Telos Announces Xacta for Microsoft Azure

Telos Corporation has announced the integration of Xacta into Microsoft Azure Government and Azure Government Secret to accelerate risk management and compliance processes.

Xacta integrates with Azure Policy and Blueprints, enabling customers to centrally manage compliance policies, track their compliance status, and enforce policies to ensure compliance. Xacta can analyze IT asset information collected seamlessly from workloads and systems, enabling greater efficiency when moving workloads to Azure. Xacta can also automatically inherit common security controls from Azure via provider projects.

Xacta streamlines and automates many labor-intensive tasks associated with key security frameworks such as the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF), NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), FedRAMP, and ISO 27001. By integrating with Xacta, Azure Policy automatically generates a large portion of the required accreditation package, reducing the manual effort required of authorizing officials and freeing up their time to focus on making critical risk decisions.
