Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ cloud-computing platform has received Authority to Operate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. Securing FedRAMP Agency ATO paves the way for U.S. government agencies to easily and securely migrate mission-critical workloads to the cloud, while reducing the time, costs and resources required to evaluate the security of cloud services. It also helps government agencies address federal IT reform programs, such as the Digital Government Strategy, the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy and the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative.

FedRAMP is a unified, governmentwide risk management program focused on security for cloud-based systems. It provides standardization for authorizing cloud services, as well as conducting security assessments and continuous monitoring based on a common set of baseline security controls and consistent processes agreed upon by agencies across the U.S. federal government.

“Verizon operates one of the most mature and secure enterprise-class cloud-computing platforms used today by U.S. federal government agencies,” said Michael Maiorana, senior vice president of public sector markets, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “We are seeing accelerating interest in cloud computing across our public sector business, and achieving FedRAMP authorization underscores our commitment to providing reliable, flexible and high-performance on-demand computing solutions that enable the business of government.”

Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ (verizon.com) recently released State of the Market: Enterprise Cloud 2014 report found that 65 percent of enterprises, including the government agencies, are now using cloud technology, services and solutions as part of their IT infrastructure. The report also found that 71 percent of Verizon cloud customers are using cloud for mission-critical applications, up from 60 percent in 2013.

Enterprise Cloud: Federal Edition, the Verizon service that has received FedRAMP authorization, is an infrastructure-as-a-service cloud offering as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Available in multitenant and dedicated configurations, the service addresses the stringent security, reliability and flexibility requirements of federal agencies and their mission-critical workloads.

The service is delivered from Verizon purpose-built federal data centers in Culpeper, Virginia, and Miami, which feature multiple layers of redundancy facility, security, power, HVAC designed to meet or exceed government criteria for physical and environmental controls. The hardened data center facilities are under continuous physical and virtual surveillance, and are protected by round-the-clock guards.

Verizon Enterprise Cloud: Federal Edition is currently available for purchase from the GSA IT Schedule 70, as well as blanket-purchase agreements managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of the Interior.

Information on Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ portfolio of cloud, data center and related offerings for public sector can be found on Verizon’s federal cloud computing website.

Verizon is the leading provider of communications services to the U.S. federal government. For more information, visit the Verizon Public Sector Markets website.
