FedRAMP Authorization for Managed Cloud Services - Why it's Important

Studies show that at least 82% of enterprises had a hybrid cloud strategy, up from 74% recorded in 2014 and the numbers that are trickling in for 2015 are pretty phenomenal too. With such a high level of utilization, the landscape can get crowded and regulation for public and private sectors can shift and change rapidly, making it feel like the Wild West.

Back in 2010, the Whitehouse stepped in and introduced a new policy around IT reform, putting parameters around emerging CSPs, specifically the ones that wanted to do business with a Federal Agency or the Federal Government. In the simplest terms, it provides a standardized way of vetting cloud providers. From the security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring, it’s an intense audit all around. But once you’ve been given the green light, you’ve been declared cyber secure and your company is fully authorized to work with all government agencies.

Check out FedRAMP’s Program Overview for more information.

VAZATA recently had the distinction of receiving Federal Risk Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP?) authorization for Managed Cloud Services after committing to a process that took a little over five years to complete; with that VAZATA was named the 21st company to reach that achievement.

What does that mean for you?

Government agency or not, you can take advantage of where you store your mission critical data. Our FedRAMP security authorization is the highest level of security attainable and with an intense audit performed every 30-days so you know your data is fully protected.

We’ve recently made an announcement about the milestone to shed light around our Virtual Federal Image (VFI) platform and its benefits, including the common tools, processes, and ease of provisioning, all while affording agencies a level of security that is not normally available in existing public cloud environments.

This new level of certification will enable VAZATA to provide the company’s Virtual Federal Image Cloud Platform to government agencies and enterprise supporting government agencies that are working with sensitive data, delivering the highest levels of security and performance set by FedRAMP’s stringent compliance standards
