Aquia Partners With RevaComm on CMS’ batCAVE Support Contract
Small businesses Aquia and RevaComm will team up on a five-year contract to support the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Continuous Authorization and Verification Engine initiative, otherwise known as batCAVE.
Modeled after the U.S. Air Force’s Platform One, batCAVE was launched to transform security approaches to software development. CMS Chief Information Security Officer Robert Wood previously said in a GovernmentCIO Media & Research podcast that the goal is to decrease the time-to-value for software developers.
Contract work will focus on enhancing the security and authorizing the use of the batCAVE platform, Aquia said Tuesday.
More specifically, Aquia will provide a range of security engineering and architecture services, including guardrail development and integration, continuous integration/continuous deployment and pipeline security, and development of DevSecOps tooling and automation, in support of batCAVE platform-as-a-service development.
The company will also deploy a purple team to provide joint offensive and defensive cybersecurity capabilities for identifying, exploiting and remediating security vulnerabilities related to the batCAVE platform.
Lastly, Aquia will help promote a culture of continuous compliance and governance with the goal of moving towards a continuous authority-to-operate for batCAVE.
Founded in 2021, Delaware-based Aquia is dedicated to driving transformational change across public sector, enterprise and technology companies. The newly established small business offers cloud computing, cybersecurity and advisory services.
