The ITAR function facilitates compliance for customers that are creating a U.S. defense article or performing a U.S. defense service and wish to benefit from cloud services.
The ITAR regulation manages handling and access requirements for data and physical equipment, which involves the design, manufacture, and delivery of weapons systems. It creates a vital compliance factor for any organization that is responsible for the creation, distribution, and trade of weapons. However, it also creates a potential layer of difficulty for vendors that want to deploy cloud services, as the law may affect third-party organizations that handle ITAR-related data.
For this reason, Infor has invested in the controls required to help customers demonstrate ITAR compliance for CloudSuite Aerospace & Defense as required by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC).
"Keeping current with compliance issues within the aerospace and defense industry can be a major challenge, especially for companies that seek to modernize their operations with cloud-based services. This new component is specially designed to help customers manage government requirements while obtaining access to cloud computing technology," said Edward Talerico, Infor Aerospace & Defense industry director.
