NETWORK DESIGNS,INC. (NDI) NAMED TO NSA’S CSFC TRUSTED INTEGRATOR LIST
NDi meets strict NSA criteria to integrate commercial products into classified IT solutions for DoD and Intelligence Community
Network Designs, Inc. (NDi) announced today that it was named a Trusted Integrator within the National Security Agency’s (NSA) Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program. NDi demonstrated compliance against the strict organizational and personnel criteria established by the CSfC program. This designation qualifies NDi to assemble and integrate components according to a CSfC Capability Package (CP), test the resulting solution, provide a body of evidence to the solution Authorizing Official (AO)/Designated Approving Authority (DAA), maintain the applied solution, and be the first line of response in troubleshooting or responding to security incidents for the Intelligence Community (IC) and the Department of Defense (DoD).
NSA/CSS established the CSfC Program ( https://www.nsa.gov/resources/everyone/csfc/ ) to allow Information Assurance Directorate (IAD) customers to implement secure IT solutions using approved commercial products for protecting classified National Security Systems (NSS) data. This enables government and security agencies to engage CsFC Trusted Integrators to design, build, and configure classified-level IT solutions in months, rather than years.
Being named to the Trusted Integrator list enables NDi to continue to operate at the leading edge of implementing, deploying and operating classified IT systems and solutions for government agencies, building upon the company’s corporate experience in providing management and IT solutions for the DoD, DOT/FAA, Department of State, Department of Veteran Affairs, and Department of Justice.
“Having served extensively within JSOC and the IC, this certification provides for a sense of altruism — continued service to our National defense as ambassadors for NSA’s Cybersecurity protection strategy,” said Anthony Zeruto, President and CEO of NDi. “NDi, being named to this list, continues our team’s drive to continue to integrate, deliver and support classified-level solutions for the U.S. government to help them meet their respective missions.”
This essential designation continues NDi’s increasing momentum in the area of intelligence collection and analysis technologies, cybersecurity, cyber operations, and secure infrastructure which began with Mr. Zeruto (Col, U.S. Army RET, former U.S. Army Cyber Command Director of Operations, NSA-Georgia Commander), being named President and CEO of the company that has supported the federal government for 23 years. Under Mr. Zeruto’s leadership, NDi opened its office at the Georgia Cyber Center to serve U.S. Army Cyber Command and NSA in Fort Gordon, GA.
