As national security technology has rapidly evolved over the last few decades, so have the challenges. America faces new threats, which have moved from the battlefield to the circuit board. With this shift, government agencies are forced to keep up with today’s adversaries using yesterday’s technology. This is where General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) sets itself apart in today’s fight to keep America’s information secure.

From Legacy Hardware to the Cloud

As government agencies work to update outdated technology, many are transitioning from on-site hardware to storing programs, data and processes in remote servers or “the cloud.” Agencies are now using a combination of on-site data centers and cloud environments. Some of this outdated equipment – and its comparatively weaker security – is creating new threats for our adversaries to exploit.

“Some of the threats we see now are really related to legacy technology,” says Steven Oh, GDIT’s Director of Cloud Transformation. “During this modernization process, we will create more transparency and visibility into the agency’s technical footprint.”

GDIT’s work is strengthened by its close relationships with the world’s top cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS). This gives GDIT’s clients (and employees) unprecedented access to the latest and most secure commercial technologies.

“From a cloud migration perspective, we maintain more than 40,000 EC2 instances inside AWS alone for our customers,” explains Brian Fogg, CTO of GDIT’s Federal Civilian Division. This provides tremendous breadth and scale for our specific customers mission sets.”

At GDIT, Cloud Migration Isn’t One-Size-Fits-All

Different customers have different missions and needs. That’s why GDIT offers tailored solutions for each client. GDIT’s size, scope and experience in the field offers clients a variety of unparalleled solutions.

As Fogg explains, “GDIT is a unique provider of services that cover the whole hybrid spectrum. Whether you’re looking to deliver those services on local premises equipment, in shared service areas or directly to the cloud, GDIT leads the industry through our capabilities, contracts and intimate knowledge of the customer’s needs.”

But technology is only a tool, the ultimate driver is the customer’s mission. “What’s really exciting about GDIT is the mission focus,” said Fogg. ”As we tackle these cyber and cloud challenges, we’re focused on what’s needed for the mission – and what tools we need to make that mission successful.”
