Microsoft's cloud software for the government recently received a security certification from USDA.

Microsoft announced the clearance when it received FISMA certification from the department for cloud versions of its email software Exchange, collaboration software SharePoint and messaging software Communications.

Microsoft also received an award contract to provide cloud services for DOI and expects to receive FISMA certification from the transaction. It has been in a public race with Google to provide cloud services for government agencies, including DOI.

BPOS-Federal, Microsoft's software package, is a rival to Google Apps, which is a pay version of Google Docs.
