SolaS® Secure Community Cloud Computing—Secured Shared Resources
Lockheed Martin offers a network of high-tech cloud computing centers that provide a secure, multi-tenant environment for government and regulated industries seeking the benefits of the cloud while achieving the cost efficiencies generated by leveraging a shared secure infrastructure.
We incorporate advanced technologies, cyber security expertise, IT governance and green IT practices in our community cloud solution. The result: an on-demand, scalable and federal standard-compliant Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering that supports a secure marketplace to procure mission-based applications.
Security and IT Governance as Differentiators
Our unique approach to secure cloud solutions incorporates security best practices that integrate with industry-leading technologies by EMC, Dell and VMware to ensure the integrity, confidentiality and availability of customer data in a community cloud. The differentiator in our implementation is the combination of technology controls with strong IT governance practices, including account management, access control, physical security and hardened system configurations to produce cloud solutions that are the best value for our customers.
As a cyber security thought leader, we bring more than 40 years of Certification and Accreditation (C&A) experience across various federal agency programs at all National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security categories and impact levels, including:
• Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)
• Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)
• Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)
We have designed our Secure Community Cloud solution with a focus on the FISMA 800-53, Revision 3, Moderate standard. We have been granted a provisional Authority to Operate by the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board.
The SolaS Secure Community Cloud implements a defense in depth design, from the security components comprising the perimeter networking Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to the proven security provided by the virtualization firewall capability that separates every customer’s cloud assets into distinct virtual data centers (VDCs) with complete logical separation from other tenants.
We offer a unique security control baseline for customers to leverage existing technologies and applications in their solutions, with significant cost-saving opportunities versus other cloud service providers. Each individual server is preconfigured, at no additional cost, with an:
• Anti-virus solution;
• Patching agent;
• Asset management agent;
• Log aggregation utility and;
• Back-up agent.
In addition, customers benefit from our enterprise Network Operations Center and Security Operations Center (NOC/SOC) with best-in-class monitoring and reporting tools, as well as a 24-hour service desk.
Lockheed Martin’s SolaS Secure Community Cloud infrastructure is currently in use by government agencies and energy/utility organizations, and as the platform for software-as-a-service offerings.
