SmartFISMA Paper Presented at Military Communications (MILCOM) 2008

Arlington, VA – 19 December – In its 27th year, MILCOM is the premier international conference for military communications, including government, military, academia, and industry. The November 17 – 19, 2008 conference gathers the brightest military and government communications subject matter experts from around the globe to engage in in-depth discussions about the latest in technology advancements. This year, Smartronix’ VP for Marine Corps and Navy Programs, Mr. Robert G. Baker, presented a technical paper titled "SmartFISMA". SmartFISMA is a solution that combines multiple security functions into an integrated, interoperable whole. The goal of this project is to remove stovepipes between security systems to ensure that U.S. Navy information systems security encompasses configuration management, vulnerability management and asset management as well as security compliance testing and reporting. By tying multiple security solutions together, U.S. Navy programs will be able to create and tailor security workflows more effectively and build repeatable security solutions.

When asked about the SmartFISMA solution, John Parris, Smartronix’s CEO said, "This is a great example of how Smartronix integrates leading commercial technologies into unique security solutions to meet complex customer challenges. It is a privilege to present this solution to the audience of MILCOM." The combined security solution of SmartFISMA has been deployed across the Office of Naval Research (ONR), and ultimately, it will be used as an example throughout the U.S. Navy and the Department of Defense (DoD) to illustrate the value of integrating security management solutions.
