HANOVER, Md., Nov. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KeyW Holding Corporation (NASDQ:KEYW) today announced that it was selected to participate in AWS' Public Sector Partner Program. This alliance with AWS strengthens our relationship and enhances KeyW's capabilities for collecting, processing, analyzing and disseminating information to its customers in the Intelligence, Cyber and Counterterrorism communities.
"KeyW regularly analyzes cloud technologies to assess performance, security, compliance and costs to support our customers' unique missions and adapt to changing requirements," said Doug Worthington, vice president of KeyW's Engineering and Mission Solutions Sector. "We navigate the landscape of cloud service providers, commercial vendors and open-source software to develop and deliver the highest quality, on-time and cost-effective solutions for our customers—and the commercial AWS platform is a key component of our toolkit."
Within six weeks, AWS and KeyW successfully migrated a highly specialized system to the new commercial AWS cloud platform for an Intelligence community customer. Upon completion of the project, the customer noted three key takeaways. First, the platform was cost-effective and provided highly available Internet services that can be scaled to demand. Second, KeyW was able to greatly reduce the time-to-release new features. And third, the platform provided significant automation and integration across its services that increased overall project productivity.
"The AWS platform, when coupled with KeyW's mission experience, gives us an opportunity to deliver advanced solutions to our customers that are low cost, scalable and maintain technological relevance now and in the future," Worthington continued. "KeyW is pleased to be accepted into AWS' Public Sector Partner Program and looks forward to furthering our collaboration."
