Company’s Work Results in Microsoft’s BPOS-F and Global Foundation Services Receiving Authority to Operate
Washington, DC, April 27, 2011 – SecureInfo® Corporation, a market-proven provider of cybersecurity services and solutions, today announced the company played a key role in Microsoft obtaining an Authority to Operate (ATO) from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Suite – Federal (BPOS-F) and Global Foundation Services (GFS). According to the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA), any system or application must be formally authorized to operate by a senior Federal government official.

"For more than three decades Microsoft has committed to meeting the needs of its Federal customers, including the requirements associated with FISMA," said Curt Kolcun, Vice President, Microsoft U.S. Public Sector. "We worked closely with SecureInfo based on their extensive expertise in applying FISMA and other relevant Federal information security standards and guidance to cloud computing solutions. SecureInfo has played and continues to play an important role in our ability to bring secure, compliant cloud computing solutions to the Federal government."

"Microsoft has a long tradition of collaborating with the Federal government to deliver high value, secure solutions in support of their customers’ missions," said Christopher Fountain, president and chief executive officer of SecureInfo. "We are extremely pleased to be working closely with Microsoft to ensure their cloud solutions meet the information security requirements of the Federal government. We look forward to continuing to serve Microsoft as part of our rapidly growing cloud security solutions business."

SecureInfo’s chief technology officer, Yong-Gon Chon, added, "Microsoft’s GFS and BPOS-Federal solutions have effectively satisfied the current National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) controls at a Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Moderate Impact level. This guidance represents the most comprehensive information security risk management framework available today. As part of Microsoft’s commitment to comply with the NIST Risk Management Framework, we are now providing continuous monitoring support to Microsoft to ensure information security risk is managed on an ongoing basis."

Federal government agencies are seeking to meet the objectives associated with the Cloud First Policy outlined in the 25 Point Plan published by the Federal CIO. SecureInfo’s cloud security solutions enable solution providers and government agencies to move to the cloud with confidence. The company works with its customers in interpreting and incorporating Federal regulations, standards, mandates and guidance to ensure cloud computing information security risk is identified, documented and managed up front and on an ongoing basis.
