(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Edge Hosting, LLC, a leader in highly available and secure managed cloud hosting services, announced it has received an Authorization to Operate (ATO). The ATO is a declaration that Edge Hosting’s CloudPlus Secure Cloud Infrastructure has met the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Cloud Service Provider (CSP) requirements.
“Achieving FedRAMP compliance allows Federal agencies to trust Edge’s secure cloud hosting platform as the foundation for their cloud computing initiatives,“ said Michael Altman, Chief Operating Officer of Edge Hosting. “The ATO represents a critical milestone in Edge’s efforts to deliver secure cloud hosting solutions to the public sector marketplace.”
The Agency granting the ATO and filing with the FedRAMP repository is the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). “DOL’s authorization of Edge’s cloud hosting services using FedRAMP requirements ensures the security of government data and paves the way for other agencies in using secure cloud services,” said FedRAMP Director Matthew Goodrich. “Other agencies can now leverage this authorization, potentially saving the Federal government hundreds of thousands of dollars by eliminating redundant security authorizations of Edge Hosting’s cloud environment.”
FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that standardizes the approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program is designed to comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA).
