The federal business of Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has helped the U.S. Air Force implement a cloud risk-reduction approach at six installations as part of the service branch’s efforts to modernize its enterprise information technology infrastructure.

Accenture Federal Services assisted the Air Force's Enterprise-IT-as-Service organization in transmitting internet traffic from cloud environments such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services to a secure access point, the Air Force said Wednesday.

The Boundary Cloud Access Point, developed by the Defense Information Systems Agency, works to prevent cloud-originated threats to the Defense Information System Network.

BCAP is designed to process data at the network edge and is designed to handle intrusion detection, prevention assessments and traffic monitoring activities.

The EITaaS team plans to establish an Enterprise Security Operations Center to centralize the management of disparate hosting platforms, according to the Air Force.
