Security Architecture

SMS has witnessed first-hand the evolution of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) guidance’s and recommendations for FISMA compliance. From NIST’s Advanced Encryption Standards (AES) to the Continuous Asset Evaluation Situational awareness and Risk Scoring (CAESARS) framework, we have helped large agencies secure their networks, data centers and applications while maintaining the agility, speed, reliability and measurable performance standards that demanding users require.


By having a broad historical perspective on the FISMA guidelines and why, how, and when they were implemented, our engineers can assess the current requirements with a perspective that only a seasoned cyber security company can provide to our customers. At SMS, our expertise can be leveraged to achieve FISMA compliance by architecting all key assets on the network are properly configured and monitored for security compliance.
