Real-time intelligence software provider JackBe has announced that its Presto platform has been accredited with the Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) by the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM). To receive this award, JackBe had to meet the U.S. Army’s requirements for security, compatibility, supportability, governance and sustainability. All organizations managing information systems on the Army Enterprise Architecture are required to have the CoN, which manages the risks and impacts associated with the fielding of information systems, as well as sustains the health of the Army Enterprise Infrastructure.
Presto enables government agencies to access and distribute information inexpensively and easily, according to the company. “This really gives us an opportunity to further expand our footprint within the Department of Defense,” Elizabeth Edwards, JackBe’s CMO, tells 5 Minute Briefing. Analysts are given access to live, secure information that meets the strictest security requirements. “The cost savings are dramatic because once you get these platforms-as-a-service, you don’t have to re-provision a new one every time,” CTO John Crupi adds.
JackBe Presto is also certified as an enterprise mashup platform for the U.S. intelligence community, permitting the use of Presto by all agencies and departments that process intelligence information under the Director of Central Intelligence Directive 6/3. “It’s starting to turn these systems into more platform-as-a-service. When they certify systems like ours, they’re not doing it for just a single application, they’re doing it to introduce it into the infrastructure so you can accelerate the things that you build,” Crupi explains.
