Our team has a demonstrated history of excellence using agile software development methodologies with teams of highly skilled personnel who specialize in the Information Technology (IT) services of design, development, testing, integration, and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) of enterprise software systems for Government agencies. This means our customers can expect timely, consistent, and accurate updates throughout the lifespan of our endeavors, ultimately delivering a ready-for-launch final product on day one.
Our proven, iterative software development methodology combines our automated Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline with the agile scrum methodology to address dynamic requirements and stakeholder needs. Already applied to mission-critical systems across Federal agencies such as the DOJ, DoD, and GSA, our software development methodology offers a low-risk template for customer success.
- CI/CD Pipelines
Agile5 implements DevSecOps to improve our customers’ security posture and facilitate faster time to market. Unit, functional, and integration testing and cyber security are “shifted left” and automated from the beginning of a project’s life cycle. Agile5 enables DevSecOps with a day-one ready reference implementation of our automated Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline.
- Continuous Authority to Operate (ATO)
Agile5’s DevSecOps approach and CI/CD reference implementation offer our customers a continuous Authority to Operate (ATO) capability that improves the overall security posture and reduces manual effort. Real-time, accurate, and comprehensive dashboard views show compliance results from our Automated Compliance Engine (ACE©) and other scanning tools. ATO documentation inputs are automatically generated and saved to ease communication with ISSOs and authorizing personnel.
Since 2018, Agile5 has planned and executed the migration of legacy, on-premises IT systems to the cloud, including mission-critical systems across Federal agencies such as the DOJ, DoD, and GSA. As we have migrated these legacy systems, Agile5 has gained crucial hands-on experience developing common processes, tools, templates, Infrastructure as Code (IaC), and platform services. Our customers benefit from our cloud vendor-agnostic approach that builds flexible Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) components.
- Biometric enterprise systems administration, development, and O&M: Agile5 has provided biometric systems administration, integration, new feature development, and O&M since 2012 for the DOJ and DoD. For example, we built the new iris modality for the DOJ in 2021 to include new business workflows, EBTS-based interfaces, and gallery search capabilities.
- Algorithm updates and integration: Agile5 has experience both upgrading and integrating a vendor’s biometric algorithm updates and “recharacterizing” the legacy data. We recharacterized all of the DOJ’s biometric records in 2012 and 2018 during vendor COTS upgrades.
Continuously scan your cloud for NIST 800-53 cybersecurity compliance.
The Automated Compliance Engine (ACE©) custom tool ensures your cloud infrastructure is in continuous compliance with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-53 Recommended Security Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations. User-friendly dashboard views can be customized for your scan results.
ACE© includes a pre-populated security rule set that evaluates the configuration of the most popular Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) High Amazon Web Services (AWS) services to ensure compliance with all applicable NIST 800-53 controls. Additional cloud services and platforms are forthcoming.
ACE© allows for customization to tailor rule evaluation to your organizational needs. It also provides robust Application Programming Interface (API) access for easy inclusion in your infrastructure and Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines.
Our specialized security staff are continuously improving our rule engine to ensure ACE©:
- Covers the latest cloud services
- Is compatible with cloud service changes
- Provides actionable intelligence with each scan result
