CA Technologies is looking to extend the lessons learned from the Transglobal Secure Collaboration Program (TSCP) to enterprise users.
The company used the 2011 RSA Conference to outline the benefits of the TSCP system, and how such a platform could be extended to create secure enterprise collaboration platforms.
TSCP is designed to help government agencies and contractors collaborate on international projects, and serves as a secure platform for exchanging information on complex, confidential projects.
Tim Brown, chief security architect and distinguished engineer at CA, told conference attendees that the system is designed for extremely large projects such as the construction of naval vessels.
"When they build an aircraft carrier, 50,000 partners is common. Collaboration is no longer just an option," he said.
Companies must be able to ensure the security of information when dealing with such complex operations, as well as remain updated on credentials and clearances so that terminated employees are not sent potentially sensitive information.
CA believes that these lessons may now be applicable to businesses looking to adopt collaboration systems within their own business and with outside groups.
"What the TSCP has done in a non-cloud world bringing together the defence industry is a great example for us to use when we move towards the cloud," said Brown.
In addition to looking to such frameworks for security, the company suggests that enterprises also take a close look at policies.
Brown explained that businesses can gain a clearer picture over which accounts and identities have access to sensitive information and specific applications.
