Deltek’s Cloud Delivers Trust & Security for Costpoint

In the world of government contracting, where regulatory compliance and data security are paramount, Deltek has emerged as a trusted partner for businesses seeking growth and success. With an unmatched 40-year journey marked by innovation and reliability, Deltek has consistently demonstrated its commitment to providing industry-leading cloud offerings, while actively pursuing certifications such as the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). This blog post explores how Deltek's unwavering focus on trust and data security has propelled its clients toward growth and maturity in government contracting.

For over four decades, Deltek has been at the forefront of empowering businesses operating in the government contracting space. With a deep understanding of the industry's unique challenges, Deltek has built a reputation based on trust and expertise and continues that success with the recent release of Costpoint 8.2. By offering robust solutions and exceptional support, Deltek has become a reliable partner for contractors navigating the intricacies of government projects.

Recognizing the growing need for secure and scalable cloud solutions, Deltek has consistently invested in developing industry-leading cloud offerings. Deltek's cloud infrastructure adheres to rigorous security standards, providing confidentiality, integrity, and availability for sensitive data. These solutions provide government contractors with the agility and flexibility required to adapt to changing requirements seamlessly.

Deltek’s Costpoint solution delivered in either GovCon Cloud (GCC) and GovCon Cloud Moderate (GCCM) supports the protection of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in accordance with FAR & DFARS contract requirements. Both cloud solutions have implemented the NIST SP 800-171 controls and our GCCM offering aligns with FedRAMP Moderate baseline requirements and supports the protection of ITAR data.

Pursuit of Cybersecurity Certifications

In response to the evolving cybersecurity landscape, Deltek has proactively implemented some of the most stringent security controls and pursued compliance with programs and frameworks suited for the GovCon community. This includes the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program, which is designed to enhance the security posture of organizations involved in the defense industrial base through independent assessment of the implementation of the required security controls outlined in DFARS 252.204-7012. By targeting CMMC Maturity Level 2 compliance, Deltek continues to demonstrate its commitment to safeguarding sensitive DoD information and ensuring government contractors' compliance with cybersecurity requirements. Once CMMC is finalized, the expectation is that this program will be the template for requiring all federal agencies to comply for protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

Deltek's commitment to data security is further exemplified by its pursuit of FedRAMP Ready certification. FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to assessing, authorizing, and continuously monitoring cloud services' security, and achieving a FedRAMP Moderate baseline shows a Cloud Service Provider’s compliance with DFARS 252.204-7012. With FedRAMP Ready status, Deltek can provide our clients with verification of our robust security measures and secure data handling processes and procedures, enabling those customers to confidently store sensitive data while conducting business with the Department of Defense (DoD) and complying with federal regulations.

A Vision for the Future

As the cybersecurity compliance landscape continues to evolve, Deltek remains committed to the GovCon community by staying current with industry requirements and anticipating clients’ data security needs. By staying ahead of emerging trends and regulations, Deltek ensures that its cloud offerings and security measures align with the changing industry dynamics. With a strong vision for the future, Deltek will continue to support government contractors in their pursuit of growth and maturity.

Deltek's dedication to guiding businesses through growth and maturity is best reflected in client success stories. By leveraging Deltek's cloud offerings and adherence to stringent security protocols, organizations have achieved increased operational efficiency, streamlined project management, and improved compliance. These success stories stand as a testament to Deltek's ability to empower government contractors to reach their goals.
