Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud is engineered to meet or exceed the Cloud computing requirements of the U.S. Federal Government1, including NIST 800-53 High, FISMA, and S-CAP. A key differentiator for the service is Harris' patented trust enablement technology, which includes the Global Trust Repository and the Enterprise Trust Server. These technologies provide pervasive monitoring, continuous assurance, and supply chain attestation that the software and configurations in the Cloud environment are deployed and operating according to specification and have not been compromised. Trusted Enterprise Cloud is based on the latest technology from VMware, including VMware vSphere and vCloud Director, which enable Harris to deliver a robust, flexible, and secure Cloud service for the most demanding industries.
"Federal guidelines including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the recent TechAmerica CLOUD2 report are critical to the adoption of Cloud computing and are fundamental to Harris' Trusted Enterprise Cloud service", stated Wyatt Starnes, vice president, Advanced Concepts, Harris Cyber Integrated Solutions, and CLOUD2 commissioner. "VMware shares our commitment to delivering services that meet or exceed these federal guidelines and is a key technology partner for our cyber integrated solutions."
"Cloud computing is a top priority for CIOs of commercial and government IT organisations", stated Aileen Black, vice president, public sector, VMware. "With VMwares cloud infrastructure platform as its foundation, Harris' Trusted Enterprise Cloud meets the demanding technology standards of the U.S. government so that organisations from large enterprises to the public sector can leverage the increased operational agility, automation and simplicity of the Cloud computing model from a strategic business partner."
Harris is featured at VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas, which is attracting more than 20,000 attendees to learn about virtualization, Cloud computing, and the transformation to IT-as-a-service. This year's VMworld theme, "Your Cloud, Own it", emphasizes the powerful role attendees play in designing Clouds that meet the specific business needs and demands of their companies. With its Trusted Enterprise Cloud and its leading position as a cyber integrator, Harris works closely with government and commercial organisations to help them move their IT and business operations to the Cloud - whether they are private, hybrid, or public.
