Telos Xacta 360 enters AWS GovCloud Marketplace
- By Sara Friedman
Telos announced that its Xacta 360 automated risk management solution is now available in the Amazon Web Services GovCloud Marketplace. Xacta 360 helps government agencies comply with risk management framework controls in the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Special Publication 800-53.
Xacta 360 provides continuous assessment and ongoing authorization of on-premises and cloud computing environments. By automating the compliance processes, Xacta 360 gives agencies a comprehensive view of the security and compliance of their systems and workloads based in the AWS cloud.
“Xacta integrates or interfaces those services to determine whether they are configured in a compliant way.” Rick Tracy, Telos senior vice president and chief security officer, told GCN.
“Organizations are dealing with a lot of complexity with migrating some parts of their operations to the cloud,” Tracy said. “We give customers the ability to manage complex accreditation boundaries between mixes of on premise and cloud resources in a hybrid environment.”
