FedRAMP Releases Cloud Security Requirements For High-Impact Unclassified Gov’t Data

cloudITThe General Services Administration‘s Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program team has unveiled a set of high baseline requirements for agencies to protect unclassified sensitive government data stored in cloud environments.

FedRAMP said Friday three authorized cloud offerings from Amazon Web Services, CSRA and Microsoft meet the program’s high baseline requirements.

The products are AWS’ GovCloud technology, CSRA’s ARC-P infrastructure-as-a-service platform and Microsoft’s Azure GovCloud system.

FedRAMP noted 80 percent of government data are categorized at low and moderate impact levels and that rate accounts only for 50 percent of overall federal spending on information technology programs.

The new security requirements seek to give way for the other half of the nearly $80 billion in annual government investments on IT systems that could potentially migrate to cloud infrastructure, according to FedRAMP.
