DOD Confers Impact Level 5 Provisional Authorization on Rebellion Defense’s Nova

National security software provider Rebellion Defense has announced that its Nova software-as-a-service solution received an Impact Level 5 provisional authorization from the Department of Defense.

The DOD’s Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office sponsored Nova’s assessment by the Defense Information Systems Agency, Rebellion said Wednesday.

Having an IL5 PA means the DOD and related agencies can deploy the SaaS solution faster, the company explained.

Rebellion CEO Ben FitzGerald said the designation indicates that his company’s security controls underwent a stringent assessment. He added that national security organizations can now avoid having to spend on lengthy assessments before deploying Nova’s automated adversary emulation capabilities in production environments.

The DOD uses Impact Levels to categorize data and associated security requirements based on sensitivity. IL5 is the highest level for controlled unclassified information, Rebellion said.

The company added that it utilizes Nova to meet the cybersecurity requirements of the National Nuclear Security Administration and the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical.
