Telos Corporation, a provider of IT solutions to the federal government, has established a non-exclusive business relationship with Booz Allen Hamilton, a global strategy and technology consulting firm dealing with major international corporations and government clients.

By CBR Staff Writer

Booz Allen Hamilton is considering Xacta IA Manager security compliance and risk management software among several select technologies to support the new Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) initiative.

The partnership is based on the integration of Xacta IA Manager with Booz Allen Hamilton’s Enterprise Mission Assurance Support System (eMASS), an initiative sponsored by the Assistant Security of Defense for Networks and Information Integration. This initiative is designed to support DIACAP, which will replace the previous Defense Information Technology Security Certification and Accreditation Policy (DITSCAP), across all branches, services, combatant commands, and agencies within DoD.

Xacta IA Manager will provide DoD with the ability to automate IT security management functions, as well as maintain a continuous insight into the IT security risk posture across its global enterprise. Xacta IA Manager allows the synchronization and automation of activities associated with IT risk management and remediation to ensure a consistent and repeatable approach to C&A.

We’re pleased to work with Booz Allen Hamilton to help evolve the DoD’s enterprise-wide approach to IT security from being a time-consuming project to part of each agency’s mission and business processes, said Richard P. Tracy, chief security officer for Xacta Corporation, a Telos Corporation subsidiary. Xacta IA Manager will allow DoD to implement a fully-integrated, standardized, and repeatable C&A methodology that can be followed as part of day-to-day operations.

Xacta IA Manager is currently deployed in the Air Force, Army, and Navy, as well as in various intelligence agencies. In addition, Xacta IA Manager is used throughout many civilian agencies, including Census Bureau, Department of Agriculture (USDA), Department of Interior (DOI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), assisting these and other agencies to automate their IT security processes.
