Lockheed Martin has been designated an approved provider of community cloud computing services to federal, state and local agencies from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board, which approves cloud products and services on a governmentwide level.
The board comprises of chief information officers from the General Services Administration and the departments of Homeland Security and Defense, Lockheed said Thursday.
“Our secure community cloud offering was built FedRAMP ready and has been serving government agencies and other regulated industry customers since 2012,” said Stephanie Hill, vice president of Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions-civil business.
Coalfire Federal, a division of Coalfire Systems, served as an independent FedRAMP-accredited third party assessment organization for the process and audited Lockheed’s security controls on its cloud service offerings.
FedRAMP is intended as a standardized approach for agencies to assess, authorize and monitor cloud security.
