Cambridge Granted Trusted Integrator Status By the National Security Agency
Cambridge has been granted Trusted Integrator status by the National Security Agency (NSA) as part of the Government’s Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program. CSfC, founded on the principle that properly configured, layered solutions can provide adequate protection of classified data in a variety of different applications, is a means for Government agencies to leverage industry innovation and deliver information assurance solutions quickly.
The criteria and processes defined by the NSA in the CSfC Program provide a common baseline for CSfC solution integrators, enabling NSA and AOs/Designated Approving Authorities to assess the capabilities of solution integrators and accept their results. Cambridge was able to demonstrate it has the necessary skills, certifications, and experience delivering solutions and services for programs that require the layered security approach of CSfC.
“Cambridge prides itself in providing leading-edge, secure solutions. We are pleased that use of these CSfC capability packages as an NSA Trusted Integrator recognizes our ability to provide our customers with the latest commercially available technologies in a way that protects their most sensitive data,” said Cambridge CEO Kim Harokopus.
NSA has developed, approved, and published Capability Packages (CPs) that are solution-level specifications for organizations which have been granted Trusted Integrator status, like Cambridge. Trusted Integrators use CPs to protect National Security Systems data transported on Mobile Access, Virtual Private Network, Campus Wireless LAN, and Data at Rest solutions. This provides Government agencies the ability to securely communicate based on commercial standards in an approved solution that can be deployed to the field in a matter of months rather than years.
