SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in information security, today announced that SafeNet Government Solutions has attained Maturity Level 5 under the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) standard for software and systems engineering. Level 5 is the highest maturity level attainable under the rigorous standard, and assures U.S. military and federal agencies of superior product reliability, durability, cost control and schedule management, all at minimal risk exposure.
“Achieving Level 5 reflects the intense quality focus that has steered our product reliability and customer satisfaction initiatives for more than three decades," said Jim Summers, SafeNet Executive Vice President. "In using CMMI as our model for improvement, we continuously refine every aspect of our organizational processes to ensure we deliver a quality product to our customers. The accomplishment also underscores the fact that we are among the best of the best in this most demanding of industries.”
Conducted by JFR Consulting under the auspices of Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the appraisal encompassed 23 quality process areas and more than 400 practices. Developed by SEI, a federally-funded, Department of Defense-sponsored center for research and development, the CMMI applies to all phases of software and systems products development. Organizations reaching CMMI Maturity Level 5 are characterized as “optimizing,” meaning the organizational processes themselves ensure continuous process improvement.
