Telos Corp., Splunk Inc. and stackArmor have partnered under the Authority to Operate on Amazon Web Services through a new initiative called Faster ATO with Splunk, Telos and ThreatAlert for Regulated Markets, or FASTTR.
FASTTR brings together three cybersecurity solutions to benefit independent software providers and regulated defense contractors required to comply with state and local government security regulations. These include Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, the Federal Information Security Management Act, Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification and soon, StateRAMP.
Telos’ solutions help customers “meet the complex challenges of managing IT risk with security control documentation and continuous monitoring,” said Troy Bertram, vice president sales for Telos. “We are pleased to join AWS, Splunk and stackArmor to speed compliance in the cloud.”
StackArmor’s ThreatAlert ATO Accelerator delivers an AWS Landing Zone with National Institute of Standards and Technology-compliant security services and a complete ATO documentation package generated using Xacta. Xacta is Telos’ cyber risk management and compliance automation solution that uses AWS control and Open Security Controls Assessment Language data exchange capabilities.
“We are beyond pleased to support this new initiative under the ATO on AWS program, which is a Partner-driven process established to reduce the time and cost associated with achieving compliance certifications that can significantly stall efforts to migrate to the cloud,” said Sandy Carter, AWS vice president for worldwide public sector partners and programs.
Splunk, Telos and stackArmor have independently helped customers obtain FedRAMP ATOs, and together are streamlining the process even further.
“I am really impressed to see how our public sector partners are zeroing in on public sector needs and innovating to meet the growing demand for secure cloud computing services,” Carter said.
