Hewlett-Packard has been certified through a federal government program to provide cloud computing products and services to public sector agencies.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program aims to standardize the government’s framework for evaluating, monitoring and authorizing cloud offerings, HP said Thursday.
“The high sensitivity of the data stored in the cloud requires government CIOs and IT managers to adopt cloud solutions that are trustworthy, reliable and consistent,“ said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager of the U.S. public sector at HP Enterprise Services.
HP’s Enterprise Cloud Services-Virtual Private Cloud is intended for government clients with enterprise workloads and includes a secure configuration platform for users to deploy hosted apps and services.
Agencies can acquire the offering through different procurement vehicles, HP said.
