FedRAMP Private Cloud Platform-as-a-Service

JAB Authorized, Fully Managed Compliance Platform

Run your mission-critical applications in an environment configured for optimal performance and the highest level of security and compliance.

With our FedRAMP private cloud and managed services, you get an environment designed specifically for federal, state, local and education organizations and the SIs and ISVs that serve them. This proprietary offering implements mandatory security controls for the most stringent government standards, including NIST SP 800-53 and 800-171 to meet FISMA, FedRAMP and DFARS guidelines.

Our FedRAMP private cloud is a fully managed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, blending the cost benefits and scalability of the public cloud with the security and customization of a private cloud.

Why Use Our FedRAMP Private Cloud Solution?

Fast Migrations

Migrate applications in weeks, rather than months. Our FedRAMP private cloud solution integrates industry-leading virtualization, networking, compute, storage, security and management technologies — and is pre-configured, reducing the time required for you to receive your authority to operate.

Our private cloud’s modular design makes security the top priority, while providing the cost-savings, flexibility and customization that government agencies, software providers and systems integrators need to meet their own unique performance and security requirements.

FedRAMP Private Cloud

Fully Managed Security

The fully managed private cloud transcends traditional Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) with its comprehensive compute and virtualization functions, architecture and device support. We have the capability to manage and secure the FedRAMP private cloud all the way through the virtual operating system, delivering a hardened operating system along with network components built to DISA Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) standards.

Because we manage 80% of the physical, network and host security requirements and controls, your organization can more readily meet FedRAMP, FISMA and agency-specific security requirements.

Plus, gain peace of mind knowing that your infrastructure is backed with 24x7x365 monitoring and support. We can even create a physical “air-gapped” solution to separate your infrastructure from other entities within our FedRAMP enclave. This option includes dedicated hardware and cage space, along with our full suite of managed security tools for monitoring.

Increased Efficiency

Our unique offering leverages standardized processes and best-of-breed tools to generate alerts and reports, to help you meet requirements and gain operational efficiencies.

Because our private cloud is FedRAMP JAB authorized — and includes and exceeds FISMA controls (for all levels) — it can accelerate the audit review process and help you move towards Authorization to Operate (ATO) certification more quickly.

Combine this with our consumption-based pricing model, and you can focus your attention and resources on your mission.

Flexibility to Scale

Our FedRAMP private cloud utilizes VMware® ESXi virtualization technology to run virtual machines (VMs) on dedicated physical servers. This increases the flexibility to manage large and small environments.

We can also connect your government private cloud to other clouds to create a true hybrid cloud environment, and provide secure SaaS enablement for public sector software providers.
