Telos has been chosen to be one of the awardees of the $247.7 million Army Cloud Computing Enterprise Transformation Basic Ordering Agreement, otherwise known as ACCENT BOA. 

ACCENT aims to provide commercial cloud solutions to support the Army Data Center Consolidation Plan, which involves moving thousands of applications to the commercial cloud in areas such as application analysis, security requirements analysis, business process re-engineering, data preparation, migration planning, training on the environment, service transition planning, cutover planning and go-live support.

"Telos will provide critical transition support, including guiding the service through the security and compliance efforts to obtain authority to operate (ATO)," according to a company news release.

"As government agencies leverage cloud technology to modernize their IT environments, understanding the complexities of the cloud and how this environment impacts ATO and continuous monitoring processes will be extremely important," Telos CEO John Wood said. "Otherwise, they will experience extensive delays in reaching their modernization objectives. Telos stands with the U.S. Army, ready to apply our extensive Risk Management Framework expertise and cloud security experience to streamline critical ATO and continuous monitoring processes, accelerating progress toward their goals."
