OnWire Wins the IBM Bluemix Federal Challenge with OnCloud® Identity and Access Management Integrated App

OnWire Consulting Group (OnWire) won the IBM Bluemix Federal Challenge that was held at the IBM Federal Cloud Innovation Center in Washington, DC.  The event promoted the development of innovative solutions for Government using the IBM Bluemix platform, an open-standards, cloud-based platform for building, managing, and running apps of all types – such as web, mobile, big data, and smart devices on the cloud.  The OnWire solution, “Navigating National and State Parks,” demonstrated rapid development of a mobile web app that was built and delivered securely on the cloud.

IBM was seeking to highlight the most innovative uses of its Bluemix platform to leverage open data with creativity to tackle real-world problems and enhance forms of citizen engagement. The Bluemix Challenge focused on applications that addressed the needs of providing rural access to knowledge and leveraging www.data.gov to provide the public with information to keep America safe and better respond in the event of a crisis or natural disaster. Anne Altman, general manager of IBM US Federal and Government Industries, was among the distinguished panel of judges, which included IBM technology leaders and industry experts.

OnWire’s winning solution demonstrated the use of its new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud offering, OnCloud®, to provide application security with Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multifactor Authentication (MFA) – meeting FISMA requirements for moderate impact applications and systems.

OnCloud® Identity and Access Management is now FedRAMP Ready and available for review by Government customers in the GSA Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) repository. OnCloud’s SaaS security boundary is portable and designed to be hosted in any virtualized, cloud-computing environment. OnCloud® is infrastructure agnostic and can be deployed in a customer’s infrastructure of choice. Deployment models include private, public, and hybrid clouds.
