WidePoint Successfully Implements ITMS™ Instance within the AWS GovCloud (US)
Fairfax, VA – March 27, 2019 – WidePoint Corporation (NYSE American: WYY), the leading provider of Trusted Mobility Management (TM2) specializing in Telecommunications Lifecycle Management, Identity Management and Bill Presentment & Analytics solutions, has successfully implemented its proprietary Intelligent Telecommunications Management System Platform (ITMS™) in the AWS GovCloud (US).
The AWS GovCloud (US) is an AWS Region designed to address the specific regulatory and compliance requirements of U.S. government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels, as well as those of contractors, educational institutions, and other U.S. customers that run sensitive workloads in the cloud. Beyond the assurance programs applicable to all AWS Regions, the AWS GovCloud (US) Region allows customers to adhere to U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), and Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG) Impact Levels 2, 4, and 5.
“Migrating to the AWS GovCloud is the first step in our pursuit of a FedRAMP certification for WidePoint’s ITMS™ platform,” stated Todd Dzyak, President and CEO of WidePoint Integrated Solutions Corp. “FedRAMP is the new standard for government-wide mission-enabling, secure, and cost effective cloud-based IT solutions. This initial implementation of ITMS™ in the AWS GovCloud is a first for our industry and definitively positions WidePoint’s TM2 solutions ahead of the competition as it is the only solution to fully align with the new federal policies.”
Jin Kang, Chief Executive Officer and President of WidePoint Corporation, added: “By moving to the most secure, cloud hosting solution available, we are in an even stronger position to expand existing client relationships and add new customers. Additionally, attaining FedRAMP compliance will increase our operational efficiency. Once we complete the FedRAMP certification and accreditation and move all federal clients to the new platform, we will be able to leverage the FedRAMP Authority to Operate (ATO) across all government clients. We will no longer be required to pursue separate ATO’s with each individual agency, which will make our processes significantly more efficient. We believe this move will provide greater leverage to our operating model and will increase the competitive advantage we already reap from our long list of credentials and accreditations.”
