Teresa Carlson, vice president of Amazon Web Services‘ worldwide public sector business, has said many U.S. private sector and foreign government entities have adopted U.S. government baselines as the standard for cloud security, Fedscoop reported Monday.

Greg Otto writes Carlson believes the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program has driven standards implementation and the use of cloud offerings such as AWS GovCloud.

“Enterprises want a model they can snap into, and I think FedRAMP is as good as model as any,” she told Fedscoop.

Jon Check, vice president of Computer Sciences Corp.‘s North American public sector segment, told Fedscoop his company’s own move into GovCloud works to provide a baseline to support its use of a hybrid cloud environment and comply with government standards beyond FedRAMP.
