Oracle announced on Monday that the company has achieved FedRAMP authorization to provide a secure cloud environment where U.S. Government customers can harness the power of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to unlock innovation, improve mission performance and enhance service delivery.
"Cyberattacks in both the private and public sector are not only increasing in volume, but in sophistication," said Edward Screven, chief corporate architect of Oracle. "Business and government must evolve their approach to security and seize the opportunities presented by second-generation cloud architectures and advances in artificial intelligence,“ Screven added.
“Oracle Cloud Infrastructure was engineered to do exactly that, and our FedRamp authorization brings our best-in-class cloud infrastructure to the service of the government to help improve our nation's response to cyber threats."
Oracle has been a long-standing strategic technology partner of the U.S. Government, including the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the first customer to use Oracle's flagship database software 35 years ago. Today, more than 500 government organizations take advantage of Oracle's industry-leading technologies and superior performance. Oracle's cloud services are used by 8 of the top 10 federal agencies by budget, all 4 branches of the U.S. military, and 36 states.
"We are excited to see the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure achieve FedRAMP Authorization," said Brad Gladstone, Managing Director, Accenture Federal Services Oracle practice. "This provides a strong alternative for our federal government clients to leverage, especially those seeking to move large and complex Oracle-based solutions to the cloud."
The Oracle Cloud offers a complete suite of integrated applications for Sales, Service, Marketing, Human Resources, Finance, Supply Chain and Manufacturing, plus Highly Automated and Secure Generation 2 Infrastructure featuring the Oracle Autonomous Database.
