CyberCore Partners to Provide NIST Secured Data Center Systems
March 15, 2018
Elkridge, MD – 3/15/2018 – CyberCore Technologies (CyberCore), a leading provider of Secure Supply Chain Management, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), today announced the worldwide release of their National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Enabled Infrastructure (NEI) Solution, the world’s first modularized data center that combines leading data center products with NIST security standards and guidelines, delivered using an International Standards Organization (ISO) certified secure supply chain risk management methodology.
NEI solutions enables the end user to procure pre-configured, tested, and authorized data center systems with strong security features, referred to in the U.S. Federal Government as an Authorization to Operate (ATO). CyberCore aims to ensure all NEI systems are secure and trusted, using a proven scalable, and efficient ISO 28000:2007 and ISO 20243:2015 certified approach to secure supply chain management. This approach reduces the risk associated with counterfeit or maliciously tainted products being introduced into the supply chain. CyberCore is the only U.S. system integrator with both ISO 28000:2007 and ISO 20243:2015 certifications.
“The objective is to provide our customers with a rapid path to an authorized data center, or ATO. Our NEI solution is a NIST enabled, PEN (penetration) tested framework that is designed to meet the most stringent security standards to save you time and money.” said Tina Kuhn, President and CEO of CyberCore Technologies.
“This solution highlights HPE’s mission to make Hybrid IT simple for our clients,” said Daniel Dubois, Lead, HPE Federal System Integrator business. “NEI adds supply chain assurance, cyber security and speed to outcomes for our customers who have to work within an ATO process.”
So, What Is NEI?
Imagine an automated data center system that supports converged, hyper converged, object storage, and cloud technologies all behind your firewall. Now take that automated data center system, implement over 250 NIST controls with penetration and vulnerability validation, all acquired with a pricing model similar to a public cloud. NEI incorporates Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud technologies, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Virtualization, Red Hat Ansible Automation, Red Hat CloudForms, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, helping U.S. federal government customers modernize infrastructure and applications from on-premise environments to the public cloud. The solution is built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the first operating system to be Common Criteria-certified with Linux Container Framework Support, underscoring Red Hat’s commitment to delivering hardened and more secure IT innovations like Linux containers.
This NEI approach is unique in the industry. CyberCore and HPE’s NEI solution provides the documentation (which includes the NIST 800-53(rev4) controls), implementation language, and many of the required documents (e.g. system security plan, configuration plan, contingency plan, etc.), penetration results, remediation, and P&OAM as needed, as well as a Nessus vulnerability scan output (XML) to be integrated into an organization ATO process. NEI provides about 85% of the documentation needed for an organization to acquire an authorization, allowing the customer to go to an ATO status within weeks, not months.
