Confidently Outsource Your Critical Applications

FISMA Compliant Platform and Services

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requires federal agencies to implement and support standardized IT security controls. These controls, defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), allow agencies to safely and confidently outsource critical applications to FISMA-compliant clouds, managed hosting environments and SaaS providers.

Designed to Address Strict FISMA Standards

More than half of all federal cabinet-level agencies — including Veterans Affairs, the Department of Justice, Homeland Security and the Small Business Administration — rely on Rackspace Technology for secure cloud and managed hosting services.

We also serve as a trusted infrastructure partner for independent software vendors, systems integrators and value-added resellers, helping them build and deploy successful FISMA- and FedRAMP-compliant SaaS offerings.
