Lumeta and Command Information Partner to Provide Network Assurance Solutions to Federal Agencies

SOMERSET, N.J., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumeta, the leading provider of network assurance solutions for enterprises and government agencies, and Command Information, the premier provider of next generation Internet services, today announced a partnership focused on delivering next-generation network management and security solutions to federal agencies. Specifically, the partnership will deliver solutions focused on the Networx Transition Assessment, which formally addresses the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandates for Networx, the Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) initiative, and IPv6 adoption.

Agencies are required to develop transition plans related to these initiatives. The first step is to conduct a complete analysis of current asset inventory and connectivity across the network and to clearly define operational needs. Leveraging Lumeta's IPsonar, Command Information consultants can quickly assess an agency's current network environment. With this analysis in hand, they are then able to provide recommendations on how to strengthen network change strategies, address security weaknesses and help agencies manage, control, and refine policies and standards in regards to existing and future network security.

Command Information's CEO Jerry Edgerton commented, "Federal agencies are dealing with significant changes in how they both manage and deploy their IT networks. The Networx transition is challenging on many levels, making the joint Lumeta and Command Information solution extremely appealing. This partnership puts a powerful tool -- the industry's only comprehensive network discovery technology -- into the hands of government customers that need it the most. The combination will put agencies on a clear path to compliance in short order."

"Federal agencies are driving toward a managed-services environment," said Michael Markulec, chief operations officer at Lumeta. "To make the transition successfully, these agencies need an accurate assessment of all the assets that need to be monitored and managed, which can be a nearly impossible task if discovery is conducted manually."
