OpenFISMA+© Logo

The robust research and development (R&D) efforts at Telesis deliver innovative solutions to exceed our clients’ expectations.  We understand that it is vital for our clients to meet regulatory requirements to mitigate risk to their systems, networks and our nation.

Telesis has developed OpenFISMA+©, an open source application designed to reduce the complexity and automate regulatory requirements of  complex security frameworks like the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) ; the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Risk Management Framework (RMF); ISO frameworks etc. OpenFISMA+© is a workflow based security management tool that aids in meeting compliance requirements.  OpenFISMA+© provides access to metrics that define current security posture and provide a dashboard of information for status review by executives, auditors and security management stakeholders.

OpenFISMA+© creates a comprehensive, modular approach to IT security management enhancing the ability to stay on track with compliance, reduce labor hours and track findings, vulnerabilities and the Security assessment and Authorization efforts. One of the primary FISMA requirements is to track, manage, and monitor agency Plans of Actions and Milestones (POAMs) for security findings and control deficiencies.  The Findings module makes this information easily accessible and organized.  The security authorization module ensures workflows and processes are in place from the Prepare to the Continuous Monitoring Phase. The vulnerabilities module assists in tracking the work needed to close the vulnerability or convert it into a POA&M. OpenFISMA+© allows the integration with your current tools and systems using powerful API’s and is easily deployable in the cloud or on premise based on need.

We constantly profile and optimize the back end to ensure ease-of-use and speed through Agile software development.  We continuously develop OpenFISMA+© through short iterations to deliver new releases that will immediately benefit our clients.  Following the Agile Manifesto, we focus on the current iteration before moving forward to the next.  This enables us to address the lessons learned from the previous iterations sooner rather than later.
