Applied Insight said Thursday it has received a contract to develop and implement a commercial cloud capability for U.S. Cyber Command. 

Under the deal, awarded through its Stratus Solutions subsidiary, Applied Insight will use its Altitude platform as the foundation for building Cyber Command’s cloud computing infrastructure.

“We’ve worked intensively with customers and cloud service providers to address barriers to effective cloud adoption in government organizations, centered on security and compliance. Our Altitude cloud platform is one of the results of that work, developed within aiLabs, our in-house R&D engine,” John Hynes, CEO of Applied Insight, said in a statement. “It’s all part of our commitment to deliver accountable innovation to our customers — solutions that align with how people need to work to advance their mission. I’d like to thank USCYBERCOM for giving us the opportunity to demonstrate our value to them.”

Applied Insight said it’s responsible for “developing and implementing a secure, flexible and scalable cloud platform” and overseeing Cyber Command’s migration efforts.

The deal covers architecture design, implementation and security acceleration of the new platform built around the company’s Altitude “cloud platform-as-a-service.”

“Altitude transforms cloud utilization by enabling organizations to take advantage of the full power of the cloud while achieving total control, security, compliance and real-time visibility over their cloud environments as they grow,” the company said in a statement.
