Hewlett Packard has won a subcontract awarded by SecureKey Technologies to provide cloud computing services for a federal authentication program run by the U.S. Postal Service.
The Federal Cloud Credential Exchange works to help individuals and organizations use approved digital credentials in order to access online government services, HP said Wednesday.
HP will offer its FedRAMP-approved cloud technology to support SecureKey’s briidge.net Exchange platform for the FCCX initiative.
“Agencies are faced with delivering the next level of customer service as citizens are increasingly looking to the federal government to provide services online,” said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager of the U.S. public sector at HP Enterprise Services.
SecureKey will implement FCCX under a three-year contract (click here for more coverage on GovCon Wire).
HP’s Enterprise Cloud Services – Virtual Private Cloud for U.S. Public Sector is designed as an infrastructure-as-a-service platform and seeks to address data protection requirements.
A third-party assessment organization verified HP cloud’s compliance with international arms trade and healthcare law requirements.
