WWT and Cisco have partnered to provide Hosted Collaboration Solutions for the Department of Defense.
Cisco's Hosted Collaboration Solution for Defense (HCS-D) meets the DoD “cloud-smart” mandate and provides DoD IL5 FedRAMP authorization for protecting data and privacy under current government security regulations and policies.
HCS-D offers industry-leading Cisco collaboration services including voice, video, instant messaging, presence and conferencing service all on one integrated platform. These services are compatible with a broad portfolio of voice and video devices from IP phones to mobile and desktop applications. Taken together, HCS-D empowers DoD employees, civilians and approved contractors with the freedom to collaborate how and when they want on the device of their choice. It enables missions and objectives by providing a secure, scalable and flexible collaboration solution that is Cisco hosted and WWT managed.
Because it is a cloud service that is purchased through a subscription, agencies can shift to an operating expenditure (OpEx) model, paying only for what they use and scaling that use up and down according to their needs at any particular time.
