Access360, a security provider specializing in resource-provisioning management
solutions, has opened a new office in Washington, D.C., to help make its
products more accessible to government customers.
A recent General Accounting Office report found serious security issues
among a host of federal agencies with regard to unauthorized access to sensitive
information, and Access360's RPM solutions help to eliminate those issues,
said Todd Leto, director of federal sales at the company.
"These federal agencies got pounded in the recent GAO report, with all
24 basically failing access control," Leto said. "A lot of federal security
managers have major concerns about that, and that is basically what our
Access360's enRole software serves as a centralized point of control
for managing user access to the more than 50 computing systems used by federal
agencies. Depending on the specific policy, enRole can turn on — and off — user access to myriad systems, and provides an audit trail for tracking
changes and usage that are required of government agencies.
Access360's new federal office is about 80 percent staffed. It is now
working on six opportunities — with both civilian and Department of Defense
agencies — that are moving into the "proof of concept" phase, Leto said.
Each agency's solution will cost anywhere from $100,000 to more than
$1 million, depending on the size of the installation and the number of
users, Leto said. Access360 solutions are also now available on the General
Services Administration schedule through DLT Solutions Inc., he added.
