Austin, TX, United States, 2022/03/18 - Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) for Government has achieved FedRAMP+ authorization, adding to Oracle CIoud’s growing list of DISA and FedRAMP High JAB authorizations - FedRAMP.gov / Oracle.com. NYSE, NASDAQ: ORCL
Now, the US intelligence community can take advantage of more cost-effective, highly secure cloud services, including Oracle Cloud VMware Solution, OCI Data Science, and Oracle Exadata Cloud Service, in the FedRAMP+ Augmented Environment.
The FedRAMP program (fedramp.gov) establishes a risk-based approach to standardize the adoption and use of cloud services by the federal government. Achieving the FedRAMP+ authorization signifies that OCI meets the additional security requirements layered on top of FedRAMP High specifications for defense and intelligence agency systems.
“Oracle’s deep commitment to the US federal government spans more than 40 years and with the shift to cloud, that focus has not wavered,” said Glen Dodson, senior vice president, national security group, Oracle. “Oracle continues to invest heavily to bring commercial cloud innovation and parity to the DoD and intelligence community to run their most-demanding missions at all security classification levels.”
Today, federal agencies can take advantage of 72 FedRAMP High JAB authorized cloud services available in Oracle’s US government regions. The authorizations demonstrate Oracle Cloud’s ability to meet increased protection levels for both external and insider threats, including protecting controlled unclassified information.
