DOC Phase 1 HQ Wireless
The Department of Commerce (DoC) is headquartered in the J. Edgar Hoover Building in downtown Washington, D.C., one of the world’s largest and most complex enclosed spaces. With over 2,500 daily employee sign-ons and hundreds of daily visitors, DoC faced a significant challenge in providing high performance network access, using 802.1x authentication across 7 departments, each with a separate Active Directory server. TekSynap assessed the physical environment, IT infrastructure, and the business requirements of DoC leadership. Applying our expertise with the Cisco ISE (Identity Services Engine) and the Cisco wireless platform, we created a system configuration that seamlessly authenticates wired and wireless users on the network. DoC staff and visitors can be productive, access the internet, and collaborate securely wherever they are in the building and whatever device they are using.
NOAA Princeton Campus
NOAA manages and operates the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) on the Princeton University Campus. GFDL is one of the world’s first supercomputers and is critical to our understanding global climate patterns, air quality, and the interactions between a changing climate and the ocean. With a variety of desktop operating systems (including Microsoft, Apple, and Linux), GFDL faced a significant challenge in providing 802.1x authentication for secure, reliable, high performance network access. TekSynap assessed GFDL’s IT infrastructure and user needs, and configured Cisco’s ISE (Identity Services Engine) tool to provide secure authentication for all registered users. By collaborating with GFDL’s DNS, AD, DCP, and networking teams, our authentication solution enables secure, high performance Single Sign-On network access across GFDL.
The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is headquartered in NOAA’s Silver Spring, MD headquarters campus, near Washington, D.C. With hundreds of daily employee sign-ons and daily visitors, NMFS sought to enhance its security posture by implementing 802.1x authentication. After a false start, NMFS contracted with TekSynap to ensure a successful implementation. As a “White List” Cisco integrator, TekSynap has demonstrated our ability to design and install successful systems on the various Cisco platforms without the time and expense of third party verification. Our solution for NMFS is an ISE (Identity Services Engine) configuration coupled with a Cisco AnyConnect implementation that seamlessly authenticates users to the LAN. NMFS staff are productive and secure, wherever they’re located throughout the campus.
TekSynap is committed to industry best practices and standards and has attained Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)-SVC L3 and CMMI-DEV L3 certifications, as well as ISO 9001:2015, ISO 20000:2018, ISO 27001:2013 registration, we offer the process maturity necessary to successfully deliver on the NESDIS NIIS-II requirements. TekSynap has leveraged these processes as a premier small business prime contractor on Civilian and Department of Defense (DoD) scientific and regulatory mission critical programs. This includes providing core IT services to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for Systems, Networks, and Cross Cutting (SNCC) services ($64M), managing a single award IT support and cybersecurity services contract for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) ($435M), and performing on 46 different TOs in support of the Defense Logistics Agency J6 Enterprise Technology Services (DLA JETS) ($145M). Our experience successfully leading projects of similar size, scope, and complexity provides the needed assurance of proven successful techniques and mature processes to achieve NIIS-II program objectives and Service Level Agreements (SLAs). TekSynap is a known incumbent for NOAA with performance in Main commerce Herbert C. Hoover Building (HCHB) supporting NOAA, NOAA Fisheries, and NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) in Princeton, NJ.
