FREMONT, CA: Leading cloud service providers including Amazon Web services, Microsoft and CSRA have been empowered with a key U.S. government authorization that enables federal agencies to store highly sensitive data on their cloud computing services.

The three vendors met rigorous security standards to achieve a Federal Risk Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) High Baseline accreditation.  The FedRAMP high baseline, including more than 400 security controls, allows federal agencies to use AWS for highly sensitive workloads, including personal information. About half of the U.S. government's annual US$80 billion IT budget is spent on systems covered by the high baseline.

FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

AWS GovCloud (US)

The AWS GovCloud provides scalable cost-efficient solutions for the US Federal Government, the cloud services can be employed to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and increase innovation across Civilian agencies and the Department of Defense. AWS GovCloud (US) is an isolated AWS region designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud, helping customers support their U.S. government compliance requirements, including the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

CSRA ARC-P IaaS

CSRA’s cloud offerings, which include cloud migration, development, and a range of managed services, enable customers to move to a secure cloud environment at their pace. CSRA’s ARC-P Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud offering is one of the most security compliant clouds available for our federal customers. This major accomplishment in security enhancement reassures customers that CSRA is vigilant in providing highly secure government cloud services.

Microsoft Azure Government Cloud

Azure Government is a flexible cloud service which supports a vast array of services, tools and programming languages within scalable solutions. With the ability to use multiple hybrid scenarios, US government agencies and their partners can build and deploy solutions on-premises or in the cloud.
