Allentown, PA: Netizen Corporation, an award-winning Veteran-Owned provider of cybersecurity solutions, has been appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) V2.0 Maturity Level 3 for government and commercial cybersecurity solutions. The Process Group led and conducted a comprehensive Benchmark CMMI appraisal (#54557) that included Netizen teams in Allentown, PA, Arlington, VA, and Charleston, SC. CMMI is a process improvement training and appraisal program used to gauge a company’s overall maturity in the delivery of customer projects. It was developed at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and is required for many U.S. government contracts.

Netizen’s compliance with CMMI process areas were appraised through the examination of many types of objective evidence, including interviews with senior corporate leadership, program managers, quality assurance personnel, and other organization employees to empirically demonstrate that standard processes are being followed and continually improved across the company. Maturity Level 3 indicates that Netizen is performing at a “defined” level of standardization. This maturity level is only achieved by companies that have well-defined, repeatable, and effective organizational standards and processes for project management, software engineering, services, and quality assurance while maintaining a focus on continuous process improvement.

“This CMMI Level 3 rating demonstrates Netizen’s ability to track, audit, and continuously improve our standards, processes, and quality across the entire organization. Along with our ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certifications, it is also the clearest evidence yet that Netizen is a mature company with truly unique capabilities for delivering best-of-breed cybersecurity products and services to all of our customers in government, defense, and commercial markets around the world,” said Michael Hawkins, Netizen’s President and CEO.
