Oracle's cloud applications suite has achieved FedRAMP Moderate Authorization to provide a standardized security vetting and improve customers' experience by enhancing cloud services and monitoring products, the company announced on Wednesday.
“FedRAMP Authorization for Oracle Cloud Applications is a critical step in meeting the growing demands and compliance requirements of our public sector customers,“ said Tamara Greenspan, group vice president of Oracle's public sector division.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. With the new authorization, Oracle will be able to provide an integrated suite of cloud applications for finance, human resources, supply chain and customer experience to U.S. federal government customers.
Oracle will also enhance its cloud services and applications through achieving best-in-class security, high-end scalability, strong performance and advanced integration capabilities.
“By achieving this authorization, we are able to help the Federal Government tap into our complete and innovative cloud applications suite to not just keep pace, but stay ahead of the evolving business and technology landscape,“ added Greenspan.
In addition to the FedRAMP Authorization, Oracle Cloud Applications has also achieved Impact Level 4 Provisional Authorization from the Defense Information Systems Agency and the Department of Defense in November.
With IL4, Oracle can now offer its software as a service cloud suite to additional government agencies within the DoD community. Since the authorization was granted, the DoD has selected Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud to help transform its HR operations in support of 900K civilian employees.
“At Oracle, our focus is centered on our customers' needs. For U.S. Federal and Department of Defense customers, they need best in class, agile, and secure software to run their operations ““ and we can deliver that,“ said Mark Johnson, senior vice president at Oracle's public sector segment and a former Wash100 Award winner.
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.
