State and Local Government Agencies are Requesting FedRAMP Compliant Cloud Service Providers

FedRAMP_Security_NotWhile state and local government agencies are not required to adhere to the federal government’s “Cloud First” initiative, many are now requesting FedRAMP(sm) standards be met for their cloud deployments.

The reason:  it’s a combination of both economics and security. FedRAMP SaaS-compliant solutions allow agencies to eliminate the significant cost associated with establishing and maintaining a high-degree of cloud security; the GSA notes that it can save 30-40% of government costs for cloud computing. And when it comes to cloud security standards, you can’t do much better than FedRAMP and it’s 325 unique security controls.

Project Hosts offers two types of cloud solutions:  our commercial custom clouds for enterprise customers, and FedRAMP compliant clouds for state and federal government agencies.

We have FedRAMP compliant clouds for the following Microsoft solution platforms:

  • SharePoint
  • Dynamics CRM
  • Project Server
  • Team Foundation Server
  • Remote Desktop

Join Project Hosts at Microsoft Ignite, May 4th through the 8th,  Booth #246 to learn more about how we can help you sell into federal government agencies, state and local government agencies, and in commercial enterprises.  More information can be found at these pages, which include links to FedRAMP Pricing.
