TeraRecon’s iNtuition Advanced Visualisation solution has been granted an Authority to Operate (ATO) certification on networks in the US Department of Defense (DoD).

TeraRecon’s iNtuition Advanced Visualisation solution has been granted an Authority to Operate (ATO) certification on networks in the US Department of Defense (DoD).

Currently, the company is the first advanced medical image viewing solution provider to have achieved a risk management framework (RMF)-based ATO.

The certification received by the iNtuition solution is essential for systems running on sensitive DoD networks in order to ensure system security.

TeraRecon chief executive officer Jeff Sorenson said: “Our close and ongoing collaboration with the DoD has made our iNtuition products better.

“We are proud to be the first in our product category to receive the DoD ATO, and are now working to further expand the presence of our products in military hospitals around the world.

“The DoD Technology Assessment and Requirements Analysis visited the project sites and completed an acceptance test of the TeraRecon Aquarius iNtuition systems.”

“Cybersecurity requirements like these are incredibly demanding and require nothing less than a full and focused commitment to process and quality.”

With the US DoD approval, the company completed the two installations of the iNtuition solution under the ATO at Evans Army Community Hospital in Fort Carson, Colorado and William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas.

Once the installation was complete, the team from the DoD Technology Assessment and Requirements Analysis (TARA) visited the project sites and completed an acceptance test of the TeraRecon Aquarius iNtuition systems.

TeraRecon chief technology officer TC Zhao said: “TeraRecon remains diligent and compliant with federal guidelines in all aspects of Security and Data Integrity.

“Achieving our ATO required careful adaptation of our design, development, and delivery systems. These efforts continued for several years, and represent another milestone in our commitment to both the DoD, and our PACS partners who bundle our product with theirs and operate within the DoD environment.”

The new ATO certification granted to the company is valid until January 2021.
