(Gawkwire) – FISMA compliance for U.S. federal agencies and their contractors is now simpler and more certain with managed hosting leader Layered Tech’s announcement of a FISMA compliance guarantee. Layered Tech is offering a FISMA compliance guarantee to federal agencies and SaaS providers who utilize Layered Tech’s Platform-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, or compliant managed hosting services.
A year ago Layered Tech offered a compliance guarantee as part of its managed hosting services for PCI-DSS (credit card data) and HIPAA (healthcare data). Since then, and throughout its history, Layered Tech’s compliant hosting customers have passed 100 percent of every compliance audit. Layered Tech is now extending the compliance guarantee to the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), which requires that federal agencies meet stringent data security requirements for IT services that they utilize.
With its FISMA-compliant Cloud and hosting services, Layered Tech delivers secure managed IT platforms on behalf of federal agencies or SaaS providers who sell to federal agencies. Layered Tech’s FISMA compliance guarantee, which is included free of charge as part of the FISMA-compliant hosting service, ensures clients that their hosted IT infrastructures will pass the FISMA certification and accreditation audit, as well as the mandated annual evaluations.
“Especially since the initiation of the federal Cloud First program, there is strong demand for FISMA-compliant platforms and services”, said Dan Tudahl, Layered Tech Government Solution’s Chief Operating Officer. “With our secure data centers, experienced staff and 100% FISMA compliance guarantee, we give SaaS vendors and their federal agency customers complete peace of mind so they can focus on their core missions”.
Layered Tech has more than a decade of experience building and hosting secure solutions that comply with FISMA and the implementation standards mandated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Layered Tech currently provides FISMA compliant managed hosting services as well as cloud hosting services for over half of the cabinet-level federal agencies, including some of the most security-sensitive federal agencies such as the Departments of Justice, Energy, and Treasury. In conjunction with Microsoft, Layered Tech recently launched the Microsoft Dynamics Government Cloud, a FISMA-compliant Platform-as-a-Service cloud offering tailored specifically to the high security requirements of federal government enterprise applications.
