Applied Insight adds GEOAxIS emulation to SHIFT

Applied Insight of Tysons, VA announced on February 11 that it has expanded its SHIFT cloud emulation platform to include GEOAxIS, the Secret cloud credential provider. This feature provides users temporary credentials for the Amazon Web Services Secret Region, allowing them to use their Public Key Infrastructure certificates to authenticate to Amazon Web Services (AWS). SHIFT already is capable of emulating CAP, the Top-Secret cloud credential provider. With GEOAxIS added to its capabilities, SHIFT becomes the first and only available full-scale cloud emulation platform for defense and intelligence communities.  

 “This is a major milestone for us in the development of SHIFT, and we are excited to be able to deliver the first truly full-scale emulation platform to serve the Secret and Top Secret needs of customers,” said Adam Gruber, CTO of Applied Insight. “Applied Insight’s focus is on meeting the changing needs of our customers, and we will continue to seek ways to further enhance and innovate our platforms for their ongoing mission success.” 

 SHIFT is used by government and commercial customers to develop, test and remediate software prior to deploying it in the classified regions of government clouds. The platform provides detailed feedback on interactions that a customer’s workload makes within these environments, greatly reducing time and costs by eliminating rework and reconfigurations. The inclusion of GEOAxIS expands SHIFT’s reach throughout the Secret cloud region. SHIFT has been recognized by the 2020 Government Innovation Awards for its groundbreaking cloud technology developments. Applied Insight continues to update and enhance the SHIFT platform for improved user experience and efficiency.   

 Applied Insight has recently partnered with government technology solutions company Vertosoft to expand distribution of SHIFT to federal government customers. Vertosoft specializes in helping government organizations rapidly gain access to advanced and emerging technology. The company provides streamlined access to these solutions through a wide variety of government contract vehicles, including GSA IT Schedule 70, The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS) contract, U.S. Army ITES-SW2 and others.
