ATARC is a non-profit organization that provides a collaborative forum for Federal government, academia and industry to identify, discuss, and resolve emerging technology challenges like the implementation of Zero Trust architecture.

ATARC Zero Trust Lab concept grew out of the ATARC Zero Trust Working Group, focused on novel approaches to security, risk, and governance. The Working Group Leadership Team includes:

Gerald Caron, Government Chair, Department of Health and Human Services, OIG

Trafenia Salzman, Government Vice Chair, U.S.Small Business Administration

Josh Brodbent, Industry Chair, BeyondTrust

Joe Faxlanger, Industry Vice Chair, PKWARE

Richard Toussaint, Industry Vice Chair, Forward Networks

Jason Brumfield, Industry Vice Chair, Lumen

Matt Venditto, Industry Vice Chair, iboss

Michael Cardaci, Project Manager, FedHIVE

Through a unique collaboration between government and industry, the ATARC Zero Trust Lab will showcase technical architectures and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) hardware and software solutions to address the Zero Trust use cases as defined by CISA. By enabling this hardware and software evaluation environment, ATARC aims to create a unique space for Federal agencies to better assess software products.

This automated, flexible demonstration platform will enable the concept of agile implementation and further enhance the ability to evaluate true cost of ownership by providing transparency into the products deployment process and multi-cloud capabilities.
