HERNDON, Va. & SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ascolta, a ViON® company focused on secure cloud services, announced today it is introducing its NIST-compliant platform, Greenfield, with an as-a-Service model to help businesses quickly and safely address the federal government’s latest cybersecurity mandates. The Ascolta Greenfield solution is a pre-configured cloud environment that meets DFARS security requirements and NIST SP 800-171 standards. The platform is being introduced to the market at the 2018 Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) West Conference February 6-8 in booth #1004.
“After years of working on projects with the Department of Defense and helping organizations achieve compliance, we witnessed how difficult and time-consuming it is for businesses to build their own NIST-compliant environment with existing resources,” explained Wayne Hall, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Ascolta. “With Ascolta Greenfield, organizations no longer have to spend months or years building a solution to address the 110 NIST controls. Our platform is available as-a-Service immediately and is supported by our cybersecurity experts to ensure customers have a smooth transition. It is truly a game-changer for organizations, especially small and medium-sized subcontractors, to be up and running with this level of security in a matter of days.”
Ascolta Greenfield is a separate and secure environment, hosted in a FedRAMP-approved cloud environment that addresses all 110 NIST controls in a single, easy-to-implement solution. It allows organizations to migrate government contract work and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) from the corporate network to a managed, secure, compliant, affordable system that rapidly meets compliance requirements. As a cloud service creator, Ascolta Greenfield’s secure Platform as-a-Service (PaaS) provides packaged environments enabling organizations to run various services while capitalizing on all that Cloud has to offer. Ascolta’s engineers can quickly custom design each of these environments to meet different requirements, covering a wide range of security and compliance options.
AFCEA West is the West Coast’s premier armed forces and technology conference bringing together military, government and industry leaders to discuss the ethical exchange of information. The 2018 event will take place February 6-8 at the San Diego Convention Center.
“As the federal government raises the bar for cybersecurity, thousands of organizations that serve the government are pushed to quickly meet these new standards of operation,” explained Tom Frana, CEO and Chairman for ViON Corporation. “Ascolta’s Greenfield enables these businesses to keep pace and better predict and manage budgets – all with the enhanced security and support they need to continue serving government agencies.”
