Telos has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command to deploy the Xacta 360 platform onto the government cloud network, Secret Commercial Cloud Services, the company announced Wednesday.

“In our current threat environment, it’s critical to minimize mission delays and unexpected costs when it comes to information assurance,” said John Wood, CEO and chairman of Telos.

Xacta 360 is designed to help users manage risk through continuous assessment and authorization of on-premise and cloud computing environments. The platform also offers organizations a comprehensive view of the security and compliance posture for immediate analysis and action.

The SC2S environment was built by Amazon Web Services to support the USAF Enterprise and other government SIPRNet requirements. Telos has provided a 50 percent increase in efficiency and reliability, using Xacta 360 on the AWS Commercial Cloud Services Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information network. 

Under the contract, Telos will provide migration services, training support and subject matter expertise to garrison and field units globally that are in support of the transition effort. Xacta 360 on C2S and SC2S will be available to all USAF entities.

“We’re honored to expand on our relationship with the United States Air Force and to leverage our innovative technology to better support defensive cyber operations at Air Combat Command,” Wood added.
