JITC [Joint Interoperability Test Command] Report Confirms Centra in Full Compliance with DOD Interoperability Requirements

October 24, 2003

The first Web conferencing vendor to achieve DCTS certification, Centra continues to expand its presence in government and military markets, intelligence communities and other organizations with demanding requirements for security and compliance with established industry standards.

In 1999, the U.S. Congress instructed the DoD and the intelligence community to address the interoperability of available collaboration solutions. As a result, the DCTS was implemented to ensure that all collaboration tools used on DoD networks be certified against the DCTS standard, which consists of 14 interoperability criteria. During the certification of Centra 7, users were able to launch applications; import and export content, share applications, use multi-point voice over IP audio and video, annotate images, and utilize best-in-class security features, such as authentication and encryption, without interfering with other collaboration software components.

“Based on the current guidance from the U.S. Department of Defense, this certification by JITC/DISA allows all DoD customers to proceed with the procurement of Centra,” remarked Paul R. Gudonis, president and CEO of Centra. “Being the first Web conferencing vendor to achieve this certification is proof of Centra’s commitment to the federal sector and is a testament to the capabilities of our solution. The final report reaffirms Centra as a collaborative tool with proven interoperability compliance.”
