Authority to operate (ATO) certification and accreditation processes are important to keep an organization safe and secure, but they can also take months to complete. Today, so-called evergreen solutions are constantly updating, providing new features, experiences and functions with each update.

Managing change in a constantly-evolving world is central to an organization’s ability to remain efficient and effective. How can leaders close the natural divide between evergreen, cloud-based solutions and their ATO policy?
