NJVC‘s cloud computing services portfolio meets the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s standards, outlined in a draft report released earlier this week.
NJVC said a NIST cloud computing standards working group released its report at a joint cloud and big data forum at its headquarters in Gaithersburg, Md.
“NJVC applauds the NIST Cloud Computing Working Group for providing an excellent baseline for cloud computing standards for the federal government in support of the White House’s ‘Cloud First’ IT strategy,” said Kevin Jackson, vice president and general manager of cloud services. “After performing a comprehensive analysis, NJVC is confident that its Cloudcuity offerings meet or surpass the six NIST use cases and validation measures and is aligned with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program security standards.”
NIST said the workshop focused on the intersection of cloud computing and big data, including how data analytics affect cloud implementation and potential avenues of interoperability between cloud and big data.
“The new NIST cloud computing standards are relevant and of value to commercial industries, such as finance and healthcare,” said Dave Lavanty, senior vice president of the solutions. “Commercial enterprises can leverage the highly secure practices of the federal government as they deploy hybrid cloud computing business model strategies and technologies.
“NJVC looks forward to delivering its solutions and to both public- and private-sector customers,” he said.
