Haivision | January 24, 2023
Haivision Systems Inc., a leading global provider of video networking and visual collaboration solutions, announced today that Haivision Hub for Government has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) "In Process" designation and is currently available on FedRAMP Marketplace as the only video network service. Government agencies can securely stream live video via CDNs, OVPs, EVPs, and social media using the fully managed cloud solution. US Department of Veterans Affairs’ VA approved Haivision's FedRAMP (VA).
Live video helps governments succeed today. However, networking exposes agencies to cyberattacks. Even secure companies are vulnerable to cyberattacks. When streaming live video, Haivision Hub for Government protects public sector enterprises' largest risk of network exposure. CIOs can use Haivision Hub for Government to secure live video streaming in accordance with the rules from federal information assurance.
Mirko Wicha, President and CEO of Haivision, said, "Our FedRAMP milestone is a powerful example of Haivision's longstanding commitment to ensuring the security of our customer's deployments." He added, "In the FedRAMP process, we've worked rigorously to make Haivision Hub for Government an ideal solution to help government agencies stream securely via the cloud. We're very proud to be the first video network service to achieve this important FedRAMP milestone and to be among the few technology companies to achieve this authorization."
FedRAMP standardizes security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The FY23 NDAA includes the FedRAMP Authorization Act (NDAA). All service models and executive agency cloud deployments require FedRAMP.
Haivision Hub for Government has many features that can help agencies share live video content quickly and safely with internal and external audiences. The key features include the following:-
Live visual content distribution in real time: Share live video in real-time, giving up-to-date information and events and letting people work together in real-time on mission-critical common operating pictures.
Secure: Designed to meet the strict security needs of government agencies (Achieved FedRAMP supporting Department of Defense Impact Level 2 (DoD IL2)).
Scalability: Ability to serve a wide range of internal and external audiences.
Flexibility: Use the cloud and direct high-performance connectivity options.
Simplification: When supporting digital transformation, easily overcome network issues and technological debt.
Haivision delivers high-performance, secure video network solutions for mission-critical applications. Getting through rigorous third-party assessments and implementing FedRAMP-compliant policies to protect federal customer data and systems shows that commitment.

Rancher Government Solutions | March 02, 2023
On March 01, 2023, Rancher Government Solutions, one of the leading security Kubernetes and cloud-native containerized applications for the U.S. government, launched Rancher Government Carbide. The new solution is an advanced security solution for protecting the nation's software supply chain against increasing threats. In addition, Carbide makes it easier to manage Kubernetes security by giving users a better, more standard way to check and confirm that their software is safe and secure.
Rancher Government Carbide protects the software supply chain by using a centralized, secure container registry for end users and a secure signing key to prove that the software came from a trusted source. Carbide's pipeline also uses tools for scanning for weaknesses and making software bills of materials (SBOMs). Additionally, the solution supports the DISA-validated and Kubernetes' published management platform and distribution with Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) (Rancher MCM 2.6 & RKE2).
A tool within Carbide, STIGATRON, is built to authorize to make sure downstream clusters are secure. The tool eliminates system administrators' obstacles during the validation process by scanning downstream clusters automatically from the centralized Rancher Manager and resembling them to the STIG cluster, thereby enabling automated compliance with federal government security standards. In addition, the Carbide solution also includes airgap documentation and edge capabilities. It is additional support to the existing product suite of the company, designed to help customers overcome the security challenges associated with application modernization, containers, and Kubernetes.

Appian | February 16, 2023
On February 15, 2023, Appian, a software development company, announced that over 200 government agencies trust it for accelerated mission success through packaged solutions, low-code development, and process automation across various branches of the Department of Defense and Intelligence agencies.
With IT modernization, it empowers mission-driven agencies for optimal efficiency and effectiveness. It became popular in military agencies due to the automation of transformational processes through various platforms at a large scale through Appian Data Fabric. The agency, partnering with BigBear.AI and Palantir Technologies, has opted for Appian for the implementation of a single Global Force Information Management system (GFIM) in a recent contract. This system is a platform of intelligence which is providing a holistic view of the agency's global force structure. The two other agencies selected Appian for management deployments connecting data, processes, people, and applications in mission-driven workflows.
The Appian Government Acquisition Management (GAM) suite is a set of pre-built solutions designed for the acquisition lifecycle, enabling government organizations to make procurement decisions with confidence and clarity. It also supports the US Air Force CON-IT acquisition system. This system standardizes acquisition contract writing across the government organization. In addition, it drives acquisition and contracting efficiency, decreases costs, enhances functionality, and makes statutory changes quickly.
It offers solutions dedicated to government agencies' requirements and challenges, ranging from gathering requirements to contract closeouts. Its GAM suite will continue to serve agencies and upgrade to support their growth, from implementing the DoD contract writing system to the acquisition of the BPM-based acquisition management solution in the United States Federal Government.
CEO of Appian, Matt Calkins, said, "We are in a time of economic turbulence, and if we are met with an upcoming recession, like many are predicting, we're going to see the same symptoms we see in any recession. We're all going to be asked to do a little more with a little less. The demands will be higher, and the resources will be lower."
