Autonomic Resources Gets DoD Authorization for Cloud Service; John Keese Comments

John Keese, Autonomic Resources - ExecutiveMosaicAutonomic Resources has received a provisional authorization from the Defense Department for the company's cloud platform service offering.

The Defense Information Systems Agency‘s designated accrediting authority uses the provisional authorization as a preliminary approval for a DoD client, Autonomic Resources said Tuesday.

Additionally, the company’s cloud tool also holds a provisionally-authorized distinction for DoD’s enterprise following an Authority to Operate approval in early 2013.

John Keese, president and CEO of Autonomic Resources, said the company is preparing its ARC-P system for authorization at levels three and four after DISA's approval and for level five in early 2014.

The authorization builds on Autonomic Resources’ acquisition of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program Joint Authorization approval, given in December 2012.
