Stratus Solutions, a subsidiary of Applied Insight, which is backed by The Acacia Group, has been awarded a mission-critical cloud contract from U.S. Cyber Command (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, Applied Insight announced on Thursday.
Stratus Solutions will enable USCYBERCOM to access a comprehensive range of commercial cloud services within an oversight framework aligned with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s Cloud Smart strategy. The company will also be using Altitude for its automated rapid cloud deployment and governance capabilities.
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.
“We’ve worked intensively with customers and cloud service providers to address barriers to effective cloud adoption in government organizations, centered on security and compliance,” said John Hynes, CEO of Applied Insight.
“Our Altitude cloud platform is one of the results of that work, developed within aiLabs, our in-house R&D engine. It’s all part of our commitment to deliver accountable innovation to our customers — solutions that align with how people need to work to advance their mission. I’d like to thank USCYBERCOM for giving us the chance to demonstrate our value to them,” Hynes added.
