Leidos Introduces Zero Trust Tool Suite To Advance Government Security Standards


Leidos announced the availability of version 2.0 of its Zero Trust Readiness Level (ZTRL) tool suite. ZTRL is designed to accelerate Zero Trust adoption across the government in accordance with Executive Order 14028 and OMB memorandum M-22-09.

“Zero Trust is a multi-year journey with important ramifications for government agencies and the future of cybersecurity”, said James Carlini, Chief Technology Officer at Leidos. “As organisations race to keep pace with the rapidly evolving threat landscape, ZTRL version 2.0 helps them to rapidly and methodically implement Zero Trust capabilities in an optimised way.”

ZTRL simplifies Zero Trust adoption for government organisations, consolidating a six-to-nine-month planning process into less than 60 days. ZTRL 2.0 also adds continuous reporting, capability planning automation, and customisable dashboards that drill into plans and progress towards meeting the criteria set out by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Zero Trust Maturity Model and the Department of Defense’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) Zero Trust Strategy released in November 2022.

Leidos is a leading full-spectrum provider of cybersecurity tools to the federal government. The company’s cybersecurity experts manage some of the Federal Government’s largest, most critical networks. ZTRL 2.0 leverages this experience as well as proof points collected from over 250 products in the Leidos Zero Trust Proving Ground, in addition to the latest tools from partners including Zscaler US Government Solutions, LLC, Palo Alto Networks, and Cisco.
