DHS directives. Xacta IA Manager offers customized templates and controls inheritance to ease transition, and its dashboard view, reporting features, and CyberScope integration simplify reporting and compliance monitoring.
"ICS has been a trusted partner of Telos for many years," said Rinaldi Pisani, Telos vice president and general manager for Cyber Application Solutions. "Our information assurance and IT consultants and trainers will team to provide the very best enterprise-wide risk management services to DHS."
Telos and ICS will provide DHS with training for approximately 1,600 system users, on-site help desk and maintenance, and transition support.
Xacta IA Manager is an enterprise risk management framework that facilitates compliance assessment, continuous risk and sustained compliance management, and security process automation. It combines industry-leading security compliance and risk assessment functionality with powerful business process automation.
