SAP National Security Services — a U.S.-based subsidiary of the German software and technology conglomerate — and Virtustream have partnered to deliver standards-compliant cloud services to federal agency clients.

SAP NS2 will help agencies with migrations of applications into managed and secure cloud platforms in an effort to comply with the government-wide Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, the companies said Tuesday.

“This offering combines our expertise in cloud, technology and security to formulate something unique for our customers,“ said Carmen Krueger, senior vice president and general manager for cloud operations at SAP NS2.

The companies seek to bring cloud-based SAP HANA tools to federal agencies through their partnership.

Virtustream holds a FedRAMP provisional authority-to-operate accreditation at the program’s moderate level and agencies can use that P-ATO to grant their own ATO for the company’s cloud offerings.
