7/16/17

CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL) has joined the Cloud Security Alliance, the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help secure cloud computing environments.

“Joining CSA means our customers gain the best possible path forward when addressing cloud computing challenges,” said Gay Porter, vice president of Engility’s Technical Solutions Group. “We look forward to collaborating with others in the industry to maintain best practices and drive innovation and advancements around cloud security. We bring extensive systems engineering and enterprise modernization expertise and solutions, such as the recently introduced Cloud ASCEND™.”

Engility’s Cloud ASCEND™ combines state-of-the-art commercial cloud tools with a proprietary methodology and team of certified cloud experts to transform organizations’ digital enterprise. Scalable and tailorable, the tool designs secure and resilient cloud and hybrid enterprise architectures. These new architectures can be modeled using computer-aided design tools before any applications are actually migrated to the cloud. Cloud ASCEND also develops and tests systems bound for the Intelligence Community’s (IC) C2S cloud in an unclassified emulator, saving time and money while helping to design the optimal solution based on specific client needs.

The company helps government organizations with digital transformation. Engility combines state of the art commercial tools with deep operational and mission understanding to deliver secure, modern IT infrastructure to our customers. For example, in 2016, Engility helped the Defense Information Systems Agency establish a Virtual Operating Environment that supports all unclassified laboratory needs within the Joint Interoperability Test Command.

“We’re pleased to welcome Engility to CSA. As a leading aerospace and defense company, Engility brings a fresh perspective and new, innovative tools and approaches to our organization and the clients we serve,” said Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance.
