WidePoint Corporation of McLean, VA announced on July 23 that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Headquarters (HQ) has granted an Authorization to Operate (ATO) for WidePoint’s proprietary telecom management platform, ITMS. This ATO is a certification that ITMS, the intelligent telecommunications management system, meets the FISMA requirements for data security.

Todd Dzyak, president and CEO of WidePoint Integrated Solutions Corporation and WidePoint Solutions Corporation, said, “WidePoint is dedicated to safeguarding DHS’s sensitive information. That ITMS meets the requirements in accordance with DHS’s Security Authorization is a reflection of our commitment to providing enhanced security. The security authorization process was detailed and thorough. Thank you to the DHS team for their considerate review. We are very pleased for ITMS to be granted this ATO.”

Jin Kang, chief executive officer of WidePoint Corporation, said, “ITMS is the foundation of WidePoint’s TM2 framework. WidePoint is honored to be granted this ATO by DHS HQ. The Certification and Accreditation (C&A) process for receiving an ATO is very rigorous, time-intensive and costly. I’m very proud of our team for successfully completing the C&A process. The ATO is a significant differentiator between WidePoint and other vendors, making for a very favorable competitive landscape and market position for WidePoint.
