Assured Information Security (AIS) Awarded ML2

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).

CMMI is a process improvement framework for software and engineering systems developed by Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and administered by the CMMI Institute. 

Maturity Level Two indicates that when appraised, AIS was performing at a “managed” level. The achievement of the Level comes as a byproduct of AIS’s partnership with Process Innovation firm Broadsword Solutions (Broadsword), a leader in performance innovation and process improvement. 

As pioneers of the agileCMMI performance improvement methodology, Broadsword provided integrated agileCMMI workshops, coaching and consulting solutions to help AIS achieve its capability goals. agileCMMI uses agile methods such as incremental delivery, continuous build and collaboration, applying the same techniques used when writing software to deploy process and help engineers embrace process.

“Our team worked hard to help AIS achieve a Level Two rating in CMMI, and I am very proud of them for this huge accomplishment,” said Charles Green, Chief Executive Officer of AIS. “CMMI certification provides us with a process for continuous improvement, which will help support and guide us in all aspects of the work done at AIS. We are already looking forward to reaching Level Three in the near future.”

“Taking an agile approach to adopting CMMI will help AIS consistently improve performance at scale, while strengthening AIS’s agile values,” said Broadsword’s president, Jeff Dalton. “We commend their achievement of Maturity Level Two, and look forward to their continued success.”
