Secure Cloud Management

The Problem This Solution Solves

Today, DoD mandates the use of a cloud access point gateway to secure and control communication between endpoints and public cloud service providers. Users on the internet must traverse the DoDIN and the DoD’s cloud access point gateway to access public cloud services. That pathway has scalability, performance, and useability constraints making it difficult to collaborate in real time and to securely share documents in line with standard private sector practices.

The Solution

DIU implemented and formally assessed McAfee’s commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technology that promised to deliver fast, secure, and controlled access to public cloud services directly over the internet, thereby avoiding the need to pass through the DoDIN and the DoD’s cloud access point gateway. This has become a particularly valuable capability as more DoD members wish to access public cloud services from outside the DoDIN. McAfee received a Success Memo from DIU in June, 2021, which means that any DoD entity can execute an OTA production contract with McAfee without the need to recompete.

McAfee is one of the many companies we have contracted with in a variety of focus areas.

The DIU Commercial Solutions Catalog is a compilation of both our successful and transitioned prototypes. In conjunction with our Department of Defense (DoD) partners, we have evaluated, adapted, and tested these commercial solutions to solve your organization’s AI/ML, autonomy, cyber, human systems, and space challenges.

Prototype “Success Memos,” which enable DoD and U.S. Government (USG) entities to enter into Production Other Transaction agreements without re-competing, are available through DIU.

If you work for a DoD or USG organization, these technology solutions are available for purchase right now. To learn more about whether these capabilities can meet your organization’s unique operational needs or how to acquire them, please send a direct inquiry through DIU’s Contact Us page.
