The General Services Administration‘sÂ Federal Risk and Authorization Management ProgramÂ team has unveiled a set ofÂ high baseline requirementsÂ forÂ agencies to protect unclassified sensitive government data storedÂ inÂ cloud environments.
FedRAMP said FridayÂ three authorized cloud offerings from Amazon Web Services, CSRA and Microsoft meet the program’s high baseline requirements.
The products are AWS’Â GovCloud technology,Â CSRA’sÂ ARC-P infrastructure-as-a-service platform andÂ Microsoft’sÂ Azure GovCloudÂ system.
FedRAMP notedÂ 80 percent of government dataÂ 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 annualÂ government investments on IT systemsÂ that could potentiallyÂ migrateÂ to cloud infrastructure, according to FedRAMP.
