ManTech Partners With DISA to Develop GovLab’s Zero Trust Reference Architecture
ManTech has revealed that it has worked with the Defense Information Systems Agency to write and design the Zero Trust Reference Architecture for the Department of Defense’s cloud-based Zero Trust Government Laboratory.
GovLab is the first DOD facility dedicated to evaluating zero trust capabilities against the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Risk Management Framework 800-53 controls, ManTech said. The laboratory uses automation tools to assess such capabilities in various use cases and identify their strengths and weaknesses.
According to David Hathaway, executive vice president and general manager of ManTech’s defense sector, the architecture is designed to improve the enterprise security posture in support of the digital transformation and cloud migration efforts of defense agencies. It allows a self-paced, phased implementation to help enterprise owners achieve zero trust maturity with managed risk and a controlled time investment, he added.
The second version of the Zero Trust Reference Architecture was published in June 2022, more than a year after its first version was released. ManTech said the architecture is currently being used to provide over 14,000 employees, customers, partners and subcontractors with secure networks and infrastructure.
