Apriva ISS added to NSA’s CSfC program trusted integrator list
Apriva, based in Scottsdale, AZ, announced on October 3 that they are now listed as a Trusted Integrator within the National Security Agency’s (NSA) Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program. This distinction indicates that Apriva has passed a strict government review and has met the stringent security and management requirements established by the CSfC program, setting Apriva apart from other wireless information security solutions providers in the market today.
The NSA/CSS’s CSfC Program was established to allow Information Assurance Directorate (IAD) customers to implement secure mobile access solutions using independent, layered commercial products for protecting classified National Security Systems (NSS) data. This enables government and security agencies to securely communicate based on commercial standards utilizing solutions that can be fielded in months, rather than years.
Apriva’s addition to the Trusted Integrator list enables the company to continue to operate at the leading edge of implementing, deploying and operating classified communications systems and solutions for government agencies, building upon the company’s past work in developing systems for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) which began in 2008 with the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Multi-carrier Entry Point (MCEP) program and more recently as part of the DISA’s DoD Mobility Classified Capability (DMCC) program, which the company initiated in 2012.
“Providing government-level security is becoming increasingly important as we see a rise in the number and complexity of high-profile mobile breaches,” said Jeff Ford, chief operating officer and president at Apriva ISS. “This listing validates our position as a leader in building comprehensive, secure platforms to protect information while government employees are on the go, and builds upon our past experience in securing the most important communications for government agencies.”
