The Dallas-based data center, cloud and connectivity services provider has completed the recertification and authorization of the GSA’s Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) for its CloudPlus platform under the IaaS and PaaS certification categories. This adds to a long list of certifications and authorizations; the company is now compliant with FedRAMP, HIPAA-HITECH, SSAE-18, PCI-DSS, Privacy Shield, GDPR and more.
The FedRAMP program was created in 2011 to reduce the risks of cloud services and empower government agencies to transform their legacy IT infrastructure to secure, cost-effective cloud solutions. It “provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services,” according to FedRAMP.gov.
DataBank helps to transform and cloud-enable FedRAMP/NIST-compliant workloads to deliver increased agility and predictable pricing while eliminating downtime.
“DataBank’s vision is to become the easiest place to host highly secure mission critical applications,” commented Vlad Friedman, Chief Technology Officer, DataBank. “Backed by a 24/7 SOC and NOC, we go far beyond the typical IaaS boundaries of the hypervisor, diving deep into the PaaS layer for operating systems.”
DataBank’s FedRAMP-compliant CloudPlus is currently located in Baltimore and Phoenix, with plans for expanding to two more locations by the end of the year.
