When a large U.S. federal client expressed the need from the central IT department to deliver data protection to several internal business units in a secure private cloud setup, the CAS Severn team reached out to Auwau.
CAS Severn and their client needed the ability for a large business unit hierarchy to share a centralized data protection infrastructure in a secure way where departments and their users were kept separate from each other.
The combination of IBM Spectrum Protect and Cloutility provides the scalability, robustness and secure multi-tenant reporting and configurable workflow capabilities needed in U.S. federal entities.
Cloutility enables role-based user accounts and allows the departmental users to access their respective business units with self-service features and daily status reports. All committing actions are registered in Cloutility’s built-in audit log, and through settings the IT department sets up and manages various technical- and end-user workflows.
Cloutility supports the U.S. “Federal Information Processing Standard” (FIPS) as well as “single sign-on” (SSO via SAML 2.0) based on “Common Access Cards” (CAC) used by U.S. federal employees.Cloutility also supports “2-factor-authentication” (2FA).
