Teri Takai: DoD Plans to Authorize 9 Cloud Providers

Takai_Teri_smallThe Pentagon aims to further expand commercial cloud availability throughout the military with a plan to certify nine companies to run the services for the military, FCW reported Thursday.

Adam Mazmanian writes Chief Information Officer Teri Takai told a House Armed Services subcommittee hearing last week that the move was part of the Defense Department’s “aggressive push” toward commercial cloud use under the Joint Information Environment program.

That goal is intended to help ensure Cyber Command can continue to carry out its mandated tasks to detect, keep track of and defend against cyber attacks, she added.

According to Takai, Autonomics and three other companies are currently on DoD’s authorized cloud providers list.
