An Appian application picked up an “Authority to Operate” (ATO) from the U.S. Department of Education.
According to the firm, “the Appian Anywhere solution is a cloud-based BPM solution that has received an ATO from the federal government. The ATO was awarded after a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of the solution’s management, operational, and technical security controls. The assessment was performed under the Federal Information Security Act of 2002 (FISMA) framework for managing information security for all information systems used or operated by a U.S. federal government agency or by a contractor or other organization on behalf of a federal agency.”
Appian’s leadership feels the firm can help customers meet several crucial goals.
“The combination of cloud computing and BPM supports the administration’s mandates for greater transparency, efficiency and collaboration within and across government agencies, ” said Matthew Calkins, president and CEO of Appian. “We are seeing increasing interest for our cloud solutions from government agencies, and this certification provides them assurance that we meet the stringent requirements for federal information systems.”
