Cyber Security Firm Integrates Performance Improvement Model and Strengthens Agile Values using Broadsword’s agileCMMI Methodology

ROME, NY, January 15, 2019 – Assured Information Security (AIS), a cyber and information security firm that provides government and commercial customers with industry leading cyber security capabilities and services, confirms its high-quality software development capabilities with the award of Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) for Development v1.3 at Maturity Level Two (CMMI-DEV v1.3 ML2).

We are already looking forward to reaching Level Three in the near future.”
