Iron Bow Technologies, a leading technology solutions provider to government, commercial, and healthcare markets, today announced it has met the rigorous criteria set forth by Cisco® and is now authorized to offer their Hosted Collaboration Solutions for Defense to its customers.
Cisco® Hosted Collaboration Solution for Defense (HCS-D) provides cloud-based, unified communications and collaboration applications within a highly secure, virtualized platform under a centralized management system. These applications include Impact Level 5 (IL5) certified voice, video, instant messaging, presence and conferencing to allow secure collaboration anywhere on any device.
Cisco® HCS-D has a provisional authorization to operate (PATO) at Impact Level 5 and provides the government with secure and customizable cloud collaboration capabilities to modernize and support DoD mission objectives.
Iron Bow’s partnership with Cisco® spans more than two decades. The company holds numerous Cisco® Master Certifications to include Collaboration, Data Center, Security, Cloud and Managed Services.
“Iron Bow recognizes the importance of delivering mission capabilities on platforms like HCS-D to support the Department of Defense in their most important objectives,” said Carl De Groote, VP of Federal at Cisco. “The investment in Cisco’s collaboration platforms combined with decades of past performance within the DoD has positioned Iron Bow as a key partner in offering Cisco’s HCS-D platform to our mutual clients.”
“Offering IL5 solutions that meet federal security requirements for Defense enable us to quickly bring collaboration solutions to the field for mission support,” said Rene LaVigne, President and CEO of Iron Bow Technologies. “This not only helps mitigate technology risk and reduce upfront investments, but enables the Department of Defense to put to use the most current technologies while meeting federal cloud mandates and maintaining fiscal responsibility.”
Iron Bow will begin immediately offering the latest technologies in Cisco’s voice and video conferencing, web messaging, presence and instant messaging through the Cisco® HCS-D program. For more on Iron Bow’s HCS-D offering, click here.
