“Secure, scalable cloud services are critical for digital constituent services, and Acquia Cloud is designed to provide the enterprise-class security and reliability that government requires,” said Tom Erickson, Acquia CEO. “As part of the Digital Government Strategy, federal agencies are adopting open source technology for greater innovation, while Cloud First initiatives are providing speed and efficiency for IT projects. Acquia is an important partner in helping federal agencies speed their adoption of open source, gain cost and operational efficiencies through cloud computing, and assure compliance with strict requirements for security and control.”
Government is increasingly looking to open source to share more effectively and “innovate with less.” By leveraging shared platforms to deliver digital services, federal agencies are adopting new technologies more rapidly while reducing cost and duplication. With Drupal, agencies innovate faster and can respond to the evolving demands for delivering constituent services digitally. Acquia Cloud provides a secure, highly available environment for Drupal. FISMA compliance for Acquia Cloud at the moderate level attests that required security controls are in place to meet and exceed compliance standards for cloud computing.
In addition to its FISMA ATO, Acquia is focused on achieving FedRAMP authorization. FedRAMP will supersede FISMA for cloud services like Acquia Cloud, enabling streamlined federal authorization for cloud services. Acquia has included FedRAMP controls in its FISMA documentation and is working on FedRAMP authorization for Acquia Cloud. Acquia Cloud is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and utilizes Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), which has received a FedRAMP authorization.
