FedRAMP is enabling agencies across federal, state and local levels, to safely access a wide range of cloud-based technologies for digital transformation.
Achieving security is still a concern in hybrid cloud environments. The answer is to shift to a model of cloud security where identity is the new firewall, devices are the new perimeter, and flexibility is built in to the approach.
Agencies are preparing to move more sensitive data to the cloud and are seeking out new resources to ensure security.

While initial Infrastructure-as-a-Service capabilities provided significant benefits, such as cost savings and improved security, there are still untapped advantages of cloud that agencies have not fully realized. One of those advantages gaining momentum is serverless computing.
Agencies at all levels are finding new ways to serve constituents using cloud services, whether it’s improving transportation or protecting the environment.
Agencies are concerned with the security of the data traversing on-premise, hybrid and cloud environments. In this interview, we learned how an end-to-end cloud security environment can be applied.
