Applied Insight subsidiary, Stratus Solutions, has been awarded a mission-critical cloud contract from U.S. Cyber Command. The company will be working with USCYBERCOM to accelerate its ability to rapidly adopt commercial cloud services and migrate its activities into the cloud, utilizing the company’s cloud platform-as-a-service, Altitude, as the foundation of a secure and compliant cloud environment.
“The cloud is an immensely powerful enabling capability. It hosts a rapidly evolving range of sophisticated commercial tools and technologies that government organizations want to be able to use,” said Dede Dascalu, Applied Insight’s chief technology officer. “The challenge is to help them do that at the pace at which these technologies are evolving and in a carefully controlled and secure environment.”
The company will support the Command in developing and implementing a secure, flexible and scalable cloud platform, and overseeing USCYBERCOM’s migration to the cloud and the ongoing operation of its cloud environment as it scales. Among the services the company will provide are architecture design, implementation and operation, security acceleration, and cloud governance. The ultimate goal is to integrate and sustain the Command’s use of commercial cloud IT services into its activities and operations.
