Permuta's DefenseReady Solution Achieves DoD IL5 ATO in Microsoft's Azure Environment

95% of Security Controls Included in the Bundle Making ATO Faster

Permuta, the leading software platform company for federal workforce management and operational excellence, announces that its flagship software product (DefenseReady) has received the DoD IL5 Authority to Operate (ATO).

This authorization validates the security and compliance for enterprise-level, high-impact data aggregation, force readiness and leadership dashboards across the DoD and other federal government agencies.

The effort to secure the IL5 ATO was a team effort with Project Hosts, a Permuta Cloud Service Provider Partner. The Impact Level 5 (IL5) ATO was granted by DISA.

"Permuta and Project Hosts worked in tandem with a sponsoring DoD agency to secure the ATO within six months," said Sig Behrens, Permuta CEO. "And we are really proud that we can now offer 95% of the inherited security controls in a bundle to customers which accelerates the ATO process," said Behrens.

"Project Hosts works with Permuta's mission owner customers every step of the way to ensure an easy transition to the cloud for any DoD Cloud IT Project (C-ITP)," said Scott Chapman, Project Hosts CEO. "Project Hosts has achieved its DISA Provisional Authorization at Impact Level 5 which spares mission owners from having to go through the DISA A&A process and dedicating personnel to that effort. This is a valuable time-saving service offered to help accelerate the ATO process for a cloud environment."

With this authorization, customers may leverage Permuta's DefenseReady software to process sensitive, unclassified data in cloud computing environments, including data that involves complex workforces, related assets, training status, and weapons systems. This provides real-time enterprise awareness in a secured cloud environment for leadership to make mission-related decisions.
