January 22, 2014, Sunnyvale, CA, Project Hosts, the leading provider of Custom Cloud hosting for Microsoft Solutions, announced today that it has become the first Cloud Service Provider (CSP) to achieve SaaS-level compliance with the FedRAMP rev4 baseline of security controls. Project Hosts’ Federal Private Cloud solutions include SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, Project Server, Team Foundation Server (TFS), Virtual Desktop, and applications from AvePoint and BrightWork. With these SaaS-level FedRAMP compliant solutions, U.S. Federal and State Agencies can realize all the advantages of cloud computing quickly and affordably.
“Project Hosts is the first Cloud Service Provider to have demonstrated compliance with the rev4 FedRAMP baseline,” said Matt Goodrich, FedRAMP Director at GSA. “Through the CSP supplied path, Project Hosts’ environment was assessed by a FedRAMP-accredited 3PAO confirming the completion of the FedRAMP Security Assessment Framework, paving the way for Project Hosts’ customers to grant their Agency ATOs.”
“By achieving FedRAMP compliance at the SaaS level for Microsoft SharePoint, Project, TFS and CRM, we are removing a huge IT burden and expense for any government agency considering building their own FedRAMP or FISMA compliant deployment,” said Scott Chapman, CEO and Co-Founder of Project Hosts, Inc. “FedRAMP SaaS compliance at the Moderate impact level means that we have fully implemented all of the 326 unique security controls required to achieve this standard, unlike IaaS FedRAMP certified platforms which only fully implement around 70 controls, leaving it up each agency to implement the remaining 78% of the security controls.”
