CSC Community Cloud Service

The NX Infrastructure-as-a-Service (NX IaaS) cloud system is a government-owned, contractor-managed General Support System (GSS) using VCE vBlock technology hosted entirely within two contractor data centers: CSC Norwich, Connecticut (Primary Host Facility) and CSC Newark, Delaware (Alternate Processing Facility). The system supports DHS/FEMA and future tenants by providing a platform on which to host major/minor applications using Windows-based and UNIX/Linux-based operating systems in a virtualized environment via VMware and relies upon Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) isolation to separate tenants from one-another.

All system access to NX IaaS for authorized personnel is managed using a mixture of Smart Card authentication based upon Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-12 requirements and Password Authentication in accordance with FedRAMP requirements.

CSC utilizes their Government Security Operations Center (GovSOC) to provide, but not limited to, the following services to support NX IaaS operations:

  • Network/Host Intrusion Detection & Prevention Systems
  • Security Incident & Event Management (SIEM)
  • Audit Log Storage & Monitoring
  • Vulnerability Scanning & Alerting
  • Security Incident Response Services
