FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. has announced that its Synapse Mobility Enterprise Web Viewer has been granted Authority to Operate (ATO) on networks in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The DoD awards an ATO according to a risk-based framework that analyzes a technology’s security controls within their IT environment.

“We are proud and gratified that Fujifilm’s Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer is now authorized for use at the U.S. Department of Defense,” said Johann Fernando, Ph.D., chief operating officer, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. “This ATO is a major accomplishment for Fujifilm and testifies to our ongoing commitment to bringing to market innovative technology that adheres to the most stringent security standards.”

After completing a thorough security assessment, the DoD determined that Synapse Mobility can be configured to meet its controls for Risk Management Framework. Specifically, Synapse Mobility can be configured to meet the DoD 8500 series and DISA STIG requirements.

DoD controls are customizable and implemented as part of an organization-wide process that manages information security and privacy risk. The controls address a diverse set of security and privacy requirements across the federal government and critical infrastructure, derived from legislation, executive orders, policies, directives, regulations, standards, and/or mission/business needs.
