Terremark, a Verizon Company, and its delivery partner, URS Corporation's information technology business URS-Apptis, today announced that The Enterprise Cloud: Federal Edition is one of the first Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions to be certified for compliance with Department of Defense (DoD) security requirements, as tested and verified by the DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP). Terremark Federal Group and URS-Apptis are now certified to host a DoD application on Terremark's IaaS offering.

DIACAP certification is an intensive and stringent requirement for all IT systems that operate on a DoD network. As part of the certification process, Terremark and URS-Apptis worked with the DoD to configure, test and confirm that The Enterprise Cloud complies with the DoD's security requirements and was accredited by an authorized official. DIACAP certification verifies that the information systems the DoD utilizes for its critical applications are highly secure and reliable. The certification for the cloud computing solution offered by Terremark enables the DoD to leverage the efficiencies and scalability that only the cloud can deliver.

Terremark's Enterprise Cloud: Federal Edition combines the power and flexibility of IaaS with the expertise, security and availability that government agencies demand of their infrastructure in order to meet mission-critical computing needs. The Enterprise Cloud: Federal Edition's highly secure architecture is designed to meet today's critical compliance requirements and has been audited against FISMA to the moderate-level and NIST 800-53 for existing federal customers. Terremark also can configure network connectivity to meet agency requirements, integrate customer-owned network and security hardware, and engage third parties for assessments or audits. This federal-only cloud infrastructure (Community Cloud, as defined by NIST Version 15, 10-7-09) is hosted at Terremark's NAP of the Capital Region in Culpeper, VA and the NAP of the Americas in Miami, which are top-tier datacenters that are purpose-built to house federal IT infrastructure. Terremark's cloud offerings are further differentiated from other public cloud infrastructure by providing advanced security options on the cloud.

URS-Apptis' professional services, network and system engineering, and software engineering capabilities have supported successful cloud migrations and deployments for various government agencies. In addition to design and implementation services, URS-Apptis provides on-going management services to ensure that the security architecture, boundary definition, and cloud operations are delivered in accordance with Agency certifications and SLAs.

"With our federal-only cloud platform being among the first shared infrastructure systems to receive DIACAP certification, we have once again proven the leading-edge nature of our secure cloud offerings," said Jamie Dos Santos, President & CEO of Terremark Federal Group. "This certification helps to assure our current and prospective government customers that the cloud infrastructure we have designed specifically for federal agencies meets the high standards for security set by the DoD and provides the reliable cloud-based computing resources they need to run applications vital to their missions."

"This certification is another important proof-point regarding URS-Apptis' expertise and commitment to support government adoption of the cloud in a secure and certified manner." said Randall A. Wotring, President of Federal Services for URS. "Our professional services offerings enable DoD and other government organizations to leverage the value of cloud in support of their mission while maintaining critical information assurance protections."
