Acadis IT Security

Security & Architecture Rundown

The reality of a cyber attack on your department is as big as ever. You need a stable, intelligent architecture, a rock-solid security framework, and a dedicated team to ensure your data stays safe. As a turnkey solutions provider, The Acadis Readiness Suite runs on Envisage software in a high-security FedRAMP-compliant cloud environment and employs developers trained to recognize security vulnerabilities in coding. Through a secure web interface, you can instantly access all Acadis modules. It’s safe, secure, and offers enough flexibility for you to customize according to what your organization needs.


Envisage designs solutions purpose-built for the public safety, military, and government training domains. Thus, the Acadis architecture must necessarily safeguard sensitive and private information while simultaneously adhering to the information security laws, guidelines, and best practices across many levels of government, including both FISMA and NIST. We employ an overarching security strategy that can be best described as “defense in depth.” The Acadis security framework is designed to give your system administrator the flexibility to work efficiently, yet never at the risk of compromising secure data and systems.



Because we take the security of the data we are trusted to protect so seriously, Envisage put Acadis to the test against the rigorous FedRAMP authorization process. In mid-2019, Acadis achieved FedRAMP authorization at the Moderate-risk level. To date, Acadis has ongoing Authority to Operate within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. As mandated for ongoing authorization, Envisage information systems and control documentation are regularly audited by a third-party accreditation organization.



Envisage offers hosting services within the highly secure and FedRAMP-authorized Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud. The AWS hosting environment utilizes a well-documented set of structured controls and around-the clock performance monitoring, offering a 99.9% uptime guarantee (apart from scheduled routine maintenance), backed by Contingency and Disaster Recovery Plans in the unlikely event of failure.


Application Features

Application security features can be individually configured to your specifications. Acadis administrators can set security parameters like password expirations, password length and password strength.  Get convenient and secure logins through SAML single sign-on. Role-based permissions management allows your administrator to define functional roles, and then simply apply common sets of security permissions to that group of users. Functions like accessing personally identifiable information or seeing someone’s training are controlled by a separate permission. Changing grades, deletions, scheduling changes and everything else within Acadis are controlled by discrete permissions that allow varying levels of access to ensure ultimate authority rests in the hands of those it should. To create and maintain legally defensible records, you need to know who did what and when. You also need to know when someone changed or deleted information. With audit tables and an audit report, your organization is covered.


Technology that grows with you

For over two decades, Acadis has worked with public safety agencies to establish best practices and overcome unique challenges. Acadis solutions are designed specifically for public safety and are built from an assortment of modules that adapt as your needs evolve.
