AWS Awards Government and Security Competency Designations to Partner Telos Corporation


Cloud Provider's Advanced Technology Partner Meets Rigorous
Quality and Adoption Standards

Telos® Corporation, a leading provider of continuous security
solutions and services for the world's most security-conscious
organizations, has received government and security competency
designations from Amazon Web Services (AWS) just four months after
reaching Advanced Technology Partner status.

"Our journey through AWS' process to reach the Advanced Technology tier
of the partner network and to achieve the security and government
competencies represents Telos' longstanding commitment to deliver
superior solutions for our customers," said Rick Tracy, the company's
chief security officer and co-inventor of the original Xacta technology.
"Xacta 360 remains the premier cyber risk management solution for cloud,
as well as on-premises and hybrid environments."

The approval process for each achievement is rigorous and exclusive,
requiring extensive information and proof of excellence. It begins with
a specialized review by AWS, which includes customer references,
solution capabilities, solution architecture and solution security. Each
section demands exhaustive evidence of product adoption and results to
ensure adherence to the high standards the designations convey. This
strategic review uses pillars of operational excellence, security,
reliability, performance efficiency and cost optimization to promote the
building of dependable systems in the cloud.

Xacta 360 is a cyber risk management platform deployed throughout the
intelligence community, federal civilian agencies, the Department of
Defense and commercial entities across the globe. The solution has met
the necessary prerequisites and the substantial requirements on the Government
Competency Partner Validation Checklist
and the Security
Technology Partner Validation Checklist
. Also cited by the AWS
competency review team is the extensive use of Xacta 360 for risk
management and compliance of the Intelligence Community's highly secure
AWS cloud region
, where the solution helped reduce Authorization to
Operate (ATO) process times from months to weeks, as well as eliminate
four to six weeks of manual effort per project when compliance
regulations were updated and avoid months of manual effort identifying,
inheriting and managing controls.
