RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Software AG Government Solutions today announced it has earned a Superior rating in an annual audit by the U.S. Defense Security Service (DSS). DSS provides the military services, Defense Agencies, 30 federal agencies and approximately 13,500 contractor facilities with security support services for the protection of U.S. and foreign information and technologies in the hands of industry. In July, DSS completed an extensive review that encompassed a full security vulnerability assessment at the facility. The annual security assessment evaluates a company based on the standards set forth by the U.S. National Industrial Security Program (NISP).
According to the DSS, a “Superior” rating is reserved for contractors that consistently and fully implement the requirements of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) in an effective fashion, resulting in a superior security posture, compared with other contractors of similar size and complexity. The facility must have documented procedures that heighten the security awareness of employees and foster a spirit of cooperation within the security community. Less than 10 percent of approximately 13,500 facilities that the DSS oversees receive a Superior rating.
Tod Weber, CEO for Software AG Government Solutions, said: "In today's rapidly evolving threat landscape, a ‘Superior’ rating is something our company is very proud and honored to receive. The rating signifies the high level of trust the U.S. Government places both on our company and our employees. It clearly reinforces the commitment we have to optimize our business in support of mission assurance for our Federal customers and their suppliers.”
