Making IT happen

Four Inc. Achieves Certification as a Trusted Technology Provider by The Open Group

As Four Inc. continues to invest in the programs, infrastructure, and policies to address the government’s growing concern around secure supply chains and technology products, we are proud to announce our achievement of accreditation from The Open Group as a Trusted Technology Provider by meeting the Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard (O-TTPS) requirements. Four Inc. looks forward to continuing to provide outstanding service, now backed by proven best practices, to our federal customers.

The O-TTPS, a standard of The Open Group, provides a set of guidelines, recommendations and requirements that help assure against maliciously tainted and counterfeit products throughout commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) information and communication technology (ICT) product lifecycles. The standard includes best practices throughout all phases of a product’s life cycle: design, sourcing, build, fulfillment, distribution, sustainment, and disposal, thus enhancing the integrity of COTS ICT products and the security of their global supply chains.

The O-TTPS was developed by consensus in The Open Group Trusted Technology Forum (OTTF) where industry members identify best practices and processes. These processes contribute to the secure and trusted development, manufacturing, delivery, and ongoing operation of commercial products. This program is one of the first of its kind in providing certification for conforming to standards for product integrity coupled with supply chain security.
