Transform ATOs with agile cATO solutions

Historically, ATOs were issued for a 3-year period based on the concept that systems remained relatively stable and new development was multi-year efforts. However, the advent of agile and DevSecOps ensure that changes to the system (architecture, technology and enhancements) happens rapidly and to maintain a secure, resilient system, cATO must be implemented. Our framework and Apps provide Security Professionals guidance and automation to achieve cATO goals by up to 80% when compared to the classic approach.

We offer techniques, checklists, templates and process models, aligned with DoD DevSecOps Reference Architecture, to implement a cyber strategy promoting real time or near real time visibility into cyber defenses and ensuring the maintenance of a system’s security posture. We embed and automate these processes into our DX360°® signature security applications that can be quickly leveraged for cATO achievements and continuous monitoring with a focus on rapid and secure deployment (continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD)).
