Alfresco Becomes First Open Source Vendor to Achieve DoD 5015.02 Chapter 3 Certification

Alfresco Governance Services Is Now Certified by the Federal Government to Manage Classified Records

Alfresco Software, a leading enterprise open source provider of process automation, content management, and information governance software, today announced that its Governance Services solution has been certified against the DoD 5015.02 CH3, the Department of Defense (DoD) standard for records management. The company is the first open source vendor to achieve this distinction.

Alfresco Governance Services delivers a highly scalable repository which manages content and records of any type, including electronic documents, images, emails, videos, and physical records. It can now be officially used for managing classified content and records at the highest level of DoD 5015.02 security certification.

“We’re excited to announce this certification, which demonstrates our commitment to security and compliance. The features required for certification must include very sophisticated access control to content and records that ensures that only those who need access to content and records have access,” explained Tara Combs, Alfresco’s Information Governance Specialist.

Continued Combs, “Meeting the DoD 5015.02 CH3 standard means that customers in the U.S. government can now manage all their content – classified and unclassified – in a single, unified digital business platform that offers content, process and governance developed by a single vendor on a modern open stack.”

“This certification allows Alfresco to compete for business across the entire federal government, regardless of security requirements,” said Tony Franzonello, Alfresco’s regional vice president, Federal Sales. “It removes a hurdle that could prevent some customers from swapping out their entire legacy ECM solutions for Alfresco. It also demonstrates a commitment from Alfresco to be a top-tier provider of content, process and governance services.”

Alfresco customers outside of the U.S. government also benefit from this standard, since they can take advantage of the granular security features developed for certification and be assured that their systems are built on a platform that is the gold standard for records security. Alfresco has filed a patent application for the unique method implemented for marking security-sensitive content. “These security features allow us to meet standards in other verticals such as financial and insurance as well as global standards such as ISO 15489 and 16175,” said Combs.
