Telos and AWS Partner on Xacta Improvements


Telos, a provider of security solutions and services to the government, has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to add to the Xacta IT GRC product suite. Xacta now integrates with the AWS Enterprise Accelerator for Compliance, a security-focused, standardized architecture solution for security professionals.

Through the partnership, each program or project automatically inherits security controls from the AWS Enterprise Accelerator for Compliance. This inheritance represents a substantial reduction of time required for controls configuration.

Xacta allows users to select which regulations apply to their organization, generate and auto-populate a compliance package specific to their cloud environment and complete the process via a friendly wizard-based application.

“We constantly hear that security and compliance are top of mind for our customers, but they can both be time-consuming and resource-intensive processes. For that reason, we’ve created the AWS Enterprise Accelerator for Compliance as a framework to help compress and simplify compliance processes,” said Teresa Carlson, vice president, worldwide public sector for Amazon Web Services, Inc.

Xacta includes a range of security services including more than 100 leading regulations and policies and more than 5,000 requirements and controls for IT risk compliance and management.
